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)

Not this sh#t again.......
Obama is black? When is he going to stop acting like a Northeastern liberal WASP insider, then? :)
This is absurd.
So correctly observing that the “Great Society” and affirmative action crap failed the black community is racist?
Cue the “Bob is a Racist” video.
Its not my fault that most blacks choose the safety of the democrat plantation.
However those that choose to leave get a sincere welcome from me and their race evaporates like fog in my eyes.
Boo hoo. When they start worrying about anti-white attitudes and looking at black racial animosity let’s talk. Otherwise who gives a crap?
More ginning up of the race machine by leftists.
Theres only one race, the human race..
Any using the term racism has their hand in your pocket diddling something there..
Bewitching you UNLESS you cut their hand off at the wrist..
Want to see racism? Drive down Chelsea Blvd in Memphis during the daylight if you are white. Your life will be in danger if one has to stop at a light.
Bingo. Nothing has down more to set beck the advancement of American minorities more than the war on poverty. The government has turned these communities away from traditional values of family, faith, and hard work to a never ending cycle of dependency. The people they elect to represent them betray them at their earliest convenience for their own financial reward.
Considering that thousands of whites are beaten, raped, and murdered by blacks in racially motivated attacks every year. And that Eric “my people” Holder has openly stated that whites are NOT protected by federal hate crime laws against racially motivated violence, it is not surprising that white awareness is spreading of this double standard despite the best attempts of a corrupt liberal media to ignore it.
So more and more whites are starting to judge violent racist blacks negatively by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin.
It is the racist white liberals that must judge all blacks favorably by the color of their skin and ignore the content of the character of many.
We live in north Mississippi, the news out of Memphis every night is a horror show.
No one has done more to fuel hatred of blacks in this country than Barak Hussein Obama.
His constant whining about “fairness” and “revenge”, etc.
has set race relations back 50 years.
I truly hate his White half just as bad as the rest of him!
> Part of the effort to take conservative Republicans and Tea Partiers out of the mainstream and sideline them as racists, zealots, hillbillies and beyond the pale.
Unless we call them on it and stop being wimps and letting them use it as a power tool. If they don’t feel equal by this time in our society it’s not our fault; it’s theirs.
Yep anti black here is code for anti lazy, stupid, criminal and unaccountable. Everything concerning race relations in this country is racism regarding blacks because no rational explanations could possibly exist. Blacks are disproportionately worthless and dangerous but it is always white oppression to blame. People can see the truth here and are tired of being blamed for others poor actions.
Accusations of racism from a guy with a name like Jamelle are as predictable as night follows day.
I reject his warped interpretation of reality and substitute my own...
Racism exists in all groups, but among whites it is considered a character defect. However, among other groups it is considered racial pride.
The main people causing problems in this area are those who irresponsibly accuse others of being racists. I am sick and tired of hearing my character impugned because I don’t subscribe to Marxism and hateful leftist politics. I reject their warped world view completely.
