The George Zimmerman trial has put racism at the forefront once again – and especially when a key prosecution witness testifies that Trayvon Martin called George Zimmerman a “creepy ass cracker”. The usual double standard was at play when liberals immediately jumped on the bandwagon that it was not a racist comment. I’ll leave each of you to figure that one out for yourself.
Earlier today I was reading an article on the Daily Caller Website – it shared interesting results about how the various races and political parties feel about racism in America. But one additional piece of information I’d like to know – is what part of the country the people are in. Just to give some additional depth to the survey results.
Majority of Americans feel blacks are more racist than whites and Hispanics
A newly released Rasmussen Report indicates that on average Americans consider black Americans to be more racist than whites and Hispanics.
Ideology seemingly plays a large role in public on this issue. Among conservatives, 49 percent consider blacks to be more racist compared to 27 percent of liberals. Twelve percent of conservatives and 27 percent of liberals say whites are more racist.
The partisan perspective shows a similar trend with 49 percent of Republicans and only 29 percent of Democrats saying blacks are more racist. Thirty-six percent of unaffiliated adults feel this way as well.
