|Conservatives and White supremacists, one in the same!|
The USA Today reports that an Associated Press poll shows that racial attitudes have not improved in the four years since the United States elected its first black president. [The] Associated Press poll finds, as a slight majority of Americans now express prejudice toward blacks whether they recognize those feelings or not.
Racial prejudice has increased slightly since 2008 whether those feelings were measured using questions that explicitly asked respondents about racist attitudes, or through an experimental test that measured implicit views toward race without asking questions about that topic directly.
In all, 51% of Americans now express explicit anti-black attitudes, compared with 48% in a similar 2008 survey. When measured by an implicit racial attitudes test, the number of Americans with anti-black sentiments jumped to 56%, up from 49% during the last presidential election. In both tests, the share of Americans expressing pro-black attitudes fell.
"As much as we'd hope the impact of race would decline over time ... it appears the impact of anti-black sentiment on voting is about the same as it was four years ago," said Jon Krosnick, a Stanford University professor who worked with AP to develop the survey.
Most Americans expressed anti-Hispanic sentiments, too. In an AP survey done in 2011, 52% of non-Hispanic whites expressed anti-Hispanic attitudes. That figure rose to 57% in the implicit test. The survey on Hispanics had no past data for comparison.
The AP surveys were conducted with researchers from Stanford University, the University of Michigan and NORC at the University of Chicago.
Experts on race said they were not surprised by the findings.
We at Journal de la Reyna aren't surprised either. If you see how many Americans online react to the issues involving the first Black president, you would think these people were calling a "NIGGER"!
Other than the many word salads they vomit in the public arena, conservatives are primal in their aggressive tone towards President Barack Obama.
Where there's no controversy, a conservative agitator in the media will create one and the people who listen to this stuff constantly will repeat this stuff, word for word!
Here's a few of the anti-Black images you'll find online and in the public forum.
