AP Poll: Majority Harbor Prejudice Against Blacks

Jennifer Agiesta and Sonya Ross, Yahoo! News, October 27, 2012

Racial attitudes have not improved in the four years since the United States elected its first black president, an Associated Press poll finds, as a slight majority of Americans now express prejudice toward blacks whether they recognize those feelings or not.

Those views could cost President Barack Obama votes as he tries for re-election, the survey found, though the effects are mitigated by some people’s more favorable views of blacks.

Racial prejudice has increased slightly since 2008 whether those feelings were measured using questions that explicitly asked respondents about racist attitudes, or through an experimental test that measured implicit views toward race without asking questions about that topic directly.

In all, 51 percent of Americans now express explicit anti-black attitudes, compared with 48 percent in a similar 2008 survey. When measured by an implicit racial attitudes test, the number of Americans with anti-black sentiments jumped to 56 percent, up from 49 percent during the last presidential election. In both tests, the share of Americans expressing pro-black attitudes fell.

Most Americans expressed anti-Hispanic sentiments, too. In an AP survey done in 2011, 52 percent of non-Hispanic whites expressed anti-Hispanic attitudes. That figure rose to 57 percent in the implicit test. The survey on Hispanics had no past data for comparison.

The AP surveys were conducted with researchers from Stanford University, the University of Michigan and NORC at the University of Chicago.

{snip}

The AP developed the surveys to measure sensitive racial views in several ways and repeated those studies several times between 2008 and 2012.

The explicit racism measures asked respondents whether they agreed or disagreed with a series of statements about black and Hispanic people. In addition, the surveys asked how well respondents thought certain words, such as “friendly,” “hardworking,” “violent” and “lazy,” described blacks, whites and Hispanics.

The same respondents were also administered a survey designed to measure implicit racism, in which a photo of a black, Hispanic or white male flashed on the screen before a neutral image of a Chinese character. The respondents were then asked to rate their feelings toward the Chinese character. Previous research has shown that people transfer their feelings about the photo onto the character, allowing researchers to measure racist feelings even if a respondent does not acknowledge them.

    It’s perfectly rational for Whites to have negative feelings toward nonWhites. Blacks and Hispanics exhibit poor judgement, poor impulse control, poor social skills. They are enthusiastic partakers of welfare and affirmative action. They vote almost exclusively Democratic; in other words they are anti-American. Asians almost all support left-wing tyranny too in the form of the Democratic Party. NonWhites are overpopulating the U.S. NonWhite immigrants account for around 80 percent of our population growth since the 1960s. We are becoming an overcrowded, third-world hellhole. Wherever nonWhites settle, that area becomes dangerous and ugly.

    And because so many nonWhites are criminals and parasites, the government has passed all kinds of draconian laws in an attempt to keep a lid on the chaos while also militarizing the police and instituting politically-correct speech codes and “hate crimes.” All of these things are the hallmarks of tyranny.

    The attempt by Democrats to deprive us of the right to bear arms and defend ourselves is almost entirely the fault of nonWhites. It is really the nonWhites the Democrats fear, but to disarm nonWhites, the Democrats must also disarm Whites to be “fair.” The Democrats are also unable to admit that nonWhites are a problem in any way (they are so lively and vibrant ya know) so they must demonize Whites.

    The bottom line is that nonWhites are ruining the U.S. and are serving as foot soldiers for the forces of left-wing tyranny.

  • Puggg

    I hope this news is accurate, for our cause.

    I fear this is pre-creating an excuse to explain away an Obama defeat.

    • ImTellinYa

      I imagine the poll is actually skewed a little. So many Whites are guilty about their perfectly reasonable negative attitudes toward nonWhites that they won’t admit it even to a pollster. I’ll bet it’s more like 3/4 are “racist” instead of 1/2. Of course those guilty Whites need to shed their guilt and rediscover who they are.

      To me though, the publicizing of the poll might be a tactic to convince a lot of Whites to prove the poll wrong by voting for Obonzo. The Leftist media is trying all kinds of underhanded tactics like this. This poll is just another way to demonize Whites and make them kowtow to the politically-correct tyranny that now defiles this country and Europe; a tyranny that has resulted in the election of an anti-American, affirmative-action parasite to the U.S. presidency.

