Obama Launches “African Americans for Obama” Targeting Minority Voting Blocs

Trymaine Lee of the Huffington Post writes, “In the latest push to energize and engage black voters, President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign this morning launched African Americans for Obama, with a video introduction from the president himself.”

“This month we are announcing the 2012 launch of African Americans for Obama,” the president announced in the video provided to The Huffington Post by the campaign. “I don’t think there’s a better time than African-American history month to consider the tremendous progress that we’ve made through the sacrifices of so many, or a better time to commit to meeting the very real challenges we face right now.”

In the video, the president makes a somewhat rare, direct overture to black voters, urging them to “keep making history.”

“Every day I think of the generations of African-American men and women who overcame slavery and oppression, risked their own safety to cast a ballot, even gave up their lives to help build a country that lived up to its founding principles,” President Obama said in the video, which runs about a minute and 44 seconds. “Their extraordinary hope, their unwavering determination changed this country. Their efforts made it possible for somebody like me to be here today.”

African Americans for Obama will be a part of Operation Vote, the campaign’s outreach arm to select voting blocs, including African Americans, Hispanics, Jews, LGBTQs, youth and older voters.”

Obama 2012 campaign’s Operation Vote focuses on ethnic minorities – not the majority population. White American voters have been thrown under the bus. The voting blocs clearly represent non-white groups. The message to the coalition of voting blocs is a historical reference to slavery. No mention of the dominant slave merchants or a historical reference about white enslavement.

President Obama’s campaign is developing an aggressive new program to expand support from ethnic minority groups and other traditional Democratic voters as his team studies an increasingly narrow path to victory in 2012’s reelection effort.

According to the census, the non-Hispanic White population for 2010 was 72%. The Black population was 12.3%. 15.7% of other voters.

I am guessing that it is O.K to organize a “White Americans for Merlin Miller”? This is no time for individualism. This is the time to organize as an ethnno-political voting bloc. Other groups are organizing voting blocs. Why shouldn’t White Americans?

The American Third Position is the only party that is concerned with issues and events concerning White Americans. Every voter is welcome to join us.

    I think you guys are missing the point. This is just a way to bring his supporters in different groups together. Candidates do this by showing they have "Black supporters" Military Supporters" "LGBT Supporters" "Immigrant Supporters" etc. Forming a party that brings the MAJORITY together in order to set this country backwards and accept unacceptable behavior in TODAY's society is uncalled for and of course will turn out to look unappealing to the majority(not speaking in a sense of race here) of America. It's time for EVERYONE to get over race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, etc and focus progressing as HUMANS on this planet that has had many other animals go extinction. If we don't stop this battle against our own species then we're all going to be next in life for extinction!!

      Obama did not address “LGBT Supporters” or “Immigrant Supporters” etc. Obama targeted “African Americans”. In a democracy it is “majority rule” not “minority tyranny”. You fail to see Demographic-Chaos and Culture-Clash. Do you think we are each an identical unit with no unique characteristics or culture? Humans have lived for millennium as different groups and ethno-types. You seem to think there is something wrong and dangerous about that. You are welcome to live in your uni-cultural fantasy wonderland. There are some folks who don’t want that. And that is a valid choice too.

    I'm sure that this was only done to counter all those "whites only" groups like the White Coaches Association, the White Chamber of Commerce, the White Congressional Caucus, the White Miss America Pageant, the National Association of White People and all the other white-only groups. Oh, wait! That's right! THERE ARE NO SUCH THINGS! All of the above are for BLACKS! Silly me! Well, what's one more black group after all since blacks are so marginalized and rejected in American Society. Oh, wait! That's right! There's a BLACK President and the entertainment and sports industries are FILLED with blacks while "affirmative action" gives blacks precedence over more qualified whites in many areas of the society. What was all this about again? Oh, yes! The big "R" – that is "racism" only THIS time, the shoe is on the other foot. I don't guess, however, we'll hear much about it, ya think?
