    That's not too hard to believe with all the Jessie Jacksons and Al Sharptons of the world.

    Yeah and the "disuniting of America" as Arthur Schlesinger Jr. put it, was largely overblown. To some extent it is intellectually true, by for the most part it is not. Most attempts at multiculturalism focused primarily in being inclusive, a more enthusiastic cultural pluralism, than the relativistic tribalism of some leftists.

    Okay. your cool cause yer all smart n' ****.

    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.

    The right-leaning polling firm Rasmussen Reports dove into America’s views of race on Wednesday with a bizarre survey that concluded most of the nation thinks blacks are more likely to be racist than whites.

    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
    Are we making a distinction between prejudice and racism? If we go by the sociology definition, blacks would have to have the power to systematically harm whites. That doesn't really exist.

    Also, how reliable should we see a poll?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    re: Rasmussen Poll Says Blacks Are More Racist Than Whites [W:358]

    I think it is a case that more blacks are race conscience, and any wrong they perceive done against by someone outside their demographic is attributed to skin pigmentation.

    To give an anecdote, Quite some time ago I had a job where my foreman was white, I am white and a fellow co-worker was black. This individual was lazy, he was a shifty fellow always trying to get out of the hard jobs and tried always to stick me with them. There were plenty of shifty, lazy white and latino workers at this job as well, just to cut off at the pass anyone thinking I am stereotyping.

    Well, this individual when our foreman demanded he take care of this particular task got indignant. Man, the fuss he made over it was actually quite unbelievable. Anyway, we had to perform a series of tasks together and then we were to split up. Him going to do this dreaded task and me to finally receive justice and go and perform a less strenuous job. To anyone who'd listen he'd scream of the injustice, he tried to negotiate, he tried to swindle, he tried almost everything to get out of this task and then, he came across a group of our fellow co workers who shared his race. He howled and cried, "Why do I have to do this and not him?" to a cacophony of nodding head of agreement and shouts of "Yeah, why is that?" They all looked at me with disdain. He said again with a look giving the "read between the lines" impression. "Why did that foreman give him the easier of two tasks while making me have to do the harder work" To more nods of agreement and calls of injustice "Eh, huh, why did she give him that job to do..."

    I quite literally had to walk away from the situation, it was beyond apparent what the inference was, and my only response was going to be "It's not cuz I'm white that she told me to do this and you do that it is because she see's your lazy ass always trying to get out of anything that resembles work!"

    Which as I'm sure you all can imagine would have opened up a whole new can of worms...

    I've experienced plenty of for instances like the above mentioned situation and others of a similar vein. I also know a lot of blacks that act nothing like that. Most of those being rather successful. So it would seem that there is a prevalent attitude that the less fortunate a group is the less likely they will see their own shortcomings and since their bad luck is inexplicable they see no other reason than race as the determining cause.

    Do-gooders, democrats and pulpit pimps have made it easy for the black community to convince themselves that this is the primary and almost exclusive cause of their misfortune.

    To me it boils down to one thing, not which side is "more racist," but which racist side has the power to quash the other side. Whites and non-whites may all be racists, but it's clear that whites in this global society, at this moment and in the recent past, and likely the foreseeable future, ... are the racists in power capable of doing harm to the rights, and lives, of whomever may justifiably or otherwise hate them.

    I think that's paranoid BS.

    Yeah, that's right, white people want to make black people into slaves and take away their rights. We just hate them because of the color of their skin. (Sarcasm for those not smart enough to figure it out on their own).

    I'm so sick and tired of hearing about this racist bullcrap. That post is racist against white people, accusatory and divisive.

    It's part of the culture wars of the 90s. If we were talking about the big ideas of the time, the Balkanization theory was popular, and figured most prominently in the arguments about our school system curricula best exemplified by the optional national history standards. As I said, the biggest fear was that we would be splintering into just ethnic, racial, other other statuses, and were unable to view ourselves as Americans. This was not the case.