        That’s exactly the desired affect of this “poll.” The MSM wants to create the
        mindset in the White masses that in order to prove we are not “bigoted,” we
        must reelect obama. The timing of this poll proves this.

        • tacheles

          I think you are right: whites  are encouraged once again to “prove” they are not “racist”.

          A much better message would be: If you voted for Obama the last time to prove that you are not a racist, this time vote for someone else to prove you are not an idiot.

          • ImTellinYa

             “…to prove you are not an idiot.”

    • KD_Did

      I believe the same.  These are the sounds we will hear if he loses. A test balloon call of racism to scare some voters back to him and set the stage for a possible loss. 

  • RebelliousTreecko

    I prefer the word “postjudice.” It fits better.

    Oh, and they apparently just deleted the article.

    • Triarius

      Yep. I read some of it earlier. Can’t have 11,000 people on there speaking the truth about blacks. Thought maybe it was my phone, but I read it earlier and if you can’t access it, that confirms it.

      Like the postjudice, too.

      Like when I say I’m a realist when called a racist, or a truthist when using facts and statistics.

      Btw, I always stop liberals and minorities dead in their tracks when calling myself a truthist. It is a label that I do not deny, they can’t dispute, and have probably never heard before. Makes them look really stupid.

  • Triarius

    And the link to the original article is already gone, meaning they took down the story. Either that or my phone is acting up.

    If it is the former it is because the majority of posts were against the liberal media’s ideaology, which is good.

    I personally think think anyone that has met about 10 blacks will start hating them. That’s what it takes to realize the bad ones are the rule and not the exception.

    More whites are for a white cause but cannot speak up for fear of being fired or feel they have too much to lose. Once whites in the US have little to lose, the gloves come off, see Golden Dawn for an example only add in 150,000,000 firearms.

    Enjoy it while it lasts darkies. You have about 20 years at the longest by my guess, but the sooner the better.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Rusty-Shackelford/1434757800 Rusty Shackelford

      You are correct- I read the original article and it was flooded with very un-PC comments, many of which blamed black behavior, and not skin color, as the reason white attutudes toward blacks have deteriorated. Not surprised it was taken down.

  • IstvanIN

    I have gotten white liberals, after much quiet arguing, to break down and agree that blacks are the dumbest, laziest, most violent people on earth.  My goodness, even blacks know it.  I have had blacks tell me things that I could never say to a black about their own people.

  • tacheles

    Link to original does not work.

    I found the Yahoo article here: http://news.yahoo.com/ap-poll-majority-harbor-prejudice-against-blacks-073551680–election.html

    HUGE number of comments! Over 34,000

  • tacheles

    The poll does not distinguish between “prejudice” (i.e. pre-judging or judging without evidence) and judgment based on experience. Liberals typically conflate the two and argue in a vacuum without a referent. The referent in this case is actual, observable black behavior.

    • bluffcreek1967

      Good point. Many Whites are prejudicial toward Blacks not out of blind ignorance, but because of EXPERIENCE with and OBSERVATION of Blacks!

  • nathan wartooth

    Everyone is assuming that they polled just Whites. Not true. Read the actual study results here:

    http://surveys.ap.org/data/GfK/AP_Racial_Attitudes_Topline_09182012.pdf

    RACE / ETHNICITY2010 2012White, Non-Hispanic 69 67Black, Non-Hispanic 11 12Other, Non-Hispanic 5 6Hispanic 13 142+ Races, Non-Hispanic 1 1

    *************

    Only 67% of those polled were Whites. Oh and it would have been nice if they had the racial breakdowns on how exactly each race felt about other races but of course the data isn’t there. 

    So by saying that Obama is going to lose votes because people don’t like Blacks is so misleading. If Blacks said that Blacks were violent then it would have zero change and same with Hispanics who vote 60-70% Democrat no matter who is running. 

