Are they finally admitting that people will not vote for a black man for president? Are they finally admitting that people hold deep seated racist views that will not let them vote for a person they feel is part of a race that they find "lazy" and "violent"?
Read the article.
It is about time people are admitting this shit. It is about time people are not ignoring the fact that a lot of white people in this country have racist opinions and just will not allow themselves to support a black person even if that person holds their same political views.
Did they really need a poll to figure this out?
I'm not sure that a black person can be elected to high office...YET.ReplyDelete
Unfortunately, there are too many voters of my parent's generation-people who grew up with Jim Crow laws-who still think that way. I think that perhaps when those people aren't around any more things will change.
I can agree with you on that Kathy, but I also think that there are a lot of younger people that feel the same way. Most of the people I have heard make comments regarding race being a factor in the election have not been people who were of age in the times (I believe) you are referring to. Perhaps their family members have passed on their views, or perhaps they have developed them on their own through events/people in their lives. But I don't think that these opinions will fade as that generation leaves the earth.ReplyDelete
The year's at the spring,
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hillside's dew-pearled;
the lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in his heaven
All's right with the world!

I knew as soon as the Dem race was down to Hillary vs Obama that McCain was pretty much guaranteed to win. This country is both too racist and too sexist to catch up with the rest of the world. Even places like Pakistan have had women leaders. Though I don't know of any industrialized nations that have had an ethnic minority member as leader, but that's probably just poor education on my part.ReplyDelete
