BUT, note this: "Lots of Republicans harbor prejudices, too, but the survey found they weren't voting against Obama because of his race. Most Republicans wouldn't vote for any Democrat for presidentwhite, black or brown."
This is really simple and you should not over think the issue.
If you are not black and vote against Obama you are a racist.
Accept it and move on.
It will save a lot of typing and free you up to read other material or get on with the household chores!
By the way, I have found nothing in the election laws that say I must vote for Obama because he is black.
(Well actually half white and maybe arab and muslim )
So, have a nice day now that you have come to grips with your inherent racism and move on to something productive.
If Odumbo’s people think Anglos are going to have black man remorse, wait until Hispanics get into the privacy of the voting booth. The PCgasm the radical left has worked up a lather for is going to be a fizzle, the big, political, anti climax of the century.
For the first time in my adult life I will be proud to be a white guy when Obama loses. sarcasm/
Isn’t this just another way of describing the “bradley effect”? Many here assume it has skewed the poll results and will pull this election out in the end. How does this disagree with that conventional wisdom?
I guess that if I buy some Jackson/Sharpton “Black Offset Credits” it would be ok to vote Republican.
Is it just my foreign ear, or does Obama play around with accents when he’s with Afro-Americans, becoming down-home “folksy”?
I haven’t voted Dimocratic since Carter, fool me one, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.
I have no bias against anyone for their race or ethnicity, I have extreme bias against any Dimocrat whether they are running for dog catcher or president.
I have serious misgivings about electing a president that hates me because of my color and thinks America should be damned. White liberals refuse to recognize racism by persons of color, so for them it’s a non-issue by definition; a deliberate blind spot.
Yes, they carefully avoid mentioning that significantly fewer Republicans are racists.
The more it looks like Obama might not win, the more we will all hear about racism. But nowhere in those commentaries will be the polls that show 95% of black Americans voting for Obama and against McCain. Is that not the racism we should be discussing?
I don’t think any racial misgivings would have been significant if Obamaand his Missus had not been such faithful folowers of Rev. Jeremiah Wright.. It’s as simple as that.
Conservatives wuopild never have voted for Obama; and it’s the liberals and independents who are now leary of voting for a man who appears to be a Chicago poitical thug.
BARRY BAMA IS A TERRORIST, A RACIST, A LIAR, A FINANGLER, A MONEY PIMP, AND A COMMUNIST....
there are plenty of reason why Barry should never be prez let alone a senator let alone dog catcher...and race ain't one of them...
I hope Deb Honeycutt wins in Georgia and I hope Micheal Steele runs again....there are super quality black people out there that don't need to be racist and communist.....they are just plain old good people....
I'm just a white republican, but does this mean I'm a racist too? I never knew I was a bigot, but I do consider almost all individuals responsible for their own troubles. So, to this author, I'm racist, a sexist, and otherwise prejudiced, as are all of us who think people can influence how their own lives turn out and thus that we are responsible for the things that don't go well.
A non-racist would vote for 0bama because he's black. I would have said that I'm voting against 0bama because he's far too liberal on domestic issues and too weak on foreign policy, that I'm letting issues take priority over race. Clearly, I'm in denial, and I'm not just voting against Obama for the same reasons I voted against Kerry and Gore. Race must be the hidden reason - the article tells us that much about typical white people like me. I'll just sit here clinging to guns and God in my bitterness, like most people in flyover country, not caring if I'm racist.
Nearly four in 10 white independents agreed that blacks would be better off if they "try harder."
Just how dumb are the other six out of ten? Almost everyone I know, including many of my best friends and family members would be better off if they tried harder. Does that apply to everyone except black people, and blacks need to just give up because they can't succeed? I am shocked that anyone would think it's racist to believe that a black person could do better but non-racist to say he can't improve his life. Stanford University has an interesting way of defining "racist".
