Posted on 05/15/2011 2:17:10 PM PDT by reaganaut1
Both white Americans and black Americans perceive significant progress in the fight against anti-black bias, but white Americans believe the progress has come at their expense, a new survey finds.
The researchers contacted a random national sample of 209 whites and 208 blacks, and asked them how much discrimination each group faced, on a scale of one to ten, for each decade since the 1950s.
Black Americans saw anti-black bias as declining steadily, from 9.7 in the 50s to 6.1 in the 00s. Over the same period, they perceived a small increase in anti-white bias, from 1.4 to 1.8.
White Americans saw an even steeper decline in anti-black bias: from 9.1, in the 50s, to 3.6, in the 00s. But more striking, according to the researchers, was the sharp increase in perceived anti-white bias: Among whites, it shot up from 1.8 to 4.7.
White Americans, in short, thought that anti-white bias was a greater societal problem by the 00s than anti-black bias.
The researchers described the patternwhich did not vary markedly with regard to age or education levelsas evidence that white Americans see race relations as a zero-sum game, in which one groups gains must be offset by anothers loss.

What is the point of “surveys” like this? To foster more mistrust between the races? Who benefits from this?
two words come to mind, eric holder.
Life is just always like that.
Yeah, zero sum game. How ‘bout a game played by zer0 and his minions...?
The presumption that whites see race as a zero-sum game is ludicrous. The proper analysis is that people bending over backwards to provide preference to blacks has naturally resulted in pushing some deserving whites to one side.
My father was denied a promotion so that a politically correct black woman could be chosen. He had previously handled much larger offices, but they couldn’t even keep her on the job for long.
The reality is that making decisions based on racial preferences IS a zero sum game. Making hiring decisions based on merit is the only fair system.
It is not bias, it is negro racism that infects the population
>> What is the point of surveys like this? To foster more mistrust between the races? Who benefits from this?
Affirmative action, Political Correctness, and Hate Crime laws foster mistrust and racial abuse. Reporting the reaction to such engineered racism is a good thing.
Or two more words oval office.
If whites sees bias as a zero sum game it’s because leftists pushed to impose a legal framework that guaranteed it would be a zero sum game. The Communists do not believe all people can advance together. Now, something must be taken from one group and given to another — redistribution. They bastards love it so. We all have to pay for their economic, social and political insanity.
Aside: What kind of "national survey" uses 400 people?
Indeed. It will take being vocal and standing up. Otherwise they will continue to cram it down our throats. It will NEVER stop unless we make it stop.
thats for sure
thats for sure
But surely you realize that ol’ Zimbabwe Zero is doing his job of advancing anti-colonialist affirmative action fascism. All property belongs to a black and leftist dominated government elected by “feel good” guilt assuagement, don’t you understand? God asks for 10%; Zimbabwe Zero feels that he is being generous if he leaves you 10%.
