More blacks voted, fewer whites, in Ohio, Obama won. His black constituency was on fire for him, economics be damned.
Reminds me of Congr. Danny Davis (D-IL), who told a black audience in 2009 he didn’t care what Obamacare would cost and was applauded. They didn’t either. It’s a black “thang,” as a phony civil rights type I knew used to say on Roosevelt Road in the mid-’60s.
