Washington (CNN) – A new Census Bureau report shows a higher percentage of African-Americans than whites voted in a presidential election for the first time in history last year during the matchup between President Obama and GOP nominee Mitt Romney.
The report, released Wednesday, found that more than 66% of eligible blacks voted in the presidential contest. Only 64.1% of whites turned out to vote.
This marks the first time since 1968 that blacks turned out at a higher rate the whites.
In addition to blacks turning out at a higher rate, the number of Asian and Hispanic voters grew from 2008 to 2012. Hispanics added 1.4 million people and Asians added over 500,000. Between 1996 and 2012, blacks, Asians and Hispanics all saw their percentage of the voting population increase.
Sadly many Whites had trouble establishing a political vehicle to share their political beliefs with other similarly thinking Americans as the IRS, EPA and OSHA felt the need (How Strange?) to stop and "investigate" them prior to the elections. Hard to motivate the masses when the would be leaders of the Tea Party Type Groups are DENIED THE RIGHTS GRANTED BY OUR FOUNDERS! Only in America...USSR, China, Cuba, Vietnam...
We're becoming a minority in the US and Europe. If current trends continue we will fade out of existence. It's called genocide.
Stop white geNOcide! Now.
Does the % include those multipletimes voters or dead black American voters....your democrats so I'm assuming it does.
11% of the country outvoted 55%...I don't think the whites wanted to vote for romney the rino liberal anymore than wanted to vote for communist obama. Luckily I'm native and not really concerned with what color your tyranical dictator is.
