    Poll: Racial views steer some away from Obama
    One-third of polled white Democrats harbor negative views toward blacks

    updated 17 minutes ago
    WASHINGTON - Deep-seated racial misgivings could cost Barack Obama the White House if the election is close, according to an AP-Yahoo News poll that found one-third of white Democrats harbor negative views toward blacks many calling them "lazy," "violent" or responsible for their own troubles.

    The poll, conducted with Stanford University, suggests that the percentage of voters who may turn away from Obama because of his race could easily be larger than the final difference between the candidates in 2004 about two and one-half percentage points.

    Certainly, Republican John McCain has his own obstacles: He's an ally of an unpopular president and would be the nation's oldest first-term president. But Obama faces this: 40 percent of all white Americans hold at least a partly negative view toward blacks, and that includes many Democrats and independents.

    'Less likely to vote for Obama'
    More than a third of all white Democrats and independents voters Obama can't win the White House without agreed with at least one negative adjective about blacks, according to the survey, and they are significantly less likely to vote for Obama than those who don't have such views.

    Here's a chart that goes along with the article posted above.

    Considering that THESE are some of the biggest names among black Americans today - I'm surprised the survey didn't find white people thinking MORE blacks were complaining and/or non-intelligent.

    And then there are these 'winners'.
    Liars and pervs.







    - that's Al Sharpton doing a little jig in the first picture.

    The black leadership in this country is pathetic.
    Either that, or it's a good representation of black Americans.
    Which is it?
    Apparently, as shown by the survey, at the very least white americans think those idiots represent black America.

    Perhaps they do. Who knows.

    Of course - having many of the teenagers and young adults run around with their pants hanging off - and calling people who don't like it 'idiot crackers' (one thread here discussed that) - it's not surprising that many non-blacks see black people as lazy and irresponsible and not smart in school (if they go at all) - and undependable - and complaining - and in general NOT WANTING TO FIT IN.

    You could do that same poll with whites and get the same answers. The only racial group that wouldn't get a negative response is Asian, thanks to Jackie Chan. :p

    I bet if blacks were polled about whites, they'd give whites even worse numbers.
    Betchya.

    That's because those darn blacks are always 'complaining'.
    (just like the poll says!) :p

    Nice try on the diversion putz.

    Those are your people. Well, not exactly "your people" if you are to be believed but your people nonetheless.
    Be Not Afraid.
