1 in 10 Still Support Discrimination against African-Americans on Religious Grounds

Morgan Whitaker, MSNBC, June 4, 2014

One in 10 Americans believe small business owners should be free to refuse to serve or do business with African-Americans on religious grounds, according to a new poll.

A survey released this week by the Public Religion Research Institute finds that strong majorities of Americans reject the idea that businesses should be legally allowed to refuse to serve either African-American, Jewish, gays and lesbians, or atheists, but a small portion of the country still believes you should be able to.

Among the four groups, the survey found the least support for refusing service to African-Americans, but the most for discriminating against gay or lesbian individuals.

Asked if it should be legal to refuse to do business with members of the LGBT community on religious grounds, 16% said yes and 80% said no. Similarly, 15% said it should be legal to refuse service to atheists, with 81% saying it shouldn’t be. The polling found slightly less support for religious beliefs being sufficient to allow a small business owner to refuse to business with Jewish people, 12% said yes and 85% said no. And when it came to African-Americans, 10% said they supported the legal right to refuse service and 87% said they did not. PRRI conducted the survey of more than 1,000 adults via telephone, including cell phone users, and results have a margin of error of 3.1%.

While less common today, supporters of racial segregationists often used religious arguments to advocate their viewpoint before the civil rights movement of the 1960s. {snip}

The issue ended up before the Supreme Court when religious school Bob Jones University argued that its First Amendment protections should allow it to prohibit interracial dating without losing tax benefits. {snip}

    Yeah forcing people to integrate at gunpoint is so much more ethical and progressive then allowing freedom of association. I would be perfectly happy if non whites or gays or whoever banned me from ever being allowed into any of their gay bars, taco stands and laundry mats if I had the freedom to reciprocate.

      No one is pointing a gun at you and were you to look at who actually has all the guns, you might be surprised whose opinions and attitudes are rooted in hard power as opposed to propaganda.
      These people control the money supply, employment, courts etc. They control our institutions. And, if you want to use these things, they insist you accept this BS.
      However, what they don’t have is an army of jack booted thugs who will come to your house and burn it down if you refuse to cooperate. That’s not how they operate.
      At any time, you and I, and the rest of us can simply stop cooperating with them. The cost of that is creating parallel institutions that cut them out of the equation.
      To be direct, you will have to take all the money out of your wallet and burn it. Then accept Montana Militia dollars and only work, cooperate and associate with those who do likewise. Once the people doing this crest a certain threshold (lets call it a million people), their hold on power will be broken.
      Why? Because three dollars out of every four you earn in their system goes towards your own execution instead of your own wealth. You only cooperate because that’s the only deal in town. But if there was an alternative, you and everyone else would stampede to take advantage of it.
      The dollar would crash, the government would fall, every negro in the world would starve to death in short order and liberals would be flogged whenever discovered.

      “1 in 10 Still Support Discrimination against African-Americans on Religious Grounds”
      (translation) “1 in 10 (that was not afraid to admit) Support Discrimination against African-Americans on the grounds of safety and security concerns for fear of getting robbed, raped and murdered or.. all 3” 🙂

      Us Normal People, we usually do not go were we are not wanted. This included the fathers home of our wives, “da hood” Iran, Syria etc. Only the black beast insist on forcing their way into unwanted territory. Ironically then have the nerve to cry “racist” when the people rejects them. All the while begging for handouts, selling drugs, raping, robbing, murdering people. Oh.. and coincidentally preying on the weakest/dumbest of our women.. than brag.. “whyte wimminz lubz us” lol..

      • ElComadreja

        I need no “religious grounds” to support my right to not associate with blacks or mestizos. Not having anything to do with either group used to be called common sense.

    • CalMark

      I’m gay and I strongly agree with you.

  • These results show that the typical brain-dead American is a self-annilhilator, a willing participant in the destruction of a culture that took thousands of years and millions of lives lost in world wars to create and defend.

