32. I can't believe this post is still getting replies. It's absurd.
His theory is obviously bullshit. I mean, how many of you here would actually change your vote because someone of a different race supported your candidate?

Most whites in this country would just assume that all blacks are going to be voting for Obama anyway. Whites who are supporting him would never be shocked to find out that blacks like him too. They'd be more shocked to hear that some African-Americans are actually supporting Hillary.
