There is no logic to that. Indiana, as an example only has a black population of 12%. If Obama won 49% of the vote then his race had very little if anything to do with it.
And you can go through any state and see that he won high percentage of the total vote, not just black votes. Iowa would be a very good example. The "won because he is black" answer is just utter nonsense.
But you are missing an entire demographic:
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
