Rasmussen Poll: More Americans View Blacks As Racist Than Whites Or Hispanics … Even Blacks Think Blacks are More Racist than Whites
I thought that racism was supposed to go away when Barack Obama was elected president?
The following is a rather eye opening poll from Rasmussen with regards to racism in the United States. The poll states that blacks are more likely to be racist that White or Hispanics, 37% of American adults think that most black Americans are racist, while just 15% consider most white Americans racist, while 18% consider most Hispanics racist. What might be the most interesting aspect of the poll is that a plurality, 31%, think most blacks are racist, while 24% consider most whites racist and 15% view most Hispanics that way. The LEFT wants to smear Rasmussen as right-wing in order to make claims the the poll is has no merit. However, what would one expect the polling data to be when the liberal MSM and race baiters in the US have all but allowed such “reverse” racism to go unpunished.
We need to look no further than the racially charged murder case of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin to see such actions. Rachel Jeantel took the stand for the prosecution and testified that Trayvon described the man following him [George Zimmerman] as a “creepy ass cracker”. Jeantel was asked whether that was a racial slur, she said no. Thus, we can see that if such a slur is not considered racial, then such racism is institutionalized within the culture.
Wasn’t Obama supposed to be the post-racial president?
