    I have not seen the evidence, however, many times numbers can be skewed to show a particular perspective as we all know. When I saw the word "lazy" I need that term qualified

    Do you want me to look up every quote by an American that said blacks are lazy? I googled it and there over 55,600,000 results. Please explain why you need that one word qualified.

    It is easy to call someone a name it is much more difficult to qualify the label.

    Why are Blacks, Hispanics and minorities considered lazy ? What it is that qualifies the word lazy in that regard.

    Well, since its called the "southern strategy" and it was designed to use blacks as scapegoats to get the white racist vote then perhaps labeling blacks as lazy and undeserving of handouts might be a stereo-type that white southerners could identify with.

    Below is a quote by an Oklahoma legislator who wanted to abolish affirmative action because she thinks blacks dont work as hard and have less inititive.....

    The Oklahoma House of Representatives has approved a proposed constitutional amendment that would eliminate Affirmative Action in state government.

    The proposed amendment passed by a vote of 59-14 Wednesday evening, with 28 members absent or not voting. It had already passed the Senate and will go to a vote of the people next year…

    Rep. Sally Kern, R-Oklahoma City, said minorities earn less than white people because they don’t work as hard and have less initiative.

    “We have a high percentage of blacks in prison, and that’s tragic, but are they in prison just because they are black or because they don’t want to study as hard in school? I’ve taught school, and I saw a lot of people of color who didn’t study hard because they said the government would take care of them.”

    Sally Kern thinks black people are lazy and don
    Here is a YT video discussing the above....

    Below is a poster on another forum who is referring to the black woman in the photo as a "lazy parasite".....

    I'd protest too if someone threatened my free ride! These lazy parasites on unemployment/disabilty/food stamps/medicaid should try working. If they actually paid taxes they would be protesting Obama's socialistic agenda.

    Hundreds Rally Outside Troy Marriott Before Romney Fundraiser Event - Rochester-Rochester Hills, MI Patch
    Here is Ken Melman who was Bush's campaign manager and chairman of the RNC in 2004 admitting that the GOP uses the "southern strategy" .....

    Following Bush's re-election, Ken Mehlman, Bush's campaign manager and Chairman of the RNC, held several large meetings with African-American business, community, and religious leaders. In his speeches, he apologized for his party's use of the Southern Strategy in the past. When asked about the strategy of using race as an issue to build GOP dominance in the once-Democratic South, Mehlman replied, "Republican candidates often have prospered by ignoring black voters and even by exploiting racial tensions," and, "by the '70s and into the '80s and '90s, the Democratic Party solidified its gains in the African-American community, and we Republicans did not effectively reach out. Some Republicans gave up on winning the African-American vote, looking the other way or trying to benefit politically from racial polarization. I am here today as the Republican chairman to tell you we were wrong."[39][40]
    Here is another quote suggesting the days of pandering to the white racist south are over because Obama got elected without them.....

    Merle Black, an expert on the region’s politics at Emory University in Atlanta, said the Republican Party went too far in appealing to the South, alienating voters elsewhere." .......
    Southern strategy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    But Romney is using the southern strategy to shore up the southern vote so it remains to be seen if those days are really over like the above "expert" suggests and it will all depend on if Obama can get re-elected without the south like he did in 2008. Neither Bill Clinton or Jimmy Carter would have won without the south, but then they were white southern boys.
