Q: summary of economic, social, and political standings of African Americans
A: Collectively, African Americans are more involved in the American political process than other minority groups in the United States, [ [ indicated by the highest level of voter registration and participation in elections among these groups in 2004.[59] African Americans collectively attain higher levels of education than immigrants to the United States.[59] African Americans also have the
highest level of Congressional representation of any minority group in the U.S.[60] The large majority of African Americans support the Democratic Party. In the 2004 Presidential Election, Democrat John Kerry received 88% of the African American vote compared to 11% for Republican George W. Bush.[61] Although there is an African-American lobby in foreign policy, it has not had the impact that African American organizations have had in domestic policy.[62] Historically, African Americans were supporters of the Republican Party because it was Republican President Abraham Lincoln who helped in granting freedom to American slaves; at the time, the Republicans and Democrats represented the sectional interests of the North and South, respectively, rather than any specific ideology, and both right and left were represented equally in both parties. The African American trend of voting for Democrats can be traced back to the 1930s during the Great Depression, when Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal program provided economic relief to African Americans; Roosevelt's New Deal coalition turned the Democratic Party into an organization of the working class and their liberal allies, regardless of region. The African American vote became even more solidly Democratic when Democratic presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson pushed for civil rights legislation during the 1960s. After over 50 years, marriage rates for all Americans began to decline while divorce rates and out-of-wedlock births have climbed.[63] These changes have been greatest among African Americans. ] ]
