Are Black People voting for Obama just because he's Black??

It has been said that politics is WAR without the bloodshed. But to the victors go the spoils. The losers get misery, discomfort, and the erosion of their quality of life, leading to mental, physical, fianancial and spiritual depression -- on the way, perhaps, to early graves. Surviviors get the chance to regroup and prepare for the next battle.

In the U.S. politics seem to be the unending process of Civil War -- with race, sex, wealth and spiritual orientation providing the major dividing lines; with the two major parties seeking to assure all interests that their programs and promises are best for the nation and its citizens, and all the world.

In the midst of this ongoing process, at the critical 2012 juncture, folks want to know if Black people are voting for Barack Obama simply because he is Black? Or do he and the Democrats represent an approach to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" that is more appealing than that offered by Mitt Romney and the Republicans & Tea Party?

Join us, as we explore these and other aspects of the ongoing political season, as we anticipate the second "Presidential Debate," and the November elections.
