So, in emailing back and forth with my neighbor, I did a little research. My research was about Martin Luther King being a Republican. I wonder if my friend knows that. If not, he does now. Anyway, I found the website of the National Black Republican Association. They have a newsletter called, "Which Candidate is best for African Americans?" and it's about Obama vs McCain.
Here's the Newsletter
"Obama has done little to help blacks. Obama claims to care about poor blacks, but he has a dismal record. He promises to raise the minimum wage, but he voted against the minimum wage bill that was finally passed in Congress. Obama was a “community organizer” in Chicago. If his messianic message of “Hope” and “Change” is so powerful, why are poor blacks in Chicago still poor? Socialism does not work."
"We need the right president, not just a black president."
"● All Americans received tax cuts under
Bush’s tax cut plan—108 million average
families received $2,500. Over 3.8 million
more poor people were freed from the tax
rolls entirely, and poor blacks received an
additional gift of $1,000 per child plus $1,658
per family under the Earned Income Tax
Credit program. “Tax cuts for the rich” is a
deceptive Democratic Party talking point."
There are MANY more like this. I highly recommend you read it...