    And it took only a generation to get them to buy into their own self-destruction. The cultural Marxist takeover of universities and schools, turning them into egalitarian indocrination centers, did the job quickly.

    But that egalitarianism was built on economic prosperity, which the Marxists have also nearly destroyed. Thus, the vile 21st century American culture is a mile wide, but an inch deep.

    We need to make anti-black, anti-immigrant racism cool and hip, while utilizing the economic distress of white youth to bring them to our cause.

    • Thomas Parker

      Won’t work bigiefries, the young and hip are just waiting for you old fossils to start keeling over, then it’s party time.

      • Martel

        The old fossils are those who generally pretend that a multi ethnic society is feasible or even desirable. Its that generation, the sixties generation which is losing its grip on society. People will always prefer segregation, step into the best universities and you will see blacks, Asians and whites will mostly socialize with their own ethnic groups. The science is already there to explain us why. Hope it will not upset you when everything you have been taught to believe in turns out to be completely wrong.

        • Sheik Yerbouti

          And yet, the governments of the modern world feel that forcing integration will bring about changes that centuries have not.

          • Martel

            They believe they have invented a mixture of hedonism, ultras individualism and opening the doors to everyone who wants to join in.

      • Check out the website called Hipster racist and another called mindweaponsinragnarok. There are lots of young hipsters who are openly racist and proud of it.

    Interesting. Here’s an excerpt from Whitaker’s bio at MSNBC: “I’m the digital producer for PoliticsNation with Rev. Al Sharpton.”

    Evidently, she’s deeply interested in blacks and religion.

    • Thomas Parker

      Most white women are interested in black men because of their large peckers.

        Most white women aren’t interested in black men.

          Only sick fucks who are into bestiality. 90% or more, can’t get a human to mate with due gross obesity, ugliness or both. In any case, turn your backs on them. When they have trouble, they can go to the negro camp not ours. Once you go black, we don’t want you back.

            Watched a fight last Saturday (the only reason I watch TV) and even Taco Bell had an old negro eyeing an elderly white female. Every time I turn the idiot box on it further reaffirms why I hardly ever watch the thing. I would suggest to anyone that doesn’t want to get upset or worked up to avoid Marxist media.

          • [Guest]

            I cut the cable on TV (which I call “NTV”) more than 15 years ago.

            Last weekend, while driving to a remote hiking trail deep in a national forest, I saw at a roadside turnoff a petite blonde girl hanging on her black buck boyfriend. Later, on the way home, I stopped at a mountain lake where perhaps 50 people were sitting enjoying the scenery. Among them was a white girl and her black boyfriend.

            The real world is becoming as vile as NTV was 15 years ago. It’s to the point that you can’t go on a hiking expedition 100 miles from the nearest city without witnessing the degradation.

          • Garrett Brown

            Where are you living right now? Unless i go to the mall (which is once a year at the most) I hardly ever see interracial relationships.

          • [Guest]

            I see these parings—white female/black male—all over the area. I saw the above-mentioned interracial couples in the southern region of the Cherokee National Forest.

            I live next to the largest city in southwest virginia. Not extremely large, but nowhere near rural.

          • Spikeygrrl

            Really. And you don’t see interracial couples on a daily basis?! I respectfully suggest that you need to get your eyes checked and/or get out of the house more often.

          • Garrett Brown

            About once or twice a week at the same place. I have 20/20 vision.

            Hmmmm. Must be something in the water. 😉 Yanno, if your town is for real, you might want to consider starting-up a Web-based travel agency to promote it to White folks looking for a truly RELAXING vacation destination. (Sorry. You can take the grrl out of the business but you can’t take the business out of the grrl. After a few years’ rest from my last business, I’m in the process of gearing up for another one!)

          • Garrett Brown

            I’ve been to blue ridge park many a times. Hikes through our mountains all through my chdhood,crossed the natural bridge, went fishing, hunting, etc. I never saw blacks or browns of any sort. So I suppose for the time being, we already have our ultimate getaway for vacationing whites.

