My grandmother (RIP) was a lifelong democrat. I remember when they put out the Richard Nixon stamp, she said she didn't know which side to spit on.

I almost voted for Richard Nixon in 1972.

I would guess 1960.

Well, obviously. I never said it was race exclusive.

Whites (many) - like my father & grandfathers lived through the depression. They, rightly or wrongly, blamed the Republicans. My father was a great fan of FDR. He believed he 'saved' the country. I never had the courage or disrepect to counter his argument.

Nixon might have gotten 12% in 1972. These data are courtesy of the ANES. The sample size for black voters in pretty small, so the margin of error isn't ideal.

Terrorists.

With terrorists, stupid people care less about negros, and more about terrorist-killin.

I know that I no longer see skin color. Just unkempt beards. *I'm watching you*