  • Ulick

    Here’s a list of nations where if that nation’s citizens were given truth serum the majority of people would admit that they hold some negative views of black people… 

    Afghanistan Bahrain Bangladesh Bhutan Brunei Burma (Myanmar) Cambodia China East Timor India Indonesia Iran Iraq Israel Japan Jordan Kazakhstan Korea, North Korea, South Kuwait Kyrgyzstan Laos Lebanon Malaysia Maldives Mongolia Nepal Oman Pakistan Philippines Qatar Russian Federation Saudi Arabia Singapore Sri Lanka Syria Tajikistan Thailand Turkey Turkmenistan United Arab Emirates Uzbekistan Vietnam Yemen Belize Canada Costa Rica El Salvador Guatemala Honduras Mexico Nicaragua Panama Argentina Bolivia Brazil Chile Colombia Ecuador Paraguay Peru Uruguay Venezuela Australia Fiji Kiribati Marshall Islands Micronesia Nauru New Zealand Palau Papua New Guinea Samoa Solomon Islands Tonga Tuvalu Vanuatu Albania Andorra Armenia Austria Azerbaijan Belarus Belgium Bosnia and Herzegovina Bulgaria Croatia Cyprus Czech Republic Denmark Estonia Finland France Georgia Germany Greece Hungary Iceland Ireland Italy Latvia Liechtenstein Lithuania Luxembourg Macedonia Malta Moldova Monaco Montenegro Netherlands Norway Poland Portugal Romania San Marino Serbia Slovakia Slovenia Spain Sweden Switzerland Ukraine United Kingdom Vatican City Algeria Egypt Libya Morocco Tunisia 

    So either the vast majority of people of various races, ethnicities, and locations harbor “prejudiced” thoughts against blacks for no reason or perhaps there’s a reason.

  • SirMarlowe

    It’s most likely that racial attitudes on the part of Whites toward Blacks would not have improved over the past four years no matter who was president. One reason is simply because Blacks have steadily become more violent and criminal. This increasing violence and crime is a function of their genetic make-up and is not contingent on the race of the president. Now that the Blacks have their freedom, and because White liberals are bending over backwards to accommodate them, they will become more and more violent and criminal until Whites decide that they are not going to take it anymore.
     
    Another very important reason that Whites have become more racially aware (prejudiced in liberal-speak) is because for the past four years they have witnessed a Black president who is immoral and degenerate. Most Americans who still have morals have become aware that Obama is a homosexual, a drug-addict, and a Marxist-Communist. They have become aware that he is a liar, that he has failed to disclose personal information, and that he has misrepresented himself: he has lied about his birth certificate, he has misrepresented himself with a phony social security card and about who his biological father is, and he has failed to disclose his college transcripts and his passport records. Surely, such behavior on the part of the President of the United States of America constitutes misdemeanors.
     
    These are all impeachable offenses, and if Obama is re-elected, he will surely be impeached and convicted for them. Since both the House and the Senate will be controlled by Republicans, the House will impeach and the Senate will conduct the trial and find Obama guilty. He will then be asked to pack his things.
     
    The downside of this is that Vice-President Joseph Biden will then become president. Since we do not want to have Biden as president, the best strategy is to do our best to elect Governor Romney. Your vote could be the decisive vote, especially in the swing states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Virginia, Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada, and New Hampshire.
     
    At the federal level, Article II of the United States Constitution (Section 4) states that “The President, Vice President, and all civil Officers of the United States shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors.” The House of Representatives has the sole power of impeaching, while the United States Senate has the sole power to try all impeachments. The removal of impeached officials is automatic upon conviction in the Senate. In Nixon v. United States (1993), the Supreme Court determined that the federal judiciary cannot review such proceedings.
     
    The conclusion is: we either have Romney for four years or Obama for one year and Biden for three years. If Romney doesn’t win this year, he will likely not run again in 2016. This would mean that Hillary Clinton would have an advantage against any Republican candidate. Even if Romney wins this year, he would not have it easy defeating Hillary in 2016; she would get a huge female vote plus all of the growing minority groups.
     
    The conclusion is that voting for Governor Romney would be our best strategy.

    The narrative that whites are the most racist, or even the only racist, racial group is itself racist. Truth is all races are racist. Unfair labeling is why the race bait game isn’t working anymore. Another reason is that young whites have grown up in a Post-Jim Crow society. They don’t feel they owe blacks anything (and they don’t). Their parents, who are dying off in droves from old age, may have felt guilt over their sins of discrimination but their children don’t understand why they should share blame. Didn’t we pass civil rights laws? Didn’t we elect a black president? To be told we’re guilty of privelage and king of the racists is absurd … and frankly, racist.

