Skip to comments.AP poll: Majority harbor prejudice against blacks
Posted on 10/27/2012 4:22:20 AM PDT by John W
Racial attitudes have not improved in the four years since the United States elected its first black president, an Associated Press poll finds, as a slight majority of Americans now express prejudice toward blacks whether they recognize those feelings or not.
Those views could cost President Barack Obama votes as he tries for re-election, the survey found, though the effects are mitigated by some Americans' more favorable views of blacks.
Racial prejudice has increased slightly since 2008 whether those feelings were measured using questions that explicitly asked respondents about racist attitudes, or through an experimental test that measured implicit views toward race without asking questions about that topic directly.
In all, 51 percent of Americans now express explicit anti-black attitudes, compared with 48 percent in a similar 2008 survey.

racists, racists, racists, racists, racists... oh and we’re all racists..
AP/NBC nuff sed
The Race Card!
This story. ABC Nighttime has a story on the KKK (all 17 members).
Several other stories on ‘not enough whites voting for Obama.”
Must be time to elicit white guilt to help Obama...
MSM plays the Race Card TM.
Trying to gin up white guilt to pressure America into re-electing AA Obama!
Reminded me of those stories that would roll out whenever Clinton needed some rationalization, Thomas Jefferson was doing the slaves and so forth.
I never even considered myself racist, even slightly, until this administration got away with evil deeds, and anytime someone tried to flag the operations the term was used...RACISTS. Now, maybe I am racist, but only towards Kenyans.
Ohhh here we go....
The cleaver rats and thier news media comrades knew exactly what they had in Obama
Interesting timing for this “poll”.
A lot of whites were waiting for Obama to start sounding like Doctor Martin Luther King JUNIOR, and tell his people that violence is wrong and to work with whites as one community, but that never happened. Instead we dark-skinned version of a KKK leader.
It’s pretty hard to expect much from whites, if the best the black community can provide is Obama.
Affirmative Action and constant over play of the Race Card will do that every time.
You just knew this was coming. Same Racists elected Obama in 2008.
It’s hard to see the good in people when they act like thugs.... Just sayin’.
So we're 'racist'- we just don't know it!
NBC 'news' is full of brainless socialist wankers.......whether they recognize their ignorance or not.
The internals don’t break out the ratio of prejudice towards blacks, versus black communists.
I believe that Blacks were included in this survey. LOL!
I Never thought about race prior to obammy.
Now I am a racist, homophobe, islamophobe, etc.
I will NEVER again see a person of color in a position of authority without thinking , quota boy?
Have they done a study of black racism? I imagine it is off the charts.
“whether those feelings were measured using questions that explicitly asked respondents about racist attitudes, or through an experimental test that measured implicit views toward race without asking questions about that topic directly. “
What? Trick questions?
Did they ask blacks the same questions?
Actually, I’m frustrated with people who use race, sex or ethicity as a reason not to hold those in positions of responsibility to account. For fear of EEO charges or being publicly ridiculed by the PC brigade. The military is being greatly damaged by this. Look at the behavior of Casey, Dempsey and now even Petraeus.
According to the majority of the media and the left, Obama should be held to a lesser standard because he is black. That is the attitude that is actually racist.
What do you call it when 95% of blacks vote for Obama?
I didn’t either Joe, I thought we were all past that, and it certainly wasn’t the color of ones skin, but I sure have a lesser opinion of them based on their actions and attitudes the last four years.
Just being honest.
Did they interview a random sample of 100 blacks, 95 percent of whom are likely to vote for Obama? Did they ask those blacks exactly why they are voting for Obama?
Come on, liberal media, do your job!
Chickens voting for Colonel Sanders.
I agree, I was doing some reading up on Petraeus last night, can you say submission?
If you held no bias regarding negroes before the advent of Zero, his conduct has been enough to create a bias in the most pure of hearts.
The poll is totally useless as an indicator because it’s an Internet poll and ass such open to manipulation.
That aside I couldn’t find anything regarding the demographics. In any case it is no surprise given then total predictability of the media that this this nonsense would come out.
I cannot speak for others but for myself I can say there was a rime I would make an effort to defend myself against a suggestion I was a racist because I abhorred this president, what he stood for and the method he used in getting his way. No longer, now suggestions of my feelings being racist in nature are met with the equivalent of a hale and hearty GFY.
And, the study that blacks are racist? Where is that?
We know blacks overwhelmingly vote for blacks .... yet whites vote for Obama. Blacks are more racist IMO.
In all, 100 percent of MSM now express explicit mentally ill attitudes.
So, whoever is doing the study can make it say whatever they want.... kinda like Global Warming/Climate Change or any Democratic district, huh?
Oh, and for the record, I don't like Marxist, Mooslim, Constitution Violating Kenyans - regardless of his Heinz 57 status.
LOL John, The first time I was called a racist because I disagreed with Obama I was shocked, and yes, I too felt I had to defend myself, I completely understand.
Truthfully, I believe many Americans are pretty sick and tired of this BS,
I also believe they intended to use the race card from the beginning, to silence people.
Last ditch effort. Not gonna work this time.
I am a racist. I am a sexist. I am a religionist. I am a linguicist. I am a cutlurist.
I treat women differently than I treat men. I treat people that talk differently than me differently than those that talk like me.
I used to be in sales. A person who is all of the above and learns to skillfully communicate uniquely to each will do MUCH better than a person who blindly treats all people exactly the same. Sex, race, vocabulary, dialect, manner of dress and attitude ALL impact how I treat a person.
And there is a reason, after certain crimes are reported, that people her sarcastically say, “Looks like the Amish are at it again.”
Ultimately, it all boils down to culture and subculture. Anyone that tries to ignore that is in for a very difficult life.
Especially after 4 long years with this bozo in the white house
I live in the inner city, a once beautiful neighborhood, most of my neighbors are black, and so far we get along fine.
The thing is a lot of the people I know moved away, you know, those white guilt Obama supporters, I know why they moved away, they don’t even like to come and visit, they moved away to the suburbs, because they didn’t like the change in the neighborhoods,
These same people write articles such as the one in the opening post,
Who is the racist?
What do u call it when 98% of the blacks refuse to vote for the white guy???
Whether something is “implicitly” racist is a matter of interpretation, and I would not trust the agenda driven leftist grievance mongers to interpret such things fairly. Thus I discount this entire exercise. I know what real racism is, having heard rather naked disparagement of different races from those in my grandparents’ generation, but that kind of stuff is not to be compared with the silly things that he left calls racist today.
If your poll were true... you could find all of this right wing hate... but you cannot because it does not exist. Racism is alive and well in the black community... that is where you will find it... and at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue... there is plenty to be found there.
Oh sure.....when he loses, the Left will insist it’s because we are racists, not because he is a Communist. They will never believe it’s because we still want to have the liberty that many better men than Obummer died for in our past.
“Experience” is not a “prejudice.”
America was growing steadily more colorblind until Obama. Noow it’s almost at race war. Instigated by Obama. Makes Stormfront look like amateur children.
Yes - and blacks just love whitey!
blah, blah, blah
‘.......WHETHER THEY RECOGNIZE THOSE FEELINGS OR NOT...”
I am never going to respect the so called men who father children they never intend to take care of.
NO; it’s not “prejudice” against blacks. It’s recognization of the FACTS of what blacks have become, due to their constant “Victimization” appeasement by Democrats, and USING THEM as a tool for Votes.
Obama has failed.
