IMSalmon: "As I suggested in an earlier post it now all depends on whether African-Americans vote their real interests or continue to support HC out of a sense of loyalty to the old Democratic Party or whatever."
"It all depends"? That seems to me like an awfully big finger to point at Black folks in this election, and you admit ('whatever") that you haven't even examined what you're pointing at. To win over voters, the candidate's campaign and the media play two huge roles. And if we're just thinking about the math of how this thing will be tallied, then there are those super(undemocratic)delegates that much will "depend" on, too.
But while I dislike your unexamined blaming, as I see it, you do point at an important question: why are (most, so far, although certainly not all) Black voters (which, of course, does not at all mean a majority of Black folks as a whole, nor a proportionate class representation of African Americans, I would guess) voting for "bring them to heel" Clinton? To answer that, I think, requires looking deeply at the history of white supremacy in the U.S., but just as if not more importantly, asking Black folks themselves, and asking many of them. I just did a web search on this question, and really couldn't find much that went beyond mass media non-answering of the question. I think that the legacy of white supremacy actually is part of why such a question isn't even really asked widely and deeply, even though it is one that is ultimately pivotal to progressive change in the U.S. and in the world. That is, the question of how to build a broadly inclusive nonviolent revolution for transformation for universal benefit.
There is one link I want to share, though, for I found it helpful in understanding more about the work needing to be done related to this question:
