AP survey finds Americans still a bunch of racists… even if they don’t realize it

posted at 5:31 pm on October 27, 2012 by Jazz Shaw

It must be almost election time and, presumably, the president’s numbers must not be looking all that spectacular. How can you tell? Well, among various factors, the Associated Press has released yet another in their long series of heralded, highly respected studies detailing precisely what a bunch of racists you all are if you’re considering voting for anyone other than Barack Obama. Only this one comes with a twist. The helpful people constructing the poll, worried that you might be living in some sort of state of denial, will help ferret out your racist feelings even if you can’t recognize them yourself. (emphasis mine)

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.

How, you may be wondering, do they perform this miraculous feat? Why, it’s through the wonders of technology! You see, there’s a difference between “explicit racism” and “implicit racism” among Americans. For the “explicit racism” test, they just asked people how well certain words described various racial groups. These included things like, “friendly,” “hardworking,” “violent” and “lazy.”

But just in case you saw through that clever trick, they’ll still manage to get you sorted out with a test for “implicit” feelings.

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.

Their results? There’s plenty of explicit racism to go around, but when you roll in the implicit kind, more than half of the white people in America are racists. So, if Obama loses next week, now you know why.

Lanceman on October 27, 2012 at 5:42 PM

Yeah, this has been an old trick of the race pimps and assorted hustlers. See, if it’s implicit then we still “have a long way to go” and “more work to do”. In other words, it guarantees the soak whitey blame game will go on for a long, long time.

Dack Thrombosis on October 27, 2012 at 5:42 PM

If Obummer loses, the reason has always been preordained to be racism. The bitter clingers are incapable of making intelligent voting decisions based on the issues, so it’s got to be that.

KS Rex on October 27, 2012 at 5:44 PM

If they are referring to racism involving the current president, do we then qualify for being only 1/2 a racist?

Or my personal favorite, “let’s have a conversation about race” during our “sensitivity training.” If anyone ever asks you to have a conversation about race, run like all get out. That is how they prove you are a racist, because whatever you say is wrong.

How can racism prevent Obama from being elected in 2012 if it didn’t prevent him from being elected in 2008?

Obama has tread cautiously on the subject of race, but many African-Americans have talked openly about perceived antagonism toward them since Obama took office. As evidence, they point to events involving police brutality or cite bumper stickers, cartoons and protest posters that mock the president as a lion or a monkey, or lynch him in effigy.

Unlike all those lovely posters of Chimpy McHitlerburton.

If I had an IQ of 300, I don’t think I could come up with better ways to generate ‘racist’ sentiment than our culture is currently doing:

Take money from productive families and give it to those make nothing but trouble and unwanted babies.

-Give forced preference in hiring to the incompetent and unskilled, and in scholarships to spoiled brats who can barely read.

-Restrict the more lawful races from protecting themselves, and help the less lawful ones sue the former for daring to do so.

-Paint anyone who injures one of the Protected Class as a monster, and portray anyone who does the reverse as misunderstood or framed.

-Foist false guilt upon the innocent, and absolve those who are guilty as all hell of everything up to murder.

-Act like a wicked child throwing rocks at a chained dog…and then suffer dearly when the dog finally gets mad enough to break free.

Consider yourselves warned, liberal fools.

The left thinks blacks can’t get jobs on their own without the left’s artificial leveling of the playing field.

During the 80s, NASA was forced to adhere to affirmative action rules in hiring engineers. From a ranked stack of resume’s, they had to draw from the top 10% and the bottom 10% —- because the left assumed the bottom 10% would consist of blacks.

Am I a racist ….probably but I wasn’t born a racist I was created …..I listened to the liberal media as a child telling me how wonderful diversity was and how racism was my fault due to the color of my skin ….I believed them when they told me I had to make amends for slavery and that affirmative action and racial quota’s were good and that any test that a minority could not pass must be racist and all who had failed said test must be hired or paid. I watched as the media buried hid and denied the violence directed at members of my race at a rate on any given year of 90 % of interracial violence between AA and Whites is black on White ….that according to the Dept of Justice from 1976 to 2005 60 % of all felony murder was committed by less than 12 % of the population and while just 12 % of the population are 40 – 42 % of the prison population ….I watched as I became the breadwinner for 70 % plus of the AA children who are born to unwed mothers …. I watched as their drop out rate climbed and the schools got the blame and my taxes climbed ever higher to attempt to fix a problem that could not be fixed in a school house ….I watched as my community became more and more diverse due to sec eight housing it became less and less safe …..I watched youtube after youtube of ” youths ” rampaging through stores ….water parks ….beaches ….schools ….. football games …..as I watched all this unfold over the years I was told time after time that the choices they made to not finish school ….to have baby after baby as a single parent …..the crime …..the violence ….the drugs ….their failure to gain a free eduction was once again somehow my fault …..I listen to the media nearly every night tell me what a wonderful man our president is and that its not his fault that things are as bad as they are and if I believe it is I must be a racist ….O.K. then I must be a racist and they can all kiss my ass and my opinion will change when their behavior does in any case I don’t believe a damned thing they tell me anymore …..ever because the MSM has a agenda and they have lied to us for decades to further that agenda

There is a sociologist/psychologist line of thought, in my opinion very PC in it’s origin, that says various word associations are racist in their nature, even if the words would on the surface appear to be neutral. If you look at the how the language has changed in the last decade, more and more euphemisms versus actually using words that are specific and descriptive (very much in line with Orwell’s newspeak/oldspeak paradigm), then you know where I think this leads.

Harvard had a project to study it, called Project Implicit (https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/), that rated you as racist if you used words, terms and phrases that deviated from “newspeak.” This AP poll sounds like it is in many ways done in a fashion similar to some of the techniques of the Harvard study. Personally, I think it is a lot of crap, but it’s out there and has the imprimatur of at least one Ivy League school.
