    I don't think you can make a generalization about the whole nation about this that actually means something. I would bet whites are far more racist in the south, but some black community somewhere else might have more black racists, etc. And what about everyone else? The parents of all my Japanese friends are racist as heck, against everyone not Japanese (and by that I mean parents/grandparents of my friends who immigrated from Japan)

    I agree. It's individuals, but some people are claiming that if white people are racist, then they are backed by some imaginary government entity or something. As if we don't have hate crime laws which prosecute for such things, as if we don't have an ACLU, as if we didn't elect a black president.

    You know, the older I get the less I care about what people think of me. I find that most of the people screaming "Respect me", have done little if anything to earn it. Which generally means when they run into me and the likes of me they get a VERY rude awakening. I don't care if people think I am racist or not. I don't care what people call me. Only the people I care about get that consideration, and there are very few I care about. The rest can piss up a rope or whatever else catches their fancy. I could not care at all. I use all kinds of slurs liberally. If people don't like it, too bad. Blacks in this country are quite frankly in a lot of cases WAY to sensitive. It leads them being manipulated like puppets, because they are too busy worry about a puff of air passing though someone's lips. Whites are too sensitive about blacks perceptions of them, too busy worrying about what others would think of them. A lot of blacks have become racist bullys, and a lot of whites have become mewling pussies with no backbone. Both whites and blacks have basically made themselves into easily manipulated puppets, that can be played like hellbound harps. The only thing I can figure is they LIKE being played. Oh well their problem not mine.

    Not sure that's entirely true. Prejudice toward a society that is perceived as white-dominated discourages blacks from participating in it to the fullest extent possible. One of the reasons economic progress has been slower for them than other minorities.

    The sort of tenant housing you encounter in rundown inner city neighborhoods isn't as cheap as you'd think it should be given the dangers and limited opportunities characteristic of those neighborhoods. Blacks could leave those neighborhoods in much higher numbers than they do, which is usually a good step toward getting traction on economic progress.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    "Justified resentment"?

    I think you forgot our sarcasm tag.

    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.
    And yet, our history does hold some of this. I would be dishonest to deny it. And we still have people and places that deny employment, housing, and service due to race. This isn't all white people, to be sure, but it really doesn't happen the other way around.

    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.

    Are you saying that there are no black employers who may not hire white people? Doubtful.

    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

    that might have some truth but black on white violent crime is far higher than the other way around