  • ImTellinYa

     About our one point of disagreement; I think we are both correct. I didn’t really express my point very well. You are totally correct that the Leftist tyrant brats do hate and fear White males who are armed. Leftist tyrants have redefined cowardice as courage and they have strained every nerve to make everyone cowards just like them by making it illegal to be otherwise (don’t fight back, run away, cooperate with the lively, vibrant criminal, the criminals just need your stuff, etc.). We see this in Britain especially.

    So any White males who are armed and willing to defend themselves are terribly threatening to Leftist cowards who are firmly in denial about the true nature of nonWhites. But the Leftist must use the massive levels of violence committed by nonWhites as their main reason for disarming everyone. As usual, the Leftists can’t openly admit this, so they simply demonize armed Whites as causing the nonWhite violence because those Whites insist on the right to be armed.

    The Leftists are redefining nonWhite criminals as victims of Whites who are armed even though armed Whites are rarely, if ever, a violent threat to anyone (the “White gun culture” makes nonWhites kill each other, sob!). The only exceptions to this are the Leftist losers who believe that they too are oppressed victims and are entitled to lash out at their supposed oppressors (the White school shooters for instance).

    It’s a tangled, irrational mess (as are ALL Leftist rationalizations), but essentially the impulse for gun control is another example of Leftists using nonWhites as an example of a problem caused by Whites that must be solved by punishing Whites. All lies of course, but lies are the main currency of Leftist thought (i.e. irrational emotion).

    But make no mistake, a lot of Leftists are deathly afraid of the very nonWhites they glamorize and pretend to admire. That’s why Leftists grovel and strike submissive attitudes around nonWhites. It’s really obvious and disgusting. Also notice how elite, White Leftists almost never live in lively, vibrant, diverse neighborhoods. Not for long anyway. They can’t admit that they are fools and cowards. You and I are expected to pay the price for their fear and denial. We foot the bill so Leftists can play God (and they are horribly underqualified for that job).

    You and I are definitely on the same side.

  • libertarian1234

    The majority of people do not harbor prejudice against blacks.  Their feelings are based on facts, not  prejudice.

    Reality clearly shows that blacks have out-of-control crime, bad attitudes, abysmal, unreasonable hatred against whites, and an inability to competently function in a first world nation, as a group.  They’re loud, rude, abusive and they have a propensity for violence, with a distinct inability for impulse control.  They want instant gratification and are unable to make plans for issues and occurences that require time and effort over a long period of time.    Jealousy and resentment because all other racial groups outperform them is at the heart of their animosity….in part…. as is hatred of non-blacks in general. 

    In spite of their many short comings, they’re easily the most arrogant group on planet earth.

    And, it is not just whites, as a group, who have unfavorable views of blacks.  The majority of all the other races do as well.  Hispanics are fighting them in what amounts to chaotic conditions in many parts of the country, especially in California.  As LA County sheriff Lee Baca wrote in the LA Times:

    “The truth is that, in many cases, race is at the heart of the problem. Latino gang members shoot blacks not because they’re members of a rival gang but because of their skin color. Likewise, black gang members shoot Latinos because they are brown.”

    http://articles.latimes.com/2008/jun/12/opinion/oe-baca12

    Asians are being bullied by blacks in areas where they live in close proximity to blacks or go to school with them, as do other racial groups besides whites, Hispanics and Asians.

    http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Black-attacks-on-Asians-racism-or-opportunity-3265893.php

    And these unfavorable feelings are not exclusive just to the US.  Other people in other lands regard blacks unfavorably also.

    So if any of these radical leftist types who conduct these studies weren’t ignorant and misinformed….and brainwashed into a mentally conditioned mindset….they would be able to see the fallacy of regarding any kind of racism to be a problem within the non-black population…especially whites.

    But don’t expect them to be enlightened anytime soon, because their programming is so deep and thorough they couldn’t even begin to objectively examine the racial problems caused by blacks, so, consequently, it will get worse.

    And what about black prejudice towards whites?

    The can’t have “prejudice” against Whites, because blacks are the victims of historic injustices, such as racsim, slavery, segregation, and the Neo-Confederate Nazi Ku Kluxers, and especially hurt by those who are intolerant of wonderful, historic, and transformational Diversity Leadershiop.