          • Spikeygrrl

            My point exactly…and SOMEBODY is losing out on a tidy little income stream by failing to promote it as such.

      What’s the matter? Someone “talked about your “GGGGGENERATION……why don’t you all just FFFFFade AWAY!…” Seriously, the commentator was just making a point about how this all started. And the Baby Boomers did have a lot to do with it.

      • ElComadreja

        It actually started much earlier. Many of the people associated with 60’s hippie culture were born before 1946.

      • ElComadreja

        Most “Boomers” didn’t give a rat’s ass about blacks. That was a small but very vocal minority of assholes. Younger people these days are a hell of a lot more smitten with them as a group than the “Boomers” ever were.

        • Sick of it

          My sister’s children are a lot like us. The older people all bend over backwards to make sure they don’t hurt a black’s feelings. They bow and scrape before the power of government, not even daring to question them.

          • ElComadreja

            Well it sure didn’t stick with me. Of course, I had the “pleasure” of growing up around real negros and not theoretical ones. Most of these “Boomers” that profess to love blacks make damn sure they live as far away from them as possible. My family were also race realists down to the last man.

      • Tom Thumb

        Play the cards you’re dealt and quit whining.

    • ElComadreja

      Damn straight. I’m sick of this revisionist history. To hear these people who weren’t even there talk you’d think every kid in the 60’s was a stone n***erlover. I sure as hell wasn’t and neither were most people. Want to blame someone? Look at the US gubmint.

      The Irish were sold as slaves by the English in the 17th century, Irish were cheaper than what they sold the negroids for.

      • Dave West

        If I was a plantation owner back then I would have bought Irish slaves. You could get twice the work done in half the time compared to black slaves. As an added bonus you wouldn’t have to spend your entire day around negroes.

        • Ahnenerbe ᛟ

          Yeah but back then the negroids worked hard under the lash. Plus they had selective breeding programs producing better chattel.

          • Dave West

            Despite claims by liberals and afrocentrists that each black slave was whipped on an hourly basis every day of every year, an overseer had to be somewhat frugal with the whip; not doing so could cause slaves to become more uncooperative and unruly, therefore decreasing production.

          • Ahnenerbe ᛟ

            I don’t know, it may depend on the ‘cracker’ I think it would be unwise to abuse bio-machinery.

          • Who Me?

            Many White slaves (read: mostly Irish) were labeled as “indentured servants” and basically rented out. Therefore they were treated worse than Africans who were bought outright. The same way people will take better care of a car they own outright as compared to one they rent.

          • Iron Helm

            Wrong, Indentured Servants were overwhelmingly English and most were voluntary – they were criminals who preferred it prison or people with no hope in the economy. The Irish who were indentured were mostly POWs and sent to the West Indies.

          • Garrett Brown

            That only applied for strength so they didnt need more than one man to haul tobacco or hay. What would selective breeding do for their intelligence and efficiency in working quicker? Not much at all. I’d go with me ancestors, they would be much better workers.

            Also, if blacks were bred to work hard, what happened to them between the 19th and 20th century? I didn’t know a sub species could regress that quickly in such a short amount of time. Quite hilarious, you must not work with blacks.

        Irish POWs were sent abroad out of convenience, they were not sold as slaves. However, the Irish did historically sell the English and Welsh as slaves.

        • Ahnenerbe ᛟ

          You’re a liar, during the 17th century more Irish slaves were sold than Africans . 5 sterling for a Irish, 50 sterling for a African. Read some history dude

          • Iron Helm

            Oh, I’m perfectly aware of how the Irish and Irish-Americans in particular like to report and distort there history. Its very easy to pick apart the lies in this particular “chapter” of Irish(?) history. Most White indentured servants in the Americas were English criminals, and most Irish indentured servants were criminals, POWs or political prisoners. Very different to slavery.

          • Ahnenerbe ᛟ

            You are the distorter. They were sold as slaves to the early American colonies and the Caribbean by the tens of thousands, little kids too.

