WASHINGTON (AP) 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.

An unspoken truth is that 95 percent of racial prejudice is really cultural prejudice.

The Race Card TM.

Its all about those white racists who want to kick Obama out of because of his skin color!

Let’s hear the liberal excuses for his defeat coming.

Maybe peole are just tired of the constant playing of the race card this last four years. They forget who got him eleced in 08 so they only have themselves to blame. This administration has done more to divide this nation than anyone else in the last 200 plus years.

If a vote for Romney is considered racist, then, indeed, I hope “racism” causes Obama to lose.

If you are white, ask yourself “Do I feel safer on an urban city street than I did four years ago?” If you do, vote your guilt; otherwise, use your eyes and vote for the guy who isn’t a racist.

I totally agree, Obama's racism will cost him votes.

Yeah The Unifier really did a bang-up job, didn’t he?

But his failures are all white peoples’ fault.

Ya, it's so clear, what with White on Black violence and such, i.e. "knock-out" games played by troupes of Whites on unsuspecting Blacks; White flash mobs marauding shopping areas, shop lifting and vandalizing as they go; White mob violence or intimidation of Blacks; Whites standing in front of voting areas with batons dressed in white hoods and military style clothing... "Ya, I'm wid-ya-on-dat-brutha"

Here I was thinking Obama closed a chapter in our country’s history? No such thing.

The Left will be perpetually affronted and its useless to convince them that - uh - people might just have legitimate reasons for wanting to dump Obama.

Not everything in this country is about race.

After seeing how Obama and his wife have behaved and how Holder has run things in the Just-us department. After seeing the last couple of summers of “beat whitey” attacks and having blacks getting in our faces if we don’t surrender to their “entitlement” mentality, I must confess that I am more racist against blacks than I was before Obama took office.

It’s just like I became more anti-liberal after 8 years of Bill Clinton.

Having something shoved in your face over and over will usually turn you against it.

The gaystopo is doing the same to me. I’m very anti-gay now.

Re" ...whether they recognize those feelings or not.

That tells you what BS this is--

I tell ya, Pimp with a Limp, I hate all those religious, gun clinging white folks... but I may not recognize those feeling!

You hear that, our President's words... are like butter--

That's the way, Barack, surely God made them white like sheep... because he expects us to shear them all for our fair share.

I don't mean to be racist, but stop... calling me 'Shirley!'

Shirley? I thought... your name was Larry--

Well, campers, I would have been back sooner, but Hurricane Sandy delayed me... by trapping me in that Pirates of the Caribbean casino with all those willing showgals--

Oh for Heaven’s sake! You’re angry because people don’t like you? Tough. Get over this stupid viewpoint and get to work.

Black folk have been voting for Democrats since FDR - and they’re still poor!

Hello! Hello! Anyone notice a trend here?

Phew. Feel better now.

Here's my bottom line on this meme...

Barack Obama would not have won without the white vote...

The whites who voted for him knew he was black when they voted...

His attitude and arrogance has spread amongst his ardent supporters...

The "you owe me" attitude has become dominant as entitlements go out of control...

Summary: The past 50 years of people learning to live together has been destroyed in less than four years by the bigot in the White House.

Now we have to start over...maybe.

Yes, "racism" will cost obama votes...but it's HIS racism, not white America's. They actually hate him more for being a racist, than for being black.

In their world a vote for Cain or Mia Love is an act of racism. These people have lost their minds.

Millions of white voters who voted for Obama in 2008 are not voting for him in 2012.

The question is, did they all become racist over the past four years or did they just notice that Obama is black?

Not only is the race card a number one tool for obama and co-conspirators (which includes the MSM), but it’s their fall back plan if he loses Nov 6th.

If he loses, there could be hard core action such as riots, vandalism, murder and maybe even taking over local government buildings by the hard core left and Blacks that have become the left’s useful idiots - absolute anarchy in large cities.

I have a feeling he will do whatever it takes to damage this country for he has no conscience and he knows he will never be held accountable for anything (including Benghazi) because he is Black. And some how or another the MSM and regime will spin it as the white guys fault.

That's worth repeating, my feeling exactly. We have just had enough, after so long a time over and over with the racist card, they have got on our LAST NERVE.

Their only weapon is FEAR, we/I will no longer listen to them. I will not tolerate one of my tenants attempting to pull some racist card and try to scare me. Ain't happening.

Those who live by the sword of racism shall die by that sword. If an administration makes race-based decisions, instead of race-neutral decisions, then the rest of the country will respond accordingly.

“95 percent of racial prejudice is really cultural prejudice”

I wouldn’t know about the exact percentage, but you are right. Judging on the basis of racial characteristics is supposed to be wrong purely and simply, and I suppose it is to a certain degree. But our PC cops pretend as if racism is all biological essentialism, and since that is scientifically incorrect racism must be incotrect. They harp a lot about the miniscule genetic difference between the races, or the outright biological nonexistence of certain racial classifications. It was never all about genes. Psuedo-scientific racism exploded in the 19th century, culminating in the evil of eugenics. But racism long, long, long predates scientific justification.

Whether you’re saying black people’s brains are smaller or Kenyans are more likely to be good marathoners you’re being racist. Goodie-goodies like to pretend it’s all irrational like the former, and deny the very obvious usefulness of generalizing on the basis of appearance. Because appearance connotes certain things, among them that certain groups are by and large better or worse at certain activities than others. I trust I don’t need to post many examples. We all know what I’m talking about, though we’re no longer supposed to admit it.

Not that I blame them altogether. There are real dangers to overgeneralization, and mankind needs no incentives, certainly, to reason falsely from appearance. But as an author I read once put it, they pretend as if admitting there’s any rational basis to racism is a step away from loading the ovens. Which is crazy.

“Racism Could Cost Obama Votes.”

So African-Americans are not going to vote for Barry because he’s half white?

Ironically, racism guarantees him more then 95% of the black vote.

Even if this fantasy were true, it would at least balance the racism that got him the presidency.

Since when did a—holes become a race?

I used that on someone who recently played the card on me. A horrified deer-in-headlights reaction.

Obama could lose 5 percentage points off his share of the popular vote in his Nov. 6 contest against Republican challenger Mitt Romney. But Obama also stands to benefit from a 3 percentage point gain due to pro-Black sentiment,

Seriously, does this influence anyone but a hard core liberal. It's "racist" if it costs Obama votes but "pro-Black" if he gains votes. I really hate these idiots.
