“Blame deep-seated racism if Obama loses,” argues Sun-Times woman Deborah Douglas, who seems stuck in a pre-civil-rights movement past.
Pssst! I have a not-so-secret to tell you: America is no place for uppity black folks. At least that’s what I’ve been finding out lately.
Does she really think a white guy could have beat Hillary in the primary? Or, for that matter, that she’d be where she is if she were white?
The question arises, inevitably, in our race-preferential society, which has raised victimhood to an art form and laid guilt on non-black people — the younger, the more susceptible.
For more on this, see Coloring the News: How Crusading for Diversity Has Corrupted American Journalism, by William McGowan, a 2001 book.
In this piece, Douglas refers to “grass-chewing Southerners” who call blacks “uppity” and to herself as “a nappy-headed black woman.”
O. would be “way ahead if 40 percent of white Americans didn’t have negative views of African Americans,” she writes. “The Great American Gut Check won’t give Obama a break,” however, citing the recent
AP-Stanford University poll that validates what [she has] suspected: If Barack Obama doesn’t win in November, we can blame racism.
Yes, the poll:
“There are a lot fewer bigots than there were 50 years ago, but that doesn’t mean there’s only a few bigots,” said Stanford political scientist Paul Sniderman who helped analyze the exhaustive survey.
That might be so, by why did the study only address how the prejudices of whites are impacting the campaign while totally ignoring how racist feelings by blacks are entering the equation?
asked Noel Sheppard at News Busters.
My point exactly. What white candidate could count on 78% of the black vote in S. Carolina, for instance, as he did in the recent primary? Works both ways.
See Dennis Byrne for comments on same subject, including:
The poll finds that nine percent of all respondents said that Obama being the first black president would make them less likely to vote for him. Yes, this is wrong. But if you bother to read the survey’s next line, you find that another nine percent said that Obama being the first black president would make them more likely to vote for him.
The lady missed that point.