          • Iron Helm

            It was nice of the English to let them take their families. Most indentured servants who had their labour sold to planters were English or Scottish, and most were volunteers who preferred it to prison. The English, Scottish and Irish labourers were cheaper than Africans because they didn’t work as well in the heat.

    • Martel

      1. Because you are proven right on a daily basis, a multi-ethnic society is not feasible and never will be. Ethnic conflict is an inevitable outcome to forced integration. Inequality is rooted in genetic differences amongst individuals, ethnic groups and races, however the last category is defined.

      2.Because of the success of strongly implicitly white parties in Europe, which will spill over to the United States as other popular European ideologies did in the past. American intellectuals, who tend to be in love with us theoretically minded Europeans, will be heartbroken when the multicultural experiment runs into the ground in Europe. This will be fun, so save up for some quality champagne for when these events unfold.

      3. Because this survey does not expose the large scale ethnic tensions existing in the United States or the general preference for segregation amongst European, African and Asian Americans.

      4. Because babyboomer ideology has run its course. Everyone notices how tired even its adherents are of defending it. They used to be happy to find a race realist to pick on, those days are over.

      One in ten is a positive number in my view, as no one politically relevant defends explicit discrimination but we are bombarded with promotions of forced integration. Its quite amazing the number is that high.You do not need to organize more then 4 or 5% of a nation to change its political order.

    The gay mafia strikes again! This whole story is about gays. I just heard about a Colorado bakery shop losing a court battle and being forced to bake wedding cakes for gay couples. The sniveling wretches at MSNBC have again succeeded at distorting the issue by placing gays in an “oppressed” minority context.

    • shawnmer

      Word was from another story that the bakery is simply eliminating wedding cakes from its product lineup. I’m waiting now for them to seek a court order telling the guy he MUST do wedding cakes, just so they can have the psychological satisfaction of forcing him to!

      That’s all “gay marriage” is truly about. A self-esteem booster and measure of revenge for gays against those they feel have “oppressed” them. If it were truly about the legal questions like tax treatment, insurance, hospital visitation, etc, they would be happy with “civil unions!” Period! They’re not, because they want THAT WORD.

    “1 in 10 Still Support Discrimination against African-Americans on Religious Grounds,”

    Well, how many hold a dim view of blacks everywhere by the entire population? Let’s forget about religious grounds.

    I don’t think there’s more than a very scant view who respect blacks, and most of them do so due to being weak-minded and easily conditioned mentally to accept what the propagandists want them to believe.

    White weenies will say one thing in a poll to be politically correct and because they want to give the “right” answer, but they’re still moving away when blacks move into their neighborhoods, and if they have the money they move from areas where their kids have to go to school with black trouble-makers.

    And that speaks louder and more truthfully than any “study” or poll taken on the subject.

  • anon

    No actual polling ever takes place. Instead, someone makes this stuff up and writes dozens of articles like this on orders from a handful of people who are all the same source for all media and have a pretty obvious agenda.

    “A survey released this week by the Public Religion Research Institute finds that strong majorities of Americans reject the idea that businesses should be legally allowed to refuse to serve either African-American, Jewish, gays and lesbians, or atheists…”

    A business is nothing more than an amalgamation of individual interpersonal agreements to exchange one good for another between individuals.

    If a free white individual has the personal right to not enter into an agreement with someone he wishes to not enter into an agreement with, how can he be forced to enter into an agreement with that person under the construct of a “business”?

    i’m not aware of any passage of the bible that would allow a business to deny service to blacks on religious grounds.

    the bible though does condemn homosexuality as an abomination and perversion. the first amendment guarantees religious freedom.

    should private businesses be allowed to refuse service like baking a wedding cake to homosexuals due to religious beliefs under the first amendment or should federal anti-discrimination laws force them to serve?

    • Lion’s Mane

      They should not be forced to serve a wedding cake to ANYONE. Federal laws can quickly develop into tryanny. Better too much personal freedom than too little.

