I’ve watched CNN for awhile this morning, and one of the stories they’ve run several times is one about which Democratic candidate would get “the black vote.” 

To me, that seems the epitome of racist assumptions.  As though African-Americans are one block vote?  In essence, the MSM puts black voters into a box, and then assume that they ALL will vote for a Democratic candidate.  African-Americans aren’t given credit for being individuals with individual beliefs and goals.   I don’t hear discussions of the “white vote” or the “native American vote” or the “Muslim American vote.”  The assumption is that if someone is black – he/she is a Democrat.  And furthermore, all blacks will all vote for the same Democratic candidate.

It is surprising to me that the leaders of African-American groups don’t call the news networks on their obvious stereotyping.
