“Americans now express prejudice toward blacks whether they recognize those feelings or not.”

I only dislike blacks who act like white trash or Democraps.

96% of blacks voted against McCain, a white man, in 2008. Systemic racism!

I too felt I had to defend myself

And that's where we go wrong - we should be going on the offense:

"Really? That's interesting. So...how exactly am I a racist?"

Start putting the accusers on the defensive, keep questioning them to define their accusations. And it's fun to see them get all flustered and angry when they can't even logically support their own position.

“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.”
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^”

Translation: Obama lost because whites are racists.

All races perform a self protective personal profiling assessment of individuals that enter “their space”. It’s part of that be aware of your surroundings thing.

Let us further be aware that young black men are known to play the “knock out” game on unsuspecting whites. White guys with prison tattoos are to be avoided like the plague. Grungy people are a greater potential for problems. Kids should not help the stranger look for the puppy. And Asians of any sex can’t drive and one should drive defensively when they are present.

All healthy defenses that will prolong your life. No guilt.

Whites in America elected a half-black President four years ago - and now we are racists. FUAP. You are clueless. People are getting sick of this tired old diatribe, and it will have the opposite effect from that which you intend. Crap like this will push people to get rid of the current racist occupant of the White House.

If 98 percent of the white population voted for the white candidate in 2008 we’d have seen years of stories about “racism” in America over the past four years.

But when 98 percent of blacks vote for the black candidate, the MSM ignores the racial (racist) component of the vote entirely.

So much for their “concern” about racism...

“Preparation for 11/7”

You beat me to it. The Lames see the writing on the wall, so they are setting up the meme that Zero lost due to racism. “Our +9D polls were not wrong! The Bradley effect was why the result didn’t match the polls.”

At the same time, they are desperately hoping they can stir up some white guilt to vote for Zero a second time. Hopefully, this will not work this time.

The survey questions asked respondents whether they agreed or disagreed with a series of statements about blacks and Hispanics. The survey also included questions posed and reactions noted after a series of photos of blacks, Hispanics and white males were flashed on a screen......blah, blah, blah, blah.

Funny how we never get to see a detailed list of the questions posed....nor are we able to view the photos involved.....we get to see only the "results" which are always cunningly presented and enveloped in an aura of "fact", holy scripture and superiority.

People buy into these racist psychobabble crap "surveys" and never even think to question the results or question the questioners themselves (who are generally left-wing academics, psychologists, professional feeders off the racial i$$ue indu$try plus limp-wristed liberal nerds and metrosexuals who infest social justice organizations).

As a group blacks are more likely to commit crimes, be on public assistance, be unemployed,far more likely to have children out of wedlock, and in general engage in antisocial behavior. If one recognizes these facts, I suppose that makes one a racist.

OTOH, you can be aware of facts, and still cling to the outmoded and abhorrent practice of treating people as individuals rather than as the embodiment of racial, ethnic, gender and class stereotypes.

“What? Trick questions?”

Survey questions:

Have you ever ridden in a pickup truck?

Do you believe that Blacks eat watermelon?

...............................Fried Chicken?

Do you have any white sheets in your linen closet?

Can you spell “Dixie”?

Can you hum a few bars of Dixie?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, then you DEFINITELY harbor !!RACIST!!, Racist!, racist attitudes.

I love to read the comments on this type of story and as usual they all run along the same line, why are the anti-white actions of blacks never brought up as racist.

And then I post this, although I dont agree with these people who play the race card - to them because whites are the majority and blacks are a minority the blacks can never be tagged as racist because of their minority status.

Its just the way they think - and yes it is racist! lol.

Whites are going to be voting for Romney is quite higher percentages compared to McCain with the greatest increases being in white women. Whites figure if blacks are going to back their awful black candidate to the hilt then we will go opposite to get rid of his incompetence. Blacks are only 11% of the population. No way do they get to call the shots but with all the cries of racism by blacks (and white liberals) designed to bully and intimidate, you would think their political pull is that of a group with 33% of the population

My maid of honour and my flower girl were black.The teenage boy that babysat for my children was black. I attended a majority black church with my children about 25 years ago. Unfortunately I started to notice a difference in the attitude of many of the younger generation. They were becoming resentful,angry, lashing out at injustice real or imagined. I found myself pulling away from relationships, in essence segregating myself. I always look at the comedienne Nell Carter as the beginning of the change in attitude. She was a nasty piece of work. Everyone laughed at her biting language that has now become ingrained into our society. Maybe I give her too much credit but the change started long before Obama.

Oy, not this sh*t already!

Here’s the deal, MSM: like many mediocre pols Obama got elected (in part) because he is black, but he will not be rejected for reelection (to ANY extent) because he is black.

It will be wholly and entirely because he is a miserable failure.

Deal. with. it.

Just scanned through the article, could not find a single reference to what they counted as racial prejudice. The key phrase is their statement we harbor anti-black sentiments even if we are not aware of them!

Guarantee it includes fact based questions like, do blacks commit more crime, etc.

“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?”

My sentiments are very similar to yours. obama has brought to the forefront reasons for non-Blacks to question Blacks authority, and for persons of any color to hate faggots and realize Islam is a radical hate filled religion.

Oh sure.....when he loses, the Left will insist it’s because we are racists, not because he is a Communist.

Correct.

In the end, Obama is not that important. He will be dismissed as incompetent.

The cause, socialism, will not have failed.

They will never understand that it is about the person himself or herself, not about the color of their skin. It is about voting in the right person not the wrong person. To clarify it for them I suppose we could say when voting for a black person for president, it is about voting for the right black person not the wrong black person for president, the latter being what they did. They saw an (supposedly) articulate black person and never questioned his experience, who he is or what he actually stand for. Rather then being color blind and judging Obama on the content of his character, they were blinded by his color and unable to clearing see who this man is. I voted for Alan Keyes in one election and I would have voted for Herman Caine this time if he were the candidate. I would never vote for a communist, muslim sympathizer to be president of the USA and this is what Obama is. If he is re-elected, be scared, very scared for the war in this country will eventually begin. There are militant muslim (redundant term isn’t it?) in this country and they are most likely Obama’s secret army that will attack when his handlers say it is time to destroy us all. I know I sound paranoid, yet on Sept 10th if someone told me they thought something like “911” would happen, I would have said it was something I feared. Of course they would have described it not call it 911. But you get my drift. I suspect that there are powerful wealthy foreign forces at work in all of this. When Romney wins, he needs to not only clean house, but disinfect it.

Obama is the only anti-black person I can point to. He has successfully barred any black person from the position of President for at least a generation due to his ineptness, ideology and incompetence. I hate to say that because Herman Caine, Col. West and Allen Keys should have had a chance at it.

Racism is what put Obama in the White House in the first place. He won in 2008 for one primary reason - his color. What other characteristics does the man have that make him suitable for the job?

I long for the day when a man is judged not by the color of his skin, but by the nature of his character.

They're flopping around like a fish out of water trying to figure out which of the usual emotional triggers will work. The media is desperate because no matter what sort of propaganda they publish and call a poll, the real numbers are telling them that an awful lot of people who voted for Barry in ‘08 are sitting this one out. Those former supporters are not bothering to vote this time because they’re so disappointed in Barry and wondering why they fell for his shuck and jive in the first place.

It won't work, though. Four and five dollar gasoline relieves an awful lot of frail guilt and replace it with very robust anger.