      Many Christians traditionally opposed racial intermarriage. The refusal to serve Blacks was actually an expression of a desire to maintain racial purity — and racial purity for the Israelites is found throughout the Old Testament writings. (See Ezra Chapter 9 for just one example.) If this was good for Ancient Israel, why should it not be good for any other ethnic nation or race?

      Worshiping the male anus is not a religion.

      No biblical passage states we must accommodate males who have anal sex with males. No biblical passage states that we must accommodate any other individuals based on their perverse preferences.

    So, 9/10 “americans” support involuntary servitude as long as it is only imposed on white Christian men …

    Hmmm. That’ll teach you to go around the world busting up the slave trade.

    • dusa1957

      In liberal ideology, white Christian men are the purveyors of all historical “hate” crimes. They are the one group that can openly and publicly be despised and reviled. In fact, the mainstream media does this daily.

  • Pelagian

    And in today’s liberal culture, any basic social
    distinction can be stigmatized as “discrimination” — not
    discrimination in the old and sane sense of keeping
    unlike things separate, but in the current punitive sense
    of discriminating “against.” If you suffer any
    disadvantage from the ability of others to tell things
    apart, you now become a “victim” of discrimination, and
    the state must do something about it.

  • dusa1957

    There is on right of free association. In fact, it is a “hate crime” to even disapprove of anyone. I have no doubt this will soon be extended to pedophiles and those who practice bestiality. It’s not much of a further leap.

  • dusa1957

    Negroes whining about being let into white establishments and institutions was never about them wanting to be around white people. It’s really because they want something for free, that is they want white goods and services at the white taxpayer’s expense. They want the government to force all manner of businesses and institutions to allow or require their presence, subsidized by the government. Then they dress up this way of getting free handouts as an “anti-discrimination” program, and if you as a taxpayer oppose it you are branded a “racist”.

    Atheism? Unless the person is wearing clothing advertising the Atheist position, why would the subject even arise? As Thomas Jefferson said:

    “It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God.”

    (Note: If a small business does not want to host a convention of militant Atheists, that’s fine. It should be a free country! I’m talking here specifically about situations in which a person’s religious beliefs ought to be irrelevant to the business transaction in question.)

    One commenter doesn’t believe that blacks are more likely to be violent and wanted proof.

    If I could comment there, I’d say, “Detroit and any other majority-black major city.”

  • Ograf

    People should be able to serve, sell, or rent to anyone they choose, and not to anyone they don’t want to , for any reason. Forcing one to accept groups they don’t want is not going to make them any less wanted. If I’ve created a business and worked hard for it to be a success, then why would I need someone with guns to come and tell me I am running it wrong. That certainly isn’t the program I signed up for in my military service or freedom for all.

  • Alucard_the_last

    No PC thug, communist, Marxist, Leninist, Michael Moore, Noam Chomsky worshippers will never order me to like those creatures (negroes). Negroes are a pestilence of the land and the dwellers within. If I had the power, all pro-niggers would be forced to live in ghettos with these demons. I give it 6 month, at the most, before they do anything possible to get out of the ghetto.

      I have this fantasy that I can’t get rid of, where all the Marxists/Communists/Socialists/Progressives/Democrats (the party of treason) are rounded up, transported to the Pakistan and Afreaka, and sold as chattel, i.e., slaves, under sanction of Sharia Law.

    * If Joe White Boy is not serving some blacks, or some Muslims, or some gays, for WHATEVER reason (religious or otherwise), this indicates a reason
    * If Joe serves NONE of the above, why can’t they simply go elsewhere?

  • John R

    And ask African Americans if they should be allowed to discriminate against Whites to, uhh, “make up for past injustice” 98% would say yes. Ask if they should be allowed to physically assault Whites for same reason, I would bet a good number would still reply in the affirmative. I am tired of hearing about how “racist” we White people are, when blacks are 1,000’s of times MORE racist.

        Black slavery in America was ridiculously short compared to the enslavement of various white peoples. You would know that if you actually knew jack about history.

