Whites Are Much More Likely Than Blacks to See a Divided America

Rasmussen, October 28, 2014

Going into Election Day, white voters are nearly twice as likely as blacks to believe America is a more divided nation than it was four years ago. For one-in-three of all voters, President Obama is what this election is all about.

Sixty-one percent (61%) of Likely U.S. Voters say America is a more divided nation than it was at the time of the last midterm elections in 2010, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. That’s down slightly from 67% in mid-July. Nine percent (9%) say the nation is less divided now, while 28% believe the level of division is about the same.

    That’s because you need an IQ greater than that of a meat locker, to notice anything outside of your shuck and jive welfare bubble.

    • benvad

      Well put.

    • HE2

      I love you, Mekong.

      • MekongDelta69

        God, I hope to hell you’re a female!!

        • HE2

          MD, of course I am female!
          Rest assured.

          • MekongDelta69

            * I’m relieved (and flattered)!

          • HE2

            And I make the best lemon meringue pie this side of Nagasaki. ;]

          • MekongDelta69

            This might blossom into Hiroshima! 😉

    I can gladly report that many people I know are now openly blaming blacks for many of society’s ills while we are out and about town. These people would have given me a dirty look a few years ago for the same behavior.

    • propagandaoftruth

      You are not alone. I’ve noticed the same and take every opportunity to put in my 2 cents of encouragement.

  • dd121

    We can see it because a black president and attorney general have racialized justice in this country. And we’re on the short end. It’s all too clear.

  • Truthseeker

    This is good news. It means Whites are paying attention. Hopefully the “diversity” can keep shooting itself in the foot with its inability to restrain its hatred for us. You can only push our people around for so long before they push back.

  • Ograf

    When is the last time the president of the U.S. and the attorney general came to see a white persons relatives etc?. Not to mention the fact the person was a bully and a thug. We don’t hear about the white victims who have been randomly murdered, raped and beat with impunity.

      I’m sure they would have offered their condolences to the families of the California deputies killed by that twice deported Mexican, but they were too busy trying to figure out how to get more African ebola carriers into the US.

  • A divided country needs to be carved up into separate pieces, the economic consequences be damned. Secession, anyone?

    The southwest, or large parts of it, is already lost to the Mexicans unless we commit to full scale deportations of them. Parts of the East Coast and the deep South are lost to the blacks.

    If the territory is not carved up in such a way that white traditionalists and Christians have a say in governance, then more anti-white policies will be effected, up to and including some serious genocidal policies directed toward whites. For me, that’s not my future.

    Remember the 14 words.

      Oh come on, you know the blacks couldn’t even beat the Panamanian Army, let alone Southern whites.

      • IstvanIN

        Heck, they couldn’t beat the Costa Rican Army.

        • KevinPhillipsBong

          I’ll bet they could best the Haitian cavalry though.

          • benvad

            France should have sailed back and leveled that cesspool of a country.

    • SolStans

      I’ve been toying with that thought experiment, and the biggest problem I see is coastal access. The brown southwest, and black southeast are pretty much lost (including Hebrao-Cuban Florida). In order for sane whites to have waterway access, the self-loathing whites need to be displaced from their positions along the Atlantic and Pacific.

      We need a think-tank working on this, stat.

      • LHathaway

        What will the new Englander’s do? I’ve always imagined blacks will get all of the East Coast south of the St. Lawrence seaway.

    • LHathaway

      What? We will collect them, brand them, and place them outside our borders?

    • none of your business

      Christian churches are very anti White. You may belong so a small protestant church that is pro White, but most of the Christian sects are very, very anti White. I believe various Christian churches are the biggest providers of care to non White immigrants.
      Conservatism, patriotism, pro Americanism, pro capitalism, and Christianity are not pro White. We stand alone. Knowing what capitalism with immigrant labor and Christianity its love of non Whites has done to Whites I want nothing to do with traditionalists and Christians.
      Are you aware that the bishops of the Catholic, Lutheran, Episcopal and other Christian churches that have bishops have made statements in favor of affirmative action? Are you aware that the Baptists, Church of Christ and other so called conservative Christian churches import Haitians to America and welcome Africans.?

      • There are pro-white Christians but our churches have been corrupted to the point of apostasy, and “love thy neighbor as thyself” has become “love thy neighbor, hate thyself” while my “Christian” brothers and sisters worship the false idol of Diversity at the altar of Multicult.

        We aren’t all following church leadership into the abyss, so don’t write off Christians just yet.

  • IstvanIN

    This is why I feel the “nation” is more divided: Dreamers:

    • HE2

      Were these MS-13 cuties “unaccompanied minors?”
      Ye gods, they are ugly and savage looking ferals.

    • Rick O’Shea

      And let me guess… they ended up counted toward the white offender numbers?

  • Ultimate187

    A majority of Whites think the country is divided. A minority of Whites are willing to do anything about it.

  • “I am sick of being hated for who I am.”
    –Young White Man

    I actually enjoy being hated for who I am.

    • dukem1

      I get you both…But I do think that there is a growing number of whites beginning to realize that the default position of blacks is hate YT…
      Could be it’s too little, too late, but at least we’ll go down swingin’…

      • benvad

        We’re never going down because once the rage emerges they’ll be no stopping it. The agitators will be the ones who will go down.

        • Batterytrain

          Yes i am sure you will be raging w/ that “asian yellow fever” of yours and pathetic betaness, seriously get of out here you loser!

          • Usually Much Calmer

            But you should stay, definitely. Your manners alone punch your ticket.

    • Ultimate187

      You mean an Asian-loving, Amerind pretending-to-be-white guy?

  • none of your business

    Our biggest problem is the fact that the White elites and not just the Jews want us gone. We are competition.

  • Gary John 金白龍

    Whites are also much more likely than Blacks to pretend diversity is a strength.

  • Rick O’Shea

    I spent years and years being a full on white-guilt lefty. I’m still sort of amazed I woke up as thoroughly and as quickly as I did.

    For me the Trayvon case was the biggest catalyst. I hadn’t realized just how much kindling was there ready for the spark.

  • fgbrunner3

    Of course the country is more divided than it was four years ago. Obama is a professional racist.

  • Your testimony really resonates with me. Many people have no insight into what it’s like to have been harangued every single day of their lives, since Kindergarten, with messages about how White Christian Males represent everything that’s wrong with the world. When we can see with our own eyes how much good we’ve brought about.

    At some point, anyone with a brain will rebel.
