  • I would never assume anybody would do such an assinine thing, unless I knew them well enough to come to that conclusion, so no.

  • Considering over 90% of black people did vote for Obama, it wouldn't be an unreasonable guess. But you could be one of the few that didn't.
    The important question is did you vote for Obama because HE is black, if you did vote for him.

  • No, I would not assume that you did, because I have heard from far too many black people who did NOT vote for O. to assume that every single black person voted for him. Also, there were far too many white people who DID vote for him.

  • over 90% of black people did vote for Obama
    -----
    Is this 90% of the black population in the US,
    90% of the black registered voters, or
    90% of the black people who voted in the election?
