    I've been denied service due to my race and threatened for being in the housing I was in for the same.

    Disclaimer: Speaking in the most general of terms. And speaking from only opinion.


    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."

    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.

    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, I don't agree, but when white people are still the most dominant group in the country and when the poll is by a conservative organization, I wouldn't expect the poll to be any different.

    The fact is that any animosity black people feel towards white people is not based in racism, but in frustration with the way that a white dominated society has treated them. There are a lot of white people - particularly conservative white people - who don't get that. They are narcissistic and in denial about what racism really is and about their own role in maintaining it. Even further, they resent the fact that black Americans among other non-whites have dared to aggressively call them out on their racist bull**** and have dared to be pissed off about the way that the white supremacist American society has treated them. So, in their resentment, they fashion black people to be the "true racists" and they fashion themselves to be the victims of a society of "political correctness".

    It would be funny, if it weren't so sad.

    I don't think there's any question. Just look at our history. We didn't have a white man as President until George Washington.

    You are so wrong about that its pathetic. Out here in California racism of all stripes is routinely practiced mainly by the "minority" populations. For example in the transportation and logistics industry Mexicans essentially have a lock on all AG transport. Basically the only non Mexicans in that sector are those that were there before. Getting in after is NOT gona happen. In NC there is a city with so much racial strife its basically divided into thirds. You don't go into the other "races" sides without harassment. Its an extreme example mind you as I that particular city is the only one I have been to that was that way, I have been all over the United States, all lower forty eight, and that was by far the most openly blatant city about that sort of thing. It was so bad that people wouldn't take my money and refused me service unless they found out I was from elsewhere. The local Waffle House where ate at called me their token white boy. They were nice enough AFTER they figured I wasn't from around there.

    Wow. Not that any group is more racist than another but that Rasmussen actually thought it would be a good idea to do the poll. Going forward its going to me hard for me to hear the name Rasmussen and think of this poll and question it's motive.

    I woud personally guess if some whites are racists it's pobably due to stereotypes and an unintentional response to negative imagages. One litmus test a black preacher I use to listen to says is if your daughter brought home a boyfriend of another race, would race matter. I have white friends who told me it would and one actually went as far as saying no for another other race (Hispanic, oriental, etc.) but it would if he were black...because of the children.

    I think if more blacks would have racial animosity, it would be due to having a chip on their shoulders and incorrectly imagining any unpleasant incounter is motivated by racism and/or more people are racist than truly are all due to real the historical treatment of blacks. What I do find interesting however and one bright light in the Paula Deen controversy is of the media reports I've seen where blacks were asked their reaction, the vast majority of blacks speaking candidly on the subject, defended her and gave other expressions of support while whites were the ones being the most unforgiving. I think that says a lot with respect to race relations when blacks have become her biggest supporters in what is obviously one of the most challenging times in her life.

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

    What I find funny is all these people talking about white institutional influence or power, when the US government employs 17.5% blacks verses the 13.1% they represent in the population. Hispanics represent 16.9% of the population but only get 7.1% of federal jobs. Whites represent 77.9% of the population and only get 67% of federal jobs. Boy that's a lot of influence by white people. The numbers are similar for state and local governments. If there was going to be influence you would think it would be for government jobs. Guess the influence goes only so far.

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

    During my formative years, racism was defined as holding extremely prejudiced views towards those of different races. THe civil rights movement brought this into focus.

    Some very determined people like Harry Edwards and others attempted to redefine the term, and have been quite successful in doing so, for there are countless people who will swear up and down that the term can only mean insitutionalized repression by white people and against those of color.

    If one defines the term in a more tradtional fashion, I am not the least bit surprised by the findings. I lived in Oakland, California for many years, had a child in the school system, and he, especially, faced incredible levels of harrassment on a daily basis.

    If one defines the term according to the articicially constructed new definition, then black people cannot BE racist, since it has been defined so conveniently as to give them what amounts to a "get out of Jail free" card on the subject. IMO, this latter attitude actually contributes towards racism by creating privileged groups who are inviolate by very definition. When one group is constantly scrutized for any hint of bigotry and one group is given free range to indulge in it, the results should be pretty obvious.

    Most blacks? As in a majority? Nearly 50 percent is an astonishingly high response for that question in my view, regardless of the demographic group in question. I won't offer an opinion on which group is more racist in nature, but I sincerely doubt that a majority of either hold those views.