        Did you even understand what he wrote?

        Do you understand that slavery involved a scant few, but black on white hate and violence involves almost the entire racial group?

        And it’s happening NOW, not 200 years ago.

        And slavery, oppression, racism, etc., has nothing to do with black low I.Q. and an inability to learn.

      One of the delusions of modern-day white Americans is that black people do not detest them and wish to do whatever damage to them they can.

  • Sheik Yerbouti

    How many businesses are we talking about that REALLY want to drive business away because the people handling the green money are black? This is a fake article.

    • Who Me?

      Ask somebody who owns an upscale boutique, a nice, quiet restaurant, a classy hotel, a limo driver/owner… just about anybody who wants to run a quiet, civilized business, especially services, and has at any time had black customers. Blacks are typically NOT quiet, not respectful of others property or rights, they steal anything that isn’t nailed down and break everything that is. Plus they don’t clean up after themselves, leaving trash and broken things in their wake.

    • Sick of it

      Even small restaurants are tired of dealing with blacks. They cause too much trouble, rob the place too often, drive away paying/tipping customers…they aren’t worth the meager amount of money they typically spend.

  • WR_the_realist

    I believe a business ought to be allowed to choose its customers on any basis whatsoever. Why should they have to be religious? The vast majority of businesses want as many customers as possible. But some types of customers prove not to be worth the trouble.

    • Ngati Pakeha

      Just ask the many thousands of waitresses and waiters who have to put up with the well documented bad behavior of a certain class of “customers” – often for no, or a minimal tip.

    Proceed with caution on this.

    The “Public Religion Research Institute” is at (Catholic) Georgetown University’s Berkley Center, an organization that thinks that if you just bring religions together, kumbaya results.

    http://berkleycenter.georgetown.edu/about

    http://berkleycenter.georgetown.edu/resources/organizations/public-religion-research-institute

    I don’t have time to chase down their funding sources, but I recalled this one:

    http://www.ncf.org/news/PRRI-poll

    “The Public Religion Research Institute released the results of a survey commissioned by The Nathan Cummings Foundation. “Chosen for What?Jewish Values in 2012″ is the largest survey of American Jews every [sic] conducted by a non-partisan and non-Jewish organization.”

    Also they get funding from Ford and Carnegie–Globo-Philanthropy. Plus smaller funds like Haas and Arcus (mostly queer-focused).

    This deserves more digging before forming an opinion about any particular media/PR they do on any topic.

    Why does it have to be for “religious reasons”, how about the 1st amendment which guarantees the right to “peaceably assemble”, forcing a business to serve you by calling upon govt goons with guns is not peaceable.

  • Lion’s Mane

    I believe that if medical science invented a pill or other cure that would safely turn the brain of a homosexual into that of a heterosexual, a surprisingly high number of homosexuals would gladly get the prescription. Also, this kind of change has in fact been accomplished in the medical laboratory. Given electrodes (no doubt linked to a computer) to stimulate certain brain areas, a homosexual man was, while under the stimulation, artificially turned into very hetersexual man who was extremely turned on by, and desirous of, the women presented to him in the experiment.

  • American_cavalier

    Nice little deflectionction technique here. The question should be premised not on religious grounds but on constitutional grounds especially regarding free association and property.

    • Gus Baker

      That’s what I was saying, glad I’m not the only one who see this. Good post.

      • American_cavalier

        Its a strategy typical of those with tyrannical, abusive, and deceptive mindsets. They set up a false premise (Only some religious people) and then use the resulting false conclusion (Most people are against segregation, free association, property) to not only villify those seeking to justify the correct conclusion (segregation free association and property are good), but also villify those who are religious into thinking they have some wackos in the midst or that they will be thought of being wackos if they support segregation. In reply one could say that since the religious revival of the late 20th century there are still 10% of white democrats who oppose putting bibles in schools. Then publish that finding in the New York Times and see how the Jew Yorkers heads explode. Point being, this isnt an honest conversation its bloody flipping propoganda warfare!
