More Americans View Blacks As Racist Than Whites, Hispanics
Rasmussen Reports ^ | 07/03/13 | Scott Rasmussen

Posted on 07/03/2013 10:19:00 AM PDT by fwdude

Americans consider blacks more likely to be racist than whites and Hispanics in this country.

Thirty-seven percent (37%) of American Adults think most black Americans are racist, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Just 15% consider most white Americans racist, while 18% say the same of most Hispanic Americans.

It is noteworthy that most blacks see blacks as racist than whites too.

Oprah said blacks hate blacks of different shades. It is a tribal thing and their hatred of everyone spans centuries.

Blacks also hate blacks of different classes. The elitist blacks like Jesse Jackson are always glad to see whites walking behind them on the street.

What the survey doesn’t do is define the term “racist” to the respondents.

I would offer that non-blacks use the word in the classic, accurate sense, whereas ‘blacks’ are trained to skew the definition of “racism” to just about everything they don’t like to see or hear.

*IF* Rasmussen HAD said, “defining racism/racist as _______, how would you rate ....” then the study would be FAR more relevant.

If only 15% of America considers whites to be racist, that is an EPIC EPIC EPIC FAIL! for our Mainstream Media.

Something to be thankful for this Independence Day.

Yes, but racist blacks are proud of it, and can be openly racist. What happened to the jackazz who called for the death of white babies, before national media? That’s right-nothing. It’s strange that no one takes these threats seriously, considering crime statistics. Or maybe they do, and that’s the point.

How many people have ever heard of the “Zebra Killings” serial murders perpetrated by the Black Panthers, and “scored”? From lower to higher points-white males, white females, white children.

It’s this tribal thing that keeps them murdering each other at record numbers. 93% of blacks murdered are murdered by other blacks. The EPIDEMIC IS THEMSELVES, NOT WHITEY.

Whitey ain’t pulling the trigger. Anything to distract off the real problem. They don’t want to admit it and admit they themselves are their own worst enemy, because that means they have to own the problem, and that means they have to solve the problem. Nobody else can fix a black problem except the blacks.

Nobody forces them to admit the real problem and stop continually blaming everyone and everything else for their situations.

I never met racism in person until having a black housemate in school. Used the N word as often as he used nouns in sentences, and accused every white person of being a N-——. The most unapologetically bigoted hater I ever met.

Among liberal voters, 27% see most white Americans as racist, and 21% say the same about black Americans.

Among black Americans, 31% think most blacks are racist, while 24% consider most whites racist and 15% view most Hispanics that way.

------------------------

Ha! Ha! Says it all. Black people are more willing to accept and state uncomfortable truths about the black community than white Liberals are. White Liberals cannot bring themselves to say anything negative about black pathologies no matter how true the statement may be.

“More Americans View Blacks As Racist Than Whites, Hispanics”

Shazamm. So the lame stream media blackout of black and Hispanic racism, and promotion of propaganda that says only whites are racist, isn't indoctrinating everyone?

I think the majority of blacks are sick of the crap the minority pulls. They are just cowed into not speaking up.

Exhibit A: Who wants to be the first to finger the drug gangs in their neighborhood?

Exhibit B: Who wants to go on TV and denounce the way the feral youth is acting?

etc.

Blacks are more racist than anyone else.

I can prove it by asking a simple question: Which group is most responsible for calling black people ‘niggers’ in this day and age?

That’s right; black people.

Watch TV these days, every commercial and or sitcom shows the whites as buffoons, crackers, idiots, cavemen and incompetents, Blacks especially attractive looking black women with loosely tousled curls are stylish, intelligent, worldly, nuanced and trendy. I had a liberal friend try and defend it first by calling me a racist and then some weak logic that Blacks have significant buying power. I pointed out that the population is 14% black with only 1/2 of those with any significant consumer power to buy things above foodstuffs and cigarettes, so why all the TV commercials with the shiny black faces? Its corporate American kowtowing the criminal left, trying to buy favor with Obama and his racist functionaries. this article is a “No duh”. Look at the Zimmerman trial, the blacks think this guy should be lynched before a trial, watch HLN if you can stand it. Liberal blacks and their sycophants are a clear and present danger here in America, racist, corrupt and well with a big chip.

Most people make POST judgements, which allows them to learn from lessons learned...by post judging you create better response skills based upon your judgement...however to PRE judge a situation, you rely on post judgements through out your life, assemble the facts, reference your strategies and prepare your self before a situation arises

Prejudge is to be proactive
Post judge is to be reactive

Smart people are generally proactive and try to control areas in their life based on previous experiences....

Sadly, the left, the government, public schools, Hollywood, the MSM and useful idiots like Sharpton are actively promoting the ideas that white racism (whether real, perceived, exaggerated or fabricated) is the ultimate crime against humanity, while black racism is appropriate and, in fact, an essential part of being authentically “black”.

Given all this, I am actually amazed at the large percentage of black Americans who are NOT racist. They are bombarded continually with the idea that something is wrong with them if they are not racist. It takes a high character content to resist all the brainwashing.

Rasmussen sounds like he wants to fan the flames of a race war. It's not about who actually is racist, but who thinks who is racist, which of course is silly and useless information unless your only objective is to start something.

Bingo.

My husband, mother and I went to Kenya while husband was working in the middle east. (Mother visited because my sister had passed away quite suddenly that March and mother didn't want to spend that Christmas at home. So she came to visit us.)
I suffered quite a shock. I thought that "black" African people were like African-Americans, sort of cafe au lait in color. Not so. Africans in Kenya, as least, are EBONY, BLACK as in opposite of white. Wow.

For a bonus, there was an American couple there with the group..."African Americans" to be specific. They looked befuddled because THEY looked white compared to the natives. I never REALIZED how dark "black" was, having lived with the mixed-color of African-Americans all my life.

Live and learn.

And they would be right. Many blacks have evolved from “victim” class mentality to “entitled” class mentality where they expect to be given everything they want from those of us who produce ... in effect making us their slaves

I can identify with that. My first encounter with racism was when I joined the Army at 18 in basic. Young black kids from Chicago that were drafted.

One thing I noticed was the Army placed Black kids in lower skilled MOS’s as a result of aptitude testing (not color). Another observation was they tended to be in more trouble. When I went home on leave and told this to my father, he gave an evolutionary sort of reply by saying noticed this too and thought of it as Africans having not genetically advanced along with Europeans and Orientals. This sorta fits in with the tribal theory discussed here.

Blacks lack impulse control....

They don’t think before they act...they just follow deep primal instincts...

Watch one black mothers beating on their kids in public, watch loud mouth blacks screaming and cussing each other in public venues, the black on black crimes, murders...indifference to following rules, doing school work, not getting knocked up before 18, having several babies before 21, having multiple baby daddies...high incarceration rates among young lack males...all traced back to the lack of impulse control...which is needed to contribute to a civil society.

All blacks KNOW that their “stereotypical behavior that they condone and practice” is behavior that is shunned by YT...therefore to continue with unacceptable behavior you MUST declare anyone who disapproves as being a racist or worst a Uncle Tom....(poor Bill Cosby found out).

Asians on the other hand have the highest impulse control,, look at their lifestyle in comparison

I found that out in the military way back in the fifties.

The “N” word was often used among them to describe each other and the worst description of another black was a “bluegum”. That was apparently the bottom of the “N” pile.
