On October 29, 2012 I read an Associated Press article by Sonya Ross. It the paper I read it in it was entitled Study: Bigotry Alive and well. It dealt with what the author labeled as bigotry from only the perspective of white bigotry. Ross stated that: “Racial attitudes have not improved in the four years since the United States elected its first black president, an Associated Press poll finds, as a slight majority of Americans now express prejudice toward blacks whether they recognize those feelings or not.”
She went on to say that “Those views could cost President Barack Obama votes as he tries for re-election, the survey found…Racial prejudice has increased slightly since 2008 …In all, 51% of Americans now express explicit anti-black attitudes, compared with 48% in a similar 2008 survey.” There is more, but it is mostly along this line. You can translate this as follows: “you are a racist if you don’t vote for Obama.” Shorn of all the sophistry that is basically what she is saying. Racial prejudice could cost Obama the election.
She also takes another whack at white folks, noting that 52% of “non-Hispanic whites expressed anti-Hispanic attitudes.” And the translation of that little gem is “you are a racist if you don’t like illegal immigrants.” This lady is expressing the old Marxist class struggle message whether she realizes it or not. But after all, this lady is part of the “news” media so we should, by now, expect little else from the “useful idiots” of the press.
The survey or poll she took this from may even be accurate as far as it went, but let’s think for a minute about what the poll did not cover (probably purposely).
What is the percentage of anti-white prejudice by blacks? How many blacks will vote for Obama strictly because of his skin color without having the least clue of where he stands on issues that will affect them and their children? How many will bother to take the time and effort to check out his views and where they come from before voting? Or will his skin color be enough to garner him their votes without any further qualifications needed or wanted?
Now that would be an interesting poll if we had accurate numbers. You might find that lots of blacks vote for a black man because they are prejudiced against whites. Does that make them racists? I can see the college professors now, tearing out their hair at even the thought of such a question. “Oh no” they will chant, “Only whites can be racists, No one else has that power or ability.” To which I would reply—well, maybe it’s better if I bite my tongue and don’t say it.
The thing that really bothered me about this poll was that they only took into account the bias of white folks and no one else, as if only white folks have prejudice regarding race. Anyone with a brain knows that’s not remotely close to the truth.
I remember when we lived in West Virginia, how my kids came home one afternoon and told my wife and I that the black kids they had been playing with told them they were not human because they were not black. Where do you suppose those black kids picked up that sentiment—possibly at home? And if you really want racist rhetoric you should read some of the things said by Mr. Obama’s friends in the New Black Panther Party—oh, sorry I keep forgetting—whatever such groups say no matter how racist it sounds, it’s not really racist because they aren’t white.
If I didn’t know better, I’d say this kind of thing demonstrated a gigantic double standard by such people—do as I say, not as I do, the pot calling the kettle black and all that, but that is not really the case.
These people are practitioners of Marxist truth, which I dealt with in an earlier article. Remember, to the Marxist, whatever furthers his agenda is “truth” and everything else, even if based on fact, is a lie. Dealing with white prejudice and not bothering to deal with black prejudice constitutes Marxist truth.
You can learn how to play this little game once you understand the rules. Whites are all racists; blacks can never be racist—unless, for some reason the Party line changes—then all bets are off.
If you want a little different viewpoint than that given in the managed media do a
Google search on “black bias against whites.”
