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

    http://www.blacktoptens.com/?p=1489

    Why is it the above list of African Americans were able to overcome these "disadvantages" where others cannot?

    My thoughts: they were willing to work harder and take on more risk to make it. They didn't give up when others would have.

    Something that seems to be a re occurring theme among millionaires of all races.

    Only two out of those ten did it completely outside of the entertainment industry. Do you think the same top ten list of white people would be primarily actors, musicians, and media folks? I certainly don't.

    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.

    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
    Well, this is Rasmussen. Aren't they still celebrating the election of John McCain?

    I suppose I would have to have a more pinpointed definition of the term racist in this context.

    Do more black people deny white people employment or advancement, than their white counterparts do? I don't think so.

    In a man's heart of hearts, does the black man despise the white man, more than the white man despises the black man? I do think so.

    I think, even though society is somewhat getting it right in regards to social sensitivity, regarding matters of race, I think that when a black man looks into the eye of a white man, a "white man," is the first thing he sees. Regardless of how positive the interaction may or may not be, the black man never loses site that he is dealing with a white men.

    And I think that when a white man looks into the eye of a black man, if he does at all, the first thing he sees is a "black man," and never loses sight of that, as well.

    But we have, as a society, been able to move beyond that for the most part. People have recognized the prejudices and have made conscientious efforts to address them in a positive way. But we still have a ways to go.

    Times seem to be getting a little better. But I do worry about our African American brother's and sister's. The things they are doing to each other. Their particular culture seems to be veering towards the negative. Not many positive contributions considering their populous proportions.



    What I am observing amongst the African American culture is the notion that racism can only pertain to white people. It's as if their thought patterns do not register that black people can be racist too.

    "Do you consider the term, "Creepy-Ass Cracker," to be racist?
    "No."
    That's just the way your culture refer's to white people?"
    "Yeah."
    You makes some very excellent points here. However, I will add that in order for both sides to get over racism, we have to get to know the individual, not what the media portrays that individual to be. From my experience it seems that the whites that tends to be more racist are the ones that never knew a black man or woman. The got to know black people by what they see in movies and the 10 o'clock news. This is also true for the other side of the isle. The most racist blacks I know have never talk to a white man or woman.

    Growing up in the inner city, I didn't know any whites except for my teachers at school. I always had this perception that all white were middle class and didn't have any financial burdens. I got this image from TV where you see the white TV families living in very nice neighborhoods in the valleys. Like white people travel to Narnia or something when they get off work and school.

    In college I had white friends from the midwest who said that they have never met a black guy before and that I didn't act like what they thought I would act like. As the years went by we became really good friends and I think that is what is missing in our society.

    What's missing is understanding and tolerance. People just need to lighten up.

    You make many good points as well. Great post.

    Again, speaking in general terms.

    When a white person sees an African American head bopping to a music they don't understand, pants nearly to the ground, they find it disqusting.

    When a white person sees, on the local news, the nightly shootings on or near your local "MLK" Blvd., if you will, they formulate the opinion that African American people are not culturally meant to be mixed in a civilized white society.

    When White America sees that 13.6 of the American population, (African Americans,) making up 40.2 percent of all prison inmates, their minds equate that to a criminal culture.

    When white American teachers, working in our inner city schools, speak with their white counterparts, teaching in predominantly white schools, it helps them form the opinion that African America students, by comparison, lack the discipline and respect usually taught in White American homes. Not to mention the student's lack of ability to learn the curriculum as successfully as the white students.

    The deal is, we have to be honest enough to admit that the two cultures are poles apart. It hurts me none when a young person, black or white, wears their pants down to their their knees. Why should it bother me then? (I remind myself of bell bottoms and mullets.)

    Yes, I think we should all just accept each other for what we all are, as long as we do no harm to others. Regardless of what music we like or clothes we wear. Just accept that people are different. They have different values and standards.

    Truth is, in my opinion, black people are more of a threat to other black people than they are to the white race. If anyone should be apprehensive about African Americans, it should be other African Americans.

    I am very blessed to have several African American friends. Sure, they are different from me. But they accept me for who I am and I do the same, in turn.

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

    It's not as if Will
    Smith or Ben Carson were to sit next to the average White American, that they would move because of racism.

    It is a specific group within the race. The counter culture that live their lives and glorify a culture that is not conducive to success.

    I think we have all seen the undercover shows where they send the "Thuggish" looking African American onto a bus, and even the other African Americans grip their purses a little tighter and take on a more defensive posture.

    It is not the color of their skin but the image they present.

    You think people don't do the same when their around Hells Angels or a group of Wannabe Nazis?

    Another good point.

    Due to the culture surrounding certain styles, walking around with saggy ass pants, long white t shirt with faux gold plated teeth and nasty ass hair and swearing every 5 seconds is about the equivalent of walking around with a ****ing Prison jumpsuit on.

    Would anyone blame another person for having raised concern about their safety if someone was walking around in a Prison jumpsuit complete with leg shackles?
