I live in NY

I do not believe we will have riots in the street, and if there were, I believe that black Americans would be on both sides of any fighting.

I think there are many blacks who know Obama is a disaster.

I believe in black Americans as much as white Americans, and think they will largely stand up for their country.

Do I think too many poor Americans will side with Obama, and many of them will react based on race? Yes, demagogueing race is as old as Lincoln.

I refuse to sell black Americans short, too many have risen out of policy in a uniquely American way. Are too many still in poverty yes? Will they react badly? Yes. Should we help them? Yes, the first step will be ignoring their tantrum and dealing with any bad behavior and then giving them real opportunity and a real stop to supporting bad behavior.
