"Democrats worry as young blacks drift from party." The New York Times. 08/08/2003. LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas -- The debate had become a familiar one for LaShannon Spencer. As director of political affairs for the Democratic Party of Arkansas, Spencer, 30, is charged with taking the pulse of voters and keeping them connected to the party. But at Cajun's Wharf, a restaurant and bar on the banks of the Arkansas River that is popular with young professionals, Spencer's political pitch was met with skepticism. "Democrats just assume my political affiliation, based on my ZIP code or voting precinct," said Khayyam Eddings, a 31, a labor lawyer, referring to his predominantly black neighborhood. He was one of three African-American men engaged with Spencer in an animated discussion. "I don't cast my ballot based on learned behavior." Eddings's comments were emblematic of what some Democratic strategists fear may be a growing problem: The party is perilously out of touch with a large swath of black voters - those aged 18 to 35, who grew up after the groundbreaking years of the civil rights movement. It is a group too important and complex to ignore, many caution, when analysts are predicting another close election in which every vote counts. Democrats have traditionally counted on more than 90 percent of the black vote. Post-civil-rights-era blacks make up roughly 40 percent of the black voting-age population, but turnout among young blacks was so low in the 2000 elections that they made up only 2 percent of the entire vote. Democratic leaders are expressing concern about the disengagement. Young blacks are responding by warning the party not to take their votes for granted. "Not only do I not see myself as part of the base," Nnamdi Thompson, 30, an investment banker, told Spencer at the restaurant, "I wish the Democratic Party would stop seeing me as part of its base. We have more power as voters if they have to come and court us." A 32-year-old lawyer, a friend of the other two who did not want to give his name because of his involvement in state politics, also offered his take. "I question whether the party sees us at all," he said. First they calculate who they do not want to alienate, he said, adding: "Then they decide on acceptable losses. We seem to fall into the acceptable losses." Spencer, who is also African-American, said these frustrations are not unusual. "These are the concerns I hear over and over," she said. "These are people who care, people the party needs. If we could only convince them of that." Over the years, blacks have proved a reliable source of support for Democrats, whom they viewed as more responsive than Republicans to their issues and concerns. But members of generations X and Y, raised on hip-hop and the Internet, in a niche-marketed culture, are proving to be a tougher sell. [P]olls show that younger blacks are more open to at least exploring initiatives shunned by the Democratic Party, like school vouchers and the partial privatization of Social Security. .... In 2000, 74 percent of African-Americans identified themselves as Democrats. By last year, that number had dropped to 63 percent, according to a recent survey by the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, an organization devoted to African-American issues. [A]n increasing number, especially those between the ages of 18 and 35, are identifying as independents. Some 24 percent of black adults now characterize themselves that way. Among those 35 and under, said David Bositis, a senior researcher at the Joint Center who conducted the survey, the figures run between 30 and 35 percent, with men leaning more heavily independent than women. Racist Swedes Just Like Pope Pius XII Swedes claim to be Lutheran, but in reality they are racist nazis just like Pope Pius XII. Pope Pius XII also objected to the presence of African-American soldiers who had defeated hilter's inferior army on the grounds that "Italian women will fall in love with their Negro liberators." See "Pope Pius XII: Hitler's Pope." CBS 60 Minutes. 3/19/2001.
