But what you say still doesn't make sense; even if the south has a greater African population and the region supports more left-wing parties, that's nothing more than a correlation. A number of countries in Africa, for example, have religious right-wing parties in power despite being demographically & economically similar to the said region in AF. You specifically said that demographics also determines political support and then went on to talk about "hood mentality", and that's racial prejudice. There is absolutely no reason to make any such assumptions.
I'm sure from previous updates he explained it has a large African population (or "African-Atlantian" I assume they would be called in the AF ). In Europe for example you frequently see Leftist parties monopolizing support amongst minority groups. I don't mean to single out African people in particular, as it's often the same with most minority groups worldwide. So yes, demographics do determine political allegiances in that sense, not just economics.

You could've worded it slightly different so we would understand clearly what you're trying to say. Regardless, I'm not sure how many non-prejudiced people would take this much note of a correlation between demographics and political ideology, which is why I was worried.
Lol, yes it was one word. But you don't have to be prejudiced to notice the correlation, just look at the results of almost any election in the Western world these days. The correlation is obvious and pretty hard to miss (a bit of an elephant in the room in fact).
