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

    Rasmussen’s Bizarre Poll About Racism | TPMDC

    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.

    Only some white folks are racist but all non-whites are simply expressing justified resentment (to all white folks) because some white folks are racist. It is simple, really.

    I think most blacks think that most whites are racist. I'm not sure they're racist themselves . . . I wouldn't even want to offer an opinion on whether or not they're racist. My own personal experience is that blacks have, almost without exception, treated me very well -- never showed any animosity toward me that I attributed to racism, certainly never used any racist language, etc., etc.

    But if I listen to people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? Or, better, if black people listen to and are influenced by their likes? Then they would be led to believe they're behind the eight ball no matter what they do. And, of course, it's not true.

    I said keeping racism alive and well in America, and you said "it's a right wing poll."