    Black victims are sacred and struggle for social justice. There is no price too high for Whites to pay.

    Of course the professor punched in the stomach, the bus driver sucker-punched in the face, and the bloody black atrocities in the New Orleans Superdome can all be excused, and they are excused, with the usual liberal blather: “They are just isolated incidents,” or, “You must understand their rage.” But the non-liberal white knows the incidents are not isolated incidents; they are small samples of the ongoing war, aided and abetted by the liberals, of the black against the white. It’s a particularly gruesome war because whites seem unwilling to defend themselves; hence, the war is more a series of massacres than a series of battles. But why won’t the white man defend himself against the onslaught of the colored barbarians? Why does the white man lack the self-preservation instinct that all other races seem to possess? The neo-pagans tell us it is because Christianity destroys a man’s instinct to defend his race. But if that was so, the Christians of the South during the 1800’s would have simply surrendered to the North. Instead we saw in those Christians, before and after the war, an unprecedented example of a people determined to preserve their race:

    “It is charged that the written law is not always fully and freely observed at the South in matters relating to the exercise of the elective franchise. The defence is not so much a denial of the charge as it is a confession and avoidance. To the accusation it is replied that the written law, when subverted at all, is so subverted only in obedience to a higher law founded on the instinct of self-protection and self-preservation.”

    Those sentiments, expressed by America’s most Southern and most Christian writer, Thomas Nelson Page, were the sentiments of the white Christian people of the south. So the preservation of one’s race is absolutely in keeping with the highest tenets of the Christian faith. We must look elsewhere to find the reason for the white man’s suicidal rush for the abyss.

    It’s truly amazing how the state-owned propagnda machine injects words and subliminal messages into the gullible public. The message they are conveying is: “If you don’t like blacks, you must be prejudiced”. Or of course racist. Second message: If you don’t vote for Obama, you must be both.

  • Golden Rule Macongo Jed

    Blacks are so special, they can tell that Obama’s White half (no such thing, really) isn’t “doing enough” for their blackness.

    What the impatient blacks don’t know is that Obama is destroying White privilege, which is the one last obstacle to total BRA Diversity Tyranny. Obama has a plan, and he’s working it to perfection. He knows that black will vote for him, so he can collapse the system for their benefit on a timetable that works “for all”.

    We all know it’s true, and we’ve been warned for four centuries, blacks will bring down the American Republic.

    Yippie, another liberal rag describing HOW Whites hate blacks, but they never bother to ponder why. It’s a matter of trained response and in fact “choice”. Funny how the Libtards are champions of their own “choice”, in particular when they demand the choice of determining that an unwanted pregnancy is either an invasion of their body, and a hindrance on their liberties, success and therefore should have the freedom to abort at will, without question.

    Fine, frankly I and many other Whites consider Blacks to be the same threat to our safety, liberty, happiness and often, a literal threat to our lives…. yet we aren’t afforded much “choice”, no we are forced to accept, integrate with and for about the last 20 years, expected and encouraged to “praise” Blacks.

    What a bunch of arrogant jerks the people who do these studies are! When they said “Americans” are prejudiced against blacks, did they mean White Americans? Or Hispanic Americans?

  • JohnEngelman

    Prejudice is not caused by delusions passed down through the generations. It is based on previous experience.
     

    • tacheles

      If it is based on experience it is not prejudice.

      The term “prejudice” is constantly misused. What is meant is negative attitude. This attitude might be justified or not. In the case at hand, it is mostly justified.

      This poll also does not consider that most people don’t view blacks as a monolith as the phrase prejudiced against blacks would imply. For example, you might loathe criminal ghetto thugs and have a positive view of striving blacks.

      • JohnEngelman

        Because I have been robbed at gunpoint and mugged by blacks I take precautions with young black men I do not take with young men of other races. That is an example of prejudice, but it is rational because blacks do have a rate of violent crime that is eight times the white rate.      

        • tacheles

          I have no doubt that your views are justified. I harp on the word “prejudice” because it is part of the leftist propagandistic arsenal. The left manipulates language for its nefarious and destructive ends. I want to make sure I inoculate myself against the manipulative use of language by the left.

