"Yes, because that would make as much sense as believing all republicans are 80% of republicans."


Which no doubt makes perfect sense
to many  Democrats.

John, are you one of those democrats then?  Because I notice that it's your arguments, and only yours, that are attributing the attitudes of the 80% to the 100%.

If you don't like racism, you should be one of the republicans working to get it out of your party instead of denying, deflecting, and defending.

Check out the actions of the past 60 years, LR, and then tell us which party was more instrumental in helping blacks and which one was against.

Almost gotta hand it to democrats. They keep pointing fingers and screaming about the right being racist, hoping that no one actually takes the time to investigate their own past.

Obama was hired because he was black.
He will be fired because he is incompetent.

I took the poll and thank goodness I wasn't determined to be a racist even though I am a Republican.  I did answer the questions truthfully to the best of my ability because I was interested in what the results would be.

It might be noted the poll results on their face do not show racism.  To get the results, the results are interpreted to determine "unconscious feelings" in regards to race.

The first half of the test consists solely of questions to determine if your political views are aligned towards Democrats or Republicans.  You also indicate who you have previously voted for and will vote for in the future.

Then you have what I would consider to be some really top-notch intellectual type questions.

"It’s really a matter of some people just not trying hard enough; if blacks would only try harder, they could just be as well off as whites.”  agree or disagree

or...  “Irish, Italians, Jewish, and other minorities overcame prejudice and worked their way up. Blacks should do the same without special favors.”   agree or disagree?   I haven't beat my wife recently either.

But the meat of the poll is to be shown photographs of caucasions intermixed with photgraphs of blacks along with good and bad words and then to push either the k or l key on your computer as quickly as possible in different combinations changing the relationship of black to white to good and bad words.

Apparently how fast you push the appropriate key in the appropiate combination of photograph and word establishes your degree of racism.  Either I am not a racist or I am a pretty good key puncher.

Other academic research has come to starkedly different conclusions on the degree of racism in the United States.  (Maybe they had you push different keys on the computer).

In any event, I do not find it surprising the results were as found and the fact the poll was released by organization it was at the time it was in relation to the election.  

Does racism exist in the U.S.? Of course. There is a small minority of kooks on both ends of the political spectrum. If you are a Republican does that automaticaly make you a racist?  Only in the eyes of the far left in the Democratic party and polls interpreted by biased organizations.

Let's decide the election on the issues.

Mike,  60 years ago there were these fellows named Eisenhower and Rockefeller.  They would be drubbed out of today's Republican party.  There were also these fellows called Dixicrats.  What we 've been trying to get you, and other Republicans to recognize for years now, is that those fellows left the Democratic party and have aligned themselves with this thing that's now called the Republican party which began as a result of johnson's signing of the civil rights act, and congruently with Nixon's Southern Strategy.  

Tim, you can blame the test, blame the messenger, blame the Democrats, and blame science if you want.  Oh, yeah, it's that last word that's the problem.

60 years ago Republicsns believed in science.

Quite the myopic view of the past, LR. I could show you why....but why waste the time when you know it as well as I? Besides, you would probably call it racial.

Jay Leno once asked Dolly Parton how she felt about dumb blonde jokes.  She said they didn't bother her because she's not dumb or blonde.

Interesting results indeed.
