Posted on 07/06/2013 7:08:40 AM PDT by NotYourAverageDhimmi
When Rasmussen Reports asked some of its polling subjects to conduct an odd exercise in racial stereotyping, the results were counterintuitive, or at least counterstereotypical:
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.
Before we dig deeper into the poll's findings, let's note an enormous caveat: The word "racist" has multiple meanings. Merriam-Webster lists two: "1: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race," and "2: racial prejudice or discrimination."
A prime reason talk about "racism" tends to be more inflammatory than enlightening is the elision of the very large difference between these two definitions. Thus: The Tea Party opposes the policies of Barack Obama, who is black. Some Tea Party members have said things that offend the racial sensibilities of left-leaning Americans. Thus, the lefties conclude, the Tea Party is driven by prejudice--it is, according to them, "racist" (by definition 2). In the left's imagination, that puts the Tea Party in the same category as the Ku Klux Klan, even though the Klan indisputably was racist by definition 1.
To put it more concisely, much of the "dialogue" about race in America today consists of equating dubiously imputed racial prejudice with white supremacy.

I am. I hate all races equally.
People piss me off.
Beat me to it and I hate you for it.
There’s no racism without race...so every race must be somewhat “racist”.
Its a sphincteratti conspiracy.
So if this is true (and I believe it is) why do black Americans not do something about it? Why do the race hustlers get a free pass? Why do they not speak up when the race card is played?
What are they afraid of?
Beat me to it... I hate you !....:o)
Damn ...you too !...:o)
Who riots the most?.
IMO ....They profit from it ....
..They profit from it ..
If that’s true, and it certainly may be, then honest hardworking people should be disgusted.
Those stinking Eskimos!
Yes, my misanthropy is often mistaken for racism, sexism, male chauvinism, bigotry, and homophobia. People like to think they are special.
Ask around, I’m an ass.
I’ve singled out Norwegians because I’m sick of those herring shuckers always getting a pass.
A round what ?
At least yer a smart one... Stay safe !
Yep darn ice backs.
They are a bunch of SOB’s.

LOL polar gooks.
Indeed - people who suggest that race means nothing are as bad as those that say race is everything.
Every race is racial because feeling a bond toward your race and looking out for your race's interests is natural no matter how much people scream otherwise. The only thing is that when non-white races look after their interests it is considered positive and uplifting. Yet, when white people get together in even a non-threatening manner the self-described anti-racists scream and cry about evil whites having a collective identity.
My favorite new racial slur. :)
I hate you for being a duplicator. There, I said it. :~)
The world I grew up in accepted many “colorful” descriptive terms. They weren’t used to harm and were often used as terms of endearment.
Gran Torino barbershop scene.
LMAO! “Herring shuckers”! That’s too funny.
BTW, half my extended family are of Norwegian heritage. With a few exceptions, they are a bunch of big, dumb liberal Oles.
According to liberals only whites can be racist. Latinos sporting tattoos of La Raza (the Race) are not bigots and Blacks attacking creepy crackers simply because they are white is not a hate crime. Muslim and Black preachers can spew antisemitism, but Christian preachers reiterating their faith’s traditional opposition to homosexuality are hate mongers.
Your post reminds me of one of the Flight of the Conchords episodes where the two main characters, both from New Zealand, face major discrimination from a fruit vendor who won't sell fruit to people from New Zealand. The episode features the song, “”Albi, the Racist Dragon”.
If I admit I’m a racist then can we talk about my disagreements with Obama on principles?
Not how it works for white liberals. The rules are as follows:
1) If you are not liberal, you are racist.
2) Since you are racist, your opinions on everything are worthless.
3) If you become liberal, you have "evolved" and better than the racists who are not liberal.
4) Since you are liberal, and no longer racists, your opinions on everything are superior.