          The word prejudice is objectionable in this context because it implies an irrational response when in reality negative attitudes toward black behavior are anything but irrational.

        • http://profile.yahoo.com/SVXVW3GTZ2ES4KXN6WW3WMI4KI Luca

          To be prejudiced would mean you “pre-judge” someone based on unfounded, preconcieved notions you might have.  You are not pre-judging anyone. You are judging them based on experience and therefore your opinion is well founded. The left always does this, they hijack words to make them mean whatever they want. Just like “racist”, another hijacked word. Cracks me up when Mexicans accuse whites of being a racist. Mexican is a nationality and not a race. Doesn’t matter, liberals never dwell on the truth.

        I would say that prejudice is only morally wrong if one’s dislike for a member of another race continues despite evidence that the person does not correspond to the reasons one has learned to dislike the race as a whole.
         
        I am prejudiced in favor of Jews, but I have known a few I disliked, just as I have known quite a few blacks I liked. 

  • Tim_in_Indiana

     The same respondents were also administered a survey designed to measure implicit racism, in which a photo of a black, Hispanic or white male flashed on the screen before a neutral image of a Chinese character. The respondents were then asked to rate their feelings toward the Chinese character. Previous research has shown that people transfer their feelings about the photo onto the character, allowing researchers to measure racist feelings even if a respondent does not acknowledge them. 

    Hmmm, “racist” this and “racist” that. Such a pejorative word used for such a supposedly neutral scientific survey. 

    Could they not have found a more neutral word to describe their findings? One wonders if they told the participants, “This test is to find out just how racist you really are.” 

    Somehow, I doubt it. Yet they have no problem with labeling after the fact those who were kind enough to participate in the study as “racist”. Makes me wonder just how unbiased their study really was. 

    It sounds to me like this survey was just a ploy to gain funding under the guise of rooting out vicious “racism” in the American people. 

    And when is the media going to do an expose of how Americans were conned into voting for Obama under the guise that it would somehow promote racial “healing?” Obviously, that turned out to be a total farce.

    Prejudgment of Africans? Hardly. My observations are based on the unwelcome presence of large numbers of blacks and the psychopathologies and crime that must be endured wherever they congregate. Close and unavoidable contact with blacks is psychologically stressful, culturally repellent, disorienting, and often very dangerous.

  • bluffcreek1967

    You know, that’s very true. Blacks seem to do everything in their power to assure that others will despise and mock them. Even when they know they are hated by other racial groups, it does not affect them in any way. They don’t make any collective effort to improve how they are perceived by the rest of humanity. They refuse to humble themselves or conduct themselves with any deceny and grace. In truth, Blacks are their own worst enemies. I don’t feel sorry for them. I don’t pity them. I’m beyond all of that now.  

    • ImTellinYa

       A lot of what Blacks do is akin to putting a chip on their shoulder. Even the most dangerous Blacks dress exactly like extremely goony circus clowns. They look like bags of loud, dirty clothes and mismatched body parts rolling down the street. The point is that they look like a cross between a convict and an inmate from an insane asylum and they would enjoy it very much if you would point that out to them so they would have a reason to “mess you up.”

      That “music” they listen to is just another chip on the shoulder. You will note that they play it as loud as possible so it can be heard for hundreds of yards. They are not “enjoying” this as much as they are projecting it at you like a weapon. You even see it in the way they treat each other. Friendship between Blacks is similar to what happens between two Whites when they are deadly enemies.

    How wonderful it is to get up every morning and hear from the media, government and schools that I am an evil racist.  And now this:  A “You’re Too Stupid to Recognize if You’re Racist” article right before the election.  The left has been calling me a racist for so long that no longer registers; it is falling on deaf ears.  I have race fatigue and no longer care.

    In all, 51 percent of Americans now express explicit anti-black attitudes, compared with 48 percent in a similar 2008 survey

    *Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.

    *Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. 

    *Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.

    *Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.

    Experience is not prejudice.

    I’m still able to see the story on Yahoo, but that’s because I made comments on it and I can click on the links that take me to my comments.  Judging by the most recent comments, I would say they took it down around 8 hours ago.  There are close to 35,000 comments which is one of the largest totals I’ve ever seen.  My race realist comments got variable reactions, but mostly positive, with typically a 4 to 1 ratio of up/down thumbs.  Yahoo News has a center-left bias that is called “moderate” by most people, and so I find it useful to visit just to see a slice of the “mainstream”.

