Some of the other answers make you shake your head as well.

LOL. I have seen some pseudo-science before, but this is basically all pseudo and no science. That is hilarious.

Reminds me of that stupid category-sorting “test” to see if you’re racist where you’re told to sort good/bad value judgments and pictures of blacks/whites into left/right columns

Edit: but I wouldn’t be all that surprised if about close to half of whites harbor some racist attitudes toward blacks, given the ingrained believes of lots of older folks.

That’s why millions upon millions of those over the age of 55 voted for obama.

You have to stop thinking like you do it’s actually racist.

This is from the “Nation” LOL.

They have to start beating the racist drum card because Obama is in a tight race.

Democratic strategist #1 “Hey I know what we can do”

Dem Strategist #2 “What’s that?”

#1 “Time to gin up the white guilt by accusing people of being racist…that should get Obama a few more votes”

#2 “Excellent! I’ll make some phone calls…it’ll work like magic.”

And millions didn’t. Or do you have some data to prove me wrong?

And by the way, voting for Obama and harboring some underlying negative attitudes toward blacks as a group of people are not mutually exclusive.

My thoughts exactly. A Soviet mouthpiece during the Cold War. They have been wrong about EVERYTHING yet continue to publish bullshit unashamedly.

I thought it was the onion at first.

It actually sounds like a dumbed down version of a test that I think Harvard runs that Gladwell talks about in one of his books that claims to show that most of us blacks included associate good things more with whites and bad things more with blacks.

Part of the same book was the fact of self identifying as black on a standardized test led to a downward swing in performance on the test.

I think it was Blink.

The poll was done by the AP I believe I just linked a Nation article about it.

Where is your data to prove that the ones who didn’t vote for Obama did so because they were racists?

Here’s a clue for you…it won’t work this time around!

And intelligent life on other planets is also possible and just as provable.

Honestly you guys are joke.

The onion is more credible.

I can see the questions now:

Should black criminals be punished? Yes. Anti-Black views for this one.

Other findings, when you drill down: 23 percent consider Obama ?socialist? and 18 percent call him ?un-American.? Some 33 percent ID him as Protestant or Catholic with 10 percent calling him Muslim?and 18 percent saying he is Jewish. [/quote]
18% Jewish?

…I haven’t even heard that one - are they serious?

I have to say, I’ve been troubled by how many of my black friends seem to be so supportive of Obama simply because he IS black.[/quote]

Wow what a shocker!

If a white republican had done to the black population what Obama has done they would scream for his impeachment.

This is one of the reasons people are cracking up about this “study”. The survey was online, and there’s no telling how many people thought it would be hilarious to say they believed Barack was a Jew and whatever other answers they found humorous for the sake of messing with the data. They basically just scientifically discovered “trolling”. Lol.

Take away message - you might be racist, even if you are unaware of it, and you might have become a racist in between the years 2008 and 2012.

Idiotic. And just a self-serving “study” to provide some cover as to an Obama loss, should it happen - no, it can never be based on policy, competence, executive decision-making, or anything else substantive - it has to be based on some nefarious external factor, like racism…even though it turns out, Obama was black when he ran for office in 2008 and won decisively.

This harkens back to the days of the 2004 election, when there was just “no way” for Bush to have won legitimately - it had to be conspiratorial voting machines, etc.

Agreed with Double Duce - I though this was from the Onion.
