Racial resentment is increasing, and it plays a major role in how Obamaand the Democratic Partyis perceived.
Thomas Edsall has a fascinating column in todays New York Times on the persistence of racial resentment in the Obama-era. For those not familiar with the term, racial resentment is defined as the convergence of anti-black sentiments with traditional American views on hard work and individualism.
Its measured using questions that focus on race and effort. People who answer in the affirmative to questions like thisIrish, Italian, Jewish and many other minorities overcame prejudice and worked their way up. Blacks should do the same without any special favorsand in the negative to questions like thisGenerations of slavery and discrimination have created conditions that make it difficult for blacks to work their way out of the lower classare assigned a high place on the resentment scale.
Edsall runs though recent research from a variety of sources to show the extent to which President Obamas term has coincided with a sharp increase in the proportion of Americans who express anti-black attitudes. In one survey, for example, The percentage of voters with explicit anti-black attitudes rose from 47.6 in 2008 and 47.3 percent in 2010 to 50.9 percent in 2012. This wasnt a uniform changenot only were Republicans more likely to express anti-black attitudes, but people who identified themselves as Republicans in 2012 expressed such attitudes more often than their counterparts of 2008:
In 2008, Pasek and his collaborators note, the proportion of people expressing anti-Black attitudes was 31 percent among Democrats, 49 percent among independents, and 71 percent among Republicans. By 2012, the numbers had gone up. The proportion of people expressing anti-Black attitudes, they write, was 32 percent among Democrats, 48 percent among independents, and 79 percent among Republicans.(continued)

This article is incomplete as there is an even larger wave of anti-White racism. Push and push back hatred is a large part of the Obama political agenda. There is nothing new here.
Au Contraire, mon ami....NOT when you consider the mentality is that "whitey has to share"....Obamaphones, illegitimate babies, welfare, food stamps, Section 8 housing, Heating Assistance, cash, etc., etc.
4 Generations have lived the parasitic lifestyle, and as a result they have ALWAYS voted for the Party of Handouts, and ALWAYS will (until the money runs out, and then they go to Suburbia to take what they have been told is their "Right").
Racism is the kind of toxic race obsession that sees "American views on hard work and individualism" as "anti-black".
Whereas Americans who value hard work and individualism admire it in anyone who shares those values regardless of race.
Its measured using questions that focus on race and effort. "
The people who pose these kinds of questions, with the intent of marginalizing hard work, individualism, and traditional American values, are themselves race obsessed propagandists. Actually they don't care about black people except as they can use them to combat traditional American values. Blacks and hispanics who embody traditional American values and actually vote in line with their values are attacked right along with the rest of us... even more viciously.
Why are we even giving this a hearing. I have NEVER heard of this rag. It looks like something with a lower following than CNN. This article is just another smear attempt. Which party has the ONE black senator? Oh, it’s Republicans, and not just any Republicans, conservative Republicans.
Democrats have African Americans in the house who come from 99% AFRICAN AMERICAN DISTRICTS. Does anyone think Maxine Waters would get elected anywhere outside her nutjob precinct?
It’s all BS.
So now it’s not just racism, it’s “anti-black” racism. The next buzzword will surely be “white anti-black racism”.
Martin Luther King, Jr. would score high on racial resentment because he believed people should be judged on the content of their character and not the color of their skin.
I wonder what he would think of the character of someone who has have a dozen baby mommas and thirteen or fourteen kids.
For that matter what would he think of the character of Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson?
I think we should refer this matter to the WHITE Congressional Caucus.
>>As Ive stated before, race shapes right-wing opposition to Obama, but doesnt define it. Still, these results signal that outright racism might have more to do with opposition to Obama than we think. This shouldnt come as a huge surprise.<<
So committing the scientific cardinal sin of applying one set of findings to another unrelated conclusion is Okey Dokey!
The Race Card dressed up as a pig with lipstick still means you can’t take it out to dance.
This is insulting to all of science and reverse racism in its worst form. This guy should be taken out and tarred and feathered.
Its conservative whites who have been most vocal about standing up for black rights through the simple act of standing up for our own.
We have illegal gang members conducting a campaign of genocide on blacks in southern California and the democrats won’t even speak of it. Blacks aren’t happy with Obama over gay marriage or immigration.
I grew up in a racially mixed neighborhood in southern Los Angeles, and went to school with whites, asians, blacks, and latinos. I enjoyed much interaction with all. I used to hang out with them in various situations and thought nothing of it and enjoyed their fellowship.
When I joined the Navy, it re-enforced my beliefs that all are created equal, and even had a black man as a very close friend. I simply didn't see him any other way than as a shipmate and a friend. We never talked about race because we both thought it stupid.
However, as I've watched the blacks (they are NOT Africans) keep building their welfare/gimme base and their racist attitudes towards whites over the years, along with their racist pimps, I am becoming extremely negative towards them. I freely admit under the 1st Amendment of the Constitution that I being forced to become a racist.
Bottom line: Anyone who does not want to join the best society this World has ever seen and give crap to those who had nothing to do with your ancestry or current problems, can just kiss my ever-loving a*s. At 63, I'm done playing nice. You want to be a victim and blame me? Then you will understand why I'm turning against your race/ethnicity. Deal with it.

Gee, inciting a race war is divisive? Who would have guessed?
No, that was goal of welfare, to relegate the black male to the status of a live sex toy, and destroy the black family.
"Single motherhood" is the surest formula for poverty that there is.
I don’t think I have ever been on Chelsea Blvd and I doubt I ever will.
We need to have a Zimbabwe Channel as the only one available on 0bama Cable.
Unfortunately, 'taint so.
I ordered the pamphlet “Black Skin Privilege” from frontpagemag.com. Even without yet having the opportunity to read it , I know how it will read. Ordered it for the official statistics.
I can honestly state that I have never judged a person by the color of their skin. I can honestly state that I am prejudiced against people who refuse to become Americans.
Rugged individualism, hard-work and love of country defines American in my book. LaToya & Keisha? Please...that’s the beginning of a problem for me, people who refuse to become Americans. 93% of blacks voted for Obama, and I’m the racist? As Eminem says, I am whatever you say I am and if I wasn’t them why would you say I am...
Black racism creates resentment among whites, Asians, and hispanics? Yep.
