Van Jones: Obama could come out as gay and he wouldn’t lose the black vote

Wow, is Van Jones suggesting that black people are homophobic?

Sure sounds like it. But beyond that outrageously stereotypical smear, here’s his point:

“President Obama is not going to lose the black vote no matter what he does.”

So never mind that the black unemployment rate is at 14.1% (to name just one example). That’s probably Bush’s fault anyway, right? Apparently Jones thinks Obama’s skin color alone is enough to ensure lockstep support from blacks regardless of how miserably he fails as President or how much he takes that particular demographic for granted.
