Race Relations Worse Under Post-Racial President

Race relations are now worse despite America’s first bi-racial and post-racial president.
But, but…. It’s all Bush’s fault!

David Gardner of the UK’s Mail Online writes on October 8, 2010:
Hopes that race relations in America would improve with the election of the nation’s first black president have been dashed – with figures showing that the situation has actually worsened in the past two years.
A new poll found that just 36% per cent of voters now believed that relations between black and white was getting better. This is compared with 62% a year ago and 55% in April.
According to the Rasmussen survey, black respondents were less optimistic – with just 13% believing that understanding between the races was heading in the right direction, compared to 39% of whites.
Confidence that America had broken through a major race barrier with Mr Obama’s election two years ago appears to have sunk along with the popularity of his administration.
Washington analysts believe voters became more polarised as jobless figures continued to rise, the economic recovery remained sluggish and the Democrat-controlled government pushed through unpopular health and financial reforms. It didn’t help when several prominent Democrats – most notably former president Jimmy Carter – suggested that opposition to the party’s healthcare overhaul was motivated by racism.
[…] Rasmussen claims that 27% of Americans now believe that black and white relations are actually deteriorating, up by 10% from last summer, while 33% think they are about the same. 
The survey, carried out last weekend, suggested that relations between whites and Hispanics in the US were even worse. Only 21% thought they were improving while a staggering 50% felt they were getting worse, while 24% said they were unchanged.
Men quizzed by researchers were more optimistic than women. 59% of blacks remained more optimistic that America was moving in the right direction under Mr Obama, a view shared by just 27% of whites.
However, 69% of voters still said US society is fair and decent, while only 20% think it is unfair and discriminatory.

  1. No surprise here…our community organizer was never about uniting, just dividing…

  2. I agree with those 20% who think life is unfair and discriminatory, Yep that’s right and we will never rest until my people get reparations!
    You hear that Steve I’m still waiting for my damn 40 acres and my mule, and don’t tell me it’s in the mail I just checked…Racist! 🙂

  3. Scoundrel! 🙂

  4. Wonder if the half naked lady on the light pole in front of her house ever came down?? She was gonna stay there til the “Fraud” paid her mortgage. that what he promised anyway.

  5. repatriation not reparations. dumbing down and race norming and accepting people into college based on their skin color must end now. affirmative action is a hate crime and should be ended now. the dispartiy of who fights and dies for are country must be equalized in the history of america’s wars blacks account for only 2% of combat deaths a pathetic 2%that means blacks owe white people a war debt of trillions of dollars or millions of lives. and 40 acres and a mule was general shermans attempt to get newly freed blacks to stop leaching from his supply lines during march to the sea. so if you want your 40 acres and a mule get a time machine and show up at the courthouse where said acres and a mule were distributed.
