Magic Johnson: Black people will vote for Obama or nobody

On Tuesday evening, Erin Burnett asked Obama supporter Magic Johnson about the sickening hate directed at actress Stacey Dash for her pro-Romney tweet.

What does being black mean for how you'll vote? Race matters: @MagicJohnson on the @REALStaceyDash controversy:

Finally. We were so hoping Magic would weigh in.

Johnson told Burnett, “It’s a shame that Stacey is being attacked like this.” But then he diminished her opinion by insisting that very few black people would join her.

Quote from Magic Johnson: "African Americans will vote for Obama or stay home."

“African-Americans,” he said, are “either going to vote for President Obama or they’re going to stay home and vote for nobody.”

Despite Moby’s expert opinion that fewer than zero black people intend to vote for Romney, we’ve seen ample evidence of black conservatives who support the GOP candidate. CNN doesn’t have much of an audience, but those who caught wind of Burnett’s interview slammed Johnson for making the election about race.

Who are these "Ballers & Hip-hopers" who claim to speak on behalf of the entire black race? Magic Johnson needs to speak for himself.

Hi @PiersMorgan, I'll love to come on and give a rebuttal to @MagicJohnson's claim that blacks will either vote for Obama or stay home.

So @MagicJohnson all of a sudden is a political expert on how blacks will vote in Nov.?? Stick to the NBA sir…errrr…or the Dodgers.

I find it laughable that CNN has Magic Johnson speaking for the black community on us voting as a block.

@MagicJohnson What an ignorant statement to make. No black people will vote for Romney? 15% unemployment for blacks and 32% for Black Youth

Magic Johnson, you're so ignorant. "African Americans will either vote for Obama or stay home." What? Why put race into it? So annoying.

Johnson has yet to respond to his conservative critics on Twitter.
