    As a Chinese citizen lived in States for a couple of years, I did see several interesting social and political phenomena there.

    If we check the racial components of electors voting for Republicans or the Democrats, we could possibly see a slightly (yet statistically significant) difference. A government focusing more on complementary social welfare might gain more supports from African Americans (who possess a higher tendency to live relying on social walfare), which, again, is not under fully studied.

    Just only thoughts: African Americans might need to think more on themselves just as John Kennedy said "what did they do for the Country."

      Supporting social walfare does not necessarily mean hoping to live relying on social walfare!

      Wow most of the responses on this thread amaze me. Perhaps you are unfamiliar with American history & even if you were its possible you still would not be aware of Afro American contributions. Sir we have literally built this country. The labor of Blacks in bondage poured 100's of trillions of dollars into the US economy over the 250 years of US slavery..  Today we a pour 1.5 trillion every year into the US economy. We are the only race besides Whites that have faught in every war this country has had & the 1st to die for the American  Revolution was a Black man named Crispus Attucks. My father was in the Navy & my Grand Father faught in WW2. Despite our efforts to amalgamate the very government has worked against us to qoute Nixon & his cabninet men

      "Haldeman, referring to the President as "P," said: "P emphasized that you have to face the fact that the whole problem is really the blacks. The key is to devise a system that recognizes this while not appearing to"
      this is right after the so called Civil Rights victories.  Victories that helped lift racist immigration policies that have helped Asians enter this country on visa or other wise. So when you quote Kennedy as if to question what Blacks have done for this country "you have insulted me & the shoalin temple"