    The raw AP survey results are here:

    http://surveys.ap.org/data/GfK/AP_Racial_Attitudes_Topline_09182012.pdf 

    You’ll have to skip past the general questions to the middle section (starting around page 15) that deals with race.

    These were interviews, presumably face-to-face or phone, where most people will give expected answers rather than honest ones.  The responses to questions that deal specifically with race are therefore rather depressing, with everyone (whites in particular) hewing to a color-blind perspective as if their lives depended on it.  The overwhelming impression is the triumph of empty-headed egalitarism.  Thus the “increasing racism” must be extrapolated by the “academic analysis” at this link:  http://tinyurl.com/8pzbebm 

    At no point is reality allowed to intrude – specifically, just what are the facts related to black violent crime and black dysfunction?  Do racial attitudes simply reflect the nature of reality, and if so, are facts racist?  The AP, while being nominally a collection of journalists, of course finds it distasteful to report such facts, or even to pose such questions.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      I wonder how much of this is attributable to the Bradley effect.

      If I were called and asked questions about race for a supposed poll, I would hang up the phone immediately.

      I would never trust the pollsters not to release my name, phone #, etc.

    I live in a rental community in a mostly white beach community in S. California. For a short time, I had a black neighbor. He was actually civilized and respectable. I had no noise or security problems with him. He was one of my better neighbors. Some of the bikers and young surfers can be pretty loud and rude. Anhyow, the black guy, even though quite harmless and civil, was an uppity liberal with a chip on his shoulder. EVERYTHING was racist. He was never threatening or abusive, but he would rant about racism everywhere. He reported that people on our sidewalks would move away as he walked by, and that store owners would watch him closely, as if they expected him to steal something. He also reported that many people were overly polite to him, but wanted nothing to do with him. There was also the police element, “driving while black”.  He had taken all of this personally…”I am not a criminal, why do they treat me as such?”. My black neighbor was not a criminal nor did he fabricate these stories, but he was in complete denial about black crime reality. He blamed whites for being racist while denying obvious facts and statistics. He eventually felt too uncomfortable around us and moved to a “diverse” city. I felt badly that I lost a quiet neighbor…God only knows what will move in. One well-behaved black is fine with me….but only one, thanks.

      We have the very same problem with so-called “educated blacks” in South Africa.  Their “education” seems to have consisted of seeking “racism” everywhere, and thus they are inclined to interpret almost every word and action of whites as having an underlying  “racist” sub-text.   To them the words “white” and “racist” describe the same thing and are thus inter-changeable.

      This is also why an honest white cannot ever really have a “black friend” because it would entail always walking on eggs and having to double-think and pre-censor everything you might want to say.   Therefore any white who claims he or she has a “good black friend” is a liar or self-deceiver and certainly a traitor to his race because in order to be “friends” he would have to continually endorse the entire hostile anti-white black political entitleMUNT agenda.  If there are exceptions then they are very rare.

      • Guest

        I’ve tried to be friends with various blacks I’ve met in my life. On rare occasion it worked out ok. Usually, I had to walk on egg-shells and conceal even my most benign conservative beliefs. In some cases they turned out to be criminals. In some cases, they were relatively fine, but we simply had nothing in common. I try to stay on good terms with as many people as possible, but not get too close. I do that with whites, but with some minorities, it is even more important to keep a distance.

    A big reason the “goat herders” weren’t stopped is because the treasonous Democrats had neutralized our security services.

    “Darkie”
    toothpaste was a very popular brand sold in S.E.Asia – I liked the flavour (and
    the symbolic un-peeceeness of it) and would always buy a tube or two whenever I
    saw it (usually in Thailand).  But about 20 years ago the inquisition caught
    up with them and under threat of being (figuratively) burned alive forced them
    to rename it which they did to the meaningless “Darlie”.   They
    also had to change the top-hatted “Darkie’s” face from negroid to one
    of indeterminate race.

