All of my black friends that do well in life are conservative even if they don't realize it and/or haven't adhered to a label. The socioeconomically challenged blacks tend to be more liberal. The old saying seems to be true: "The more money you make, the more conservative you become [naturally]."

The funny thing, blacks in general, on a WIDE scale, are conservative.

1) Blacks are churchgoing folk and most identify as religious.
2) Blacks generally are against homosexuality
3) Blacks believe that if a person earns money, they are entitled to keep as much as possible
4) Blacks believe family is important
5) Blacks respect and honor the military


The liberal whites however, infected the blacks with this notion that they are helpless second class citizens that need to be carried around for fear of burning their feet on the hot sand (competitive marketplace.)

Watch interviews with black folks where they are asked policy questions without the candidate attached, the responses would surprise most.

(Same goes for latinos.)

How i feel about white people? You guys really love to spin **** around here. Trump got the majority vote from white working class males so my comment makes perfect sense. These voters believe Trump will stop the illegals from taking their jobs, and the muslims from starting a jihad and Trump will make their wages increase and their debt dissapear. Yeah...none of this will happen. Trump is a politician like every other.... voters will soon realize this. And since his biggest voting block was white males then yes my comment was directed at them. It had nothing to do with my views of white people. You guys really love smelling your own farts.

I think some other dude assumed i was a broke ghetto black person it appears from my posts. Chip on the shoulder much?

Funny thing is that people continue to divide themselves into Reps or Dems. Conservatives or Liberals...as if ANY political party makes a difference.

Trump and Hillary were the poster childs of career politicians and ruthless capitalism.

I've asked multiple times in one of the LEO threads about your ethnic background, but you always manage to circumvent the inquiry. Why the avoidance?

The political party may not hold much weight these days, but the differences in ideology and perspective between a conservative and a liberal are huge.

Bc i dont see how it relates. But to please your search bc i have identified myself in other threads. I am an ivy league educated latino male.

Between a liberal and conservative absolutely. Between a liberal and conservative POLITICIAN...not so much. Yeah they pass very diff laws but ultimately all carry the same end goal.

Wrong again, Trump was always going to get the white conservative vote, but that wasn't enough...what Trump got, what the other republicans, including Romney were NOT able to get are the very same white DEMOCRATS that put Obama into office. No Trump voter believes anything of what you said, and your blind regurgitation of rhetoric rather than looking at actual facts is exactly why Hillary lost....no one is buying the bullsh!t you're selling, and this time, not even the democrats bought it.

BTW, my above post is backed up with math, so if you'd like the numbers run for you, I can get Zell in here pronto.

Why do you keep saying that Trump was a politician?

Did you vote for him? Was it bc "he is not a politician"

He is a salesman. Same **** diff toilet. The guy is a genius marketer but i dont believe half the crap that came out of his mouth. Maybe thats why i am not as concerned as my peers with his presidency. Itll just be more of the same.

Why do you think they voted for him? A big "f u" to washington perhaps?

It is beyond terrible. It's the only thing I really care about going to a new president, and this guy is about to seriously do the planet in with all this drill baby drill nonsense.. I could deal with the social conservatism, but his environmental policy is beyond atrocious. I hope him the worst, and Mike Pence too, may a swift assassination be in order..

We could at least implement some geo-engineering temporary fixes, but when you have people who won't even believe there's a problem, why bother?

Atmospheric data from ice cores allows us to accurately model the changes in CO2 back hundreds of thousands of years and while we do see the CO2 level naturally fluctuating, it has blown past any previous highs and is continuing to climb.

This plot really sends the point home and is a great visualization between the difference between weather and climate. Weather accounts for the small seasonal fluctuations; climate is the overall trend


And here is the plot showing CO2 levels on a longer timescale, ending December 2013.

It's not the only thing I care about, but it's a huge issue for me.
