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?