    Maximum Veritas- It just doesn’t get any better than this:

    LA replies:

    Moral of the story: it’s not just that many individual blacks (including black Hispanics) are savagely violent and extremely dangerous to whites; it’s that the black community as a community supports those violent and dangerous black individuals. Further moral of the story: beyond the duty of decent behavior owed to black individuals, white Americans owe NOTHING to black America as a community. Black America is an unregenerately hostile and destructive force in our midst. And the solution? Terminate all unearned material and symbolic privileges to blacks. Repeal most anti-discrimination laws and regulations. These steps will disempower the black community, lead to a return to natural racial segregation at the local level, and restore blacks to the relatively powerless condition they rightfully occupy in this country. Of course America will never adopt such measures, until the liberal order collapses.

  • Golden Rule Macongo Jed

    The blacks will flee to White neighborhoods, just ast the emacipated slaves fled back to their masters when nobody would feed them.

    Blacks will destroy White communities and say we deserve the misery for not protecting them from the hispanics soon enough.

    To blacks, Whites are always the enemy to be crushed, even when their problems are not our fault.

    THIS IS A RACE WAR. Do you daughters know about it yet?

    I had what would be considered “good” black neighbors when I lived in Detroit.  They were helpful and appreciated living in what was then a majority “white” neighborhood.
    Problems started when their “cousins” and other “relatives” would visit.  I had a mid 1960′s “hot rod” that I would park in my driveway.  One time, when the neighbor’s “cousins” visited they proceeded to “sit” on the hood and trunk of my car.  When told to  “remove themselves”, they glared back with racial epithets and “cuss words”.  When I informed my wonderful neighbor of their visitors’ misdeeds, they replied that “boys will be boys” and to “leave it alone”.  That was the last straw; I moved out of Detroit shortly after.
    Growing up in Detroit during the so-called “civil-rights (for some)” era was no better.  One had to be wary of two blacks riding one bike, one pedaling and the other on the handlebars.  This weas a recipe for trouble as knocking a white kid off his bike and taking it was normal behavior for blacks in the days of “unequal treatment” and “civil-rights (for some)”.  When white parents would confront the black adults, they were pretty much told to “f–k off”.  Police were no better as “possession” was 9/10th of the law”.
    Detroit used to be a good city.  The death knell of Detroit started with Brown v. Board of Education and passage of the 1964 “civil-rights (for some)” laws.

    I think, however, that for rank and file urban white liberals, it is a fear of blacks that drives a lot of the drive for gun control. It doesn’t matter to them that blacks will get guns in other ways, for it is an irrational position caused by a rational but unacknoledged feeling.

    Fear porn. For two days, Obama did his job (sorta) and appeared as Presidential as Romney has all fall. This barely if at all moves the needle.

  • vladdy1

    Interesting how the term “Americans” is used to mean “whites,” but only in a negative story like this. (Wait — I’ll change that. It is GOOD that people are more racially-conscious. Dang, I almost fell into the routine myself.)

  • vladdy1

    I’ll take that bet. I don’t think the simmering resentment people feel toward BO is going to go away because he does a few photo ops with Chris Christie. I DO live in the heartland, but it’s so intense here, that when you’re standing in line at the store, somebody will start talking about how glad they are the election’s coming and how rotten a job obama has done.

    Some other signs of disgust, I believe, are the rise of the Tea Party (and the rush to condemn them by the let), the 2010 election, and recently, Chic-Fil-A Day. I think, too, that when a lot of people (media) think about states like Ohio, they think of Columbus and forget there are hundreds of miles of small towns and cities where people are horrified by their representation the last 4 years.

    Google “dancing Israelis and 9-11″  You will not like what you find.  Israeli “citizens” were caught videotaping the twin towers and building 7 as they fell.  When questioned, they replied that “the muslims were our problem now”.  A few days later they (along with Israeli (mossad) “art students” and an Israeli-owned “moving company” were spirited out of the country.  Attempts to get information about these people were met with a “national security” blackout–no information would be forthcoming.  IF Israel had prior knowledge and involvement in the twin towers destruction and IF American citizens found out, Israel would cease to exist.  The 9-11 incident has “false-flag” written all over it.  In addition, no Israelis were killed in the twin towers–their message service (odinga) warned them to stay home. . .
    From an engineering standpoint, the towers fell into their own “footprint” along with building 7 that was supposedly slated for demolition that day . . . of course, most people REFUSE to believe that WTC was anything more than a terrorist act . . .
