CBS News/NY Times Poll: Race Relations Worst In Over Two Decades … 61% Call Race Relations in the US “BAD”



According to a new CBS News-New York Times poll, 61% of Americans characterize race relations in the United States as “bad.” Thanks to Barack Obama, the most decisive president ever, the first black elected president of the United States has actually made race relations in the US worse, rather than better. You should be so proud of yourself. This is what the Obama presidency has accomplished, the poll states that for the first time since 1997 a majorities of both white and black Americans believe race relations in the U.S. are poor. Obama is an abject failure. This man could have done so much for race relations in the United States, he could have bridged the divide like Nelson Mandela did in South Africa between whites and blacks, but instead, because of his radical left agenda, his hateful black theology teachings and a religious mentor like Rev. Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright, Barack Obama has made race relations worse in the US. This will forever he Obama’s legacy.

Is it any wonder why Barack Obama has created the worst race relations in two decades … It appears Obama was listening in the pews to his mentor Rev. Jeremiah Wright

A new poll released Monday indicated that Americans believe race relations are at their worst in more than two decades.

The CBS News/New York Times poll said 61 percent of Americans characterize race relations in the U.S. as “bad,” including a majority of white and black respondents. The figure is the highest since 1992.

A total of 79 percent of African-Americans believe police are more likely to use deadly force against a black person than against a white person, while 53 percent of whites believe race does not play a role, the survey said.

Black respondents were also more likely than white respondents to believe their local police make them feel anxious rather than safe, the poll said.

Obama_the great divider

This was also the first time since 1997 that majorities of both white and black Americans believe race relations in the U.S. are poor, the poll said. Opinions among white Americans have grown sharply more negative in the poll even compared with earlier this year – with 62 percent of whites saying race relations are bad compared with just 35 percent in February.

Black respondents have historically had a more negative view than white respondents about race relations, but the level of pessimism is now similar, according to the poll.

Also, fewer than one in five white Americans think race relations are getting better – with 44 percent responding that relations are getting worse and 37 percent saying they’re staying about the same.

Most respondents – 64 percent of whites and 57 percent of blacks – thought the unrest in Baltimore following Gray’s death was not justified, the poll said.

This poll isn’t much better than the Bloomberg poll in 2014.

Dr. Ben Carson, who just announced that he was running for president for 2016, previously stated in November 2014 that race relations were better prior to President Barack Obama. He said that things have gotten worse because of Obama’s manipulation of minority communities

      obama is the great divider, our race relations are poor and he made it that way as well as everything he has done to the US. He listened to rev wright’s mentoring for over 25 yrs and believed in it. He still does! They are evil men!

      if the government gives it’s minorities just enough welfare and food stamps to buy cigarettes, alcohol, and drugs , they are content to let the white man support them. this goes for the lazy white people too. I’ve seen plenty of them.
      the democrats have run on this platform since the 60′s and have created this plague.
      sure they can hikt the streets and protest, they don’t work, pay taxes, and provide nothing to our economy. they may even be paid by the government to protest and riot. after all, look at our government, they are just as lazy and no different then the government dependents.

      A real charlatan sits in the office of President of the United States. A man who sold the country on the platitude of “Hope and Change”. His “Hope and Change” program turned out to be the very Socialist program that he listened to for twenty years in the pews of Reverend Wright’s church.

      Black people comprise approximately 13 percent of the total population. If one were to look at the value they contribute to the country vs the value their behavior takes away from the country, the negative results would be astounding.

      Most of our local LE costs in cities are caused by blacks who refuse to behave themselves and obey the social mores that make up a civil society.
