Opinion: Black-on-Black Racism During The Presidential Campaign

Opinion: The Unreported Racism Of The 2012 Election: 0% Of African-Americans Support Romney

The media keeps suggesting that the racism regarding candidates has to do with whites not wanting to vote for a black man, even though Barack Obama won a presidential election with a great amount of white support in 2008. What the media isn’t talking about is the NBC-Wall Street survey results which say that there are basically no black supporters for the Caucasian candidate, Mitt Romney, in 2012.
