    Another poll shows that whites think they're the victims of racism now. Its a zero sum game for them. Which is odd considering that whites still have most of the power and control over the money and resources while the disparities for most Blacks in income, home ownership, health and employment is still just as bleak as it ever was.


    "....These data are the first to demonstrate that not only do whites think more progress has been made toward equality than do blacks, but whites also now believe that this progress is linked to a new inequality – at their expense," note Norton and Sommers. Whites see racial equality as a zero sum game, in which gains for one group mean losses for the other.

    The belief that anti-white bias is more prevalent than anti-black bias has clear implications for future public policy debates and behavioral science research, say the authors. They note that claims of so-called reverse racism, while not new, have been at the core of an increasing number of high-profile Supreme Court cases....read..."

    I am white. I have no power or control over any money or resources except mine own.

    INDIVIDUAL perception is what these people are basing this opinion on....... for... they are right. White people being in positions of power does not equal power for those other whites NOT in those positions of power, just like Obama being in power does not equal power for those other blacks not in Obama's position.

    It applies the same way.

    If those gains for one group due to race based policies like Affirmative Action and Grants specifically to businesses because the owner is black and for no other reason than that, then yes they are losses for the other.

    That is also true. There have been more and more court cases dealing with unfair practices where whites were on the receiving end of bad policy.


    Personally I think more and more lawsuits should come out until these race based policies that attempt, and yet still fail, to "even the playing field" are destroyed.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Out of those 200 black and 200 white people polled, both groups agreed that anti-black racism has decreased. Interesting, small sample though.

    And no, not in the historical numbers that has happened to blacks. Which, however, is irrelevant. The poll didn't ask who was more racist over the course of American history - it asked who was more racist today. The 1960s are immaterial to the discussion.


    Why would you think that the 1960s are immaterial to the discussion? Jim Crow was not that long ago---many, many people lived through that disgraceful period and that mindset is still quite prevalent in many areas.....Many southern schools still have two proms--one for whites and one for blacks......what does that say to you? There is such a thing as collective conscieneness which is almost genetic in nature....Stories passed from grandparents and parents that become the imbedded memory of a whole community, a whole race of people..... Unless your parents and grandparents had to sit at the back of the bus, drink out of a separate water fountains, lower your eyes when approaching a white person, count a jar full of marbles before you could vote---then how could you even imagine what a whole people have been through in this country.......and why there is a deep seated resentment and distrust of most white people......

    Is there a link to the actual study, you know, it details how they went about picking their samples, how they worded the questions, and related information which would be included in the actual study.

    You say, "MANY" southern schools still have two proms..

    Can you name me more than... one?


    And... just because there is deep seated resentment doesn't mean we have to put up with it. Its time to move..... FORWARD!

    Yes, segregation is, for most intents and purposes, illegal---(sigh). Where do you think the ghettos came from? why do most white people in Chicago live on the north side, and most of the black people live on the South side? Who do you think runs these thousands of small Southern towns?.

    Going deeper into the poll’s crosstabs shows that 49 percent of Republicans believe “most black Americans (are) racist,” roughly the same percentage of Democrats (47 percent) who said the opposite. A third of Republicans said most black Americans are not racist, while only 11 percent of the GOP said that most white people are racist. Fifty-eight percent of respondents identified as “very conservative” said most blacks are racist, while a plurality of 44 percent “somewhat conservative” respondents said the same.

    (snip)

    A study conducted by Fordham University rated Rasmussen as one of the least accurate pollsters of the 2012 election cycle.

    Do you agree?

    Yes
    No, Whites are the most racist
    No, They are the same
    I Don't Know



    According to the studies that I have read (And I have read lots of them.) Almost everyone on this planet is 'racist to some extent.

    What we are talking about here is favoring members of your group over members of other groups.

    Because the choice that people have.

    The freedom to choose where to live.

    The freedom to elect the leaders the people want.
