Historically, blacks were overwhelmingly conservative and voted Republican during Reconstruction up to the 1950's.
During this time, blacks:
lead the nation in 2 parent homes and marriage higher than their white counter-parts.
did not glorify violence
lead a protestant work-ethic
excelled in education
excelled in entrepreneurship
crime was much lower than ratio to other races
During the 1960's, after black women joined ranks with the feminism movement, blacks:
lead the nation in out of wedlock births
single parent homes
glorifying a thug culture
overwhelmingly lead life of dependency (food stamps and welfare)
It is the new acceptance of liberal policies (since the 1960's) that have blacks in the state that WE are in.
