Poll: Majorities of Black and
White People Think They Get
Along Just Fine

Mediaite, by Eddie Scarry

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.

Tell it to a white child going to a majority black school. Tell it to the victim of a knockout game. Tell it to a white cop working an inner city neighborhood. Tell it to a business owner being extorted. The list could go on.

We do, at least in the circles I inhabit, but I guarantee that there are more "racists" now than there were in 2008. For good reason. A lot of eyes have been opened.

White are fed up with all the black crap.

Obama and his ilk have poisoned the well. I don´t believe there are that many blacks that want peace or to get along with other races.
Blacks hate themselves, other blacks and kill one another why should they like a white person, Asian or Hispanic?
I´ll stay out and away from their environment and they can stay away from mine. I don´t want to intermingle, understand, learn or be entertained by them. Blacks offer nothing to society of any value except what we are witnessing in Ferguson. Obama has washed any feelings, what little I had, for that race of people.

Of course we all get along pretty well but you can´t sell fear on that, which is why Obama and Holder and Jarrett have agitated for greater suspicion. And their campaign is working. Since 2009 race relations have deteriorated according to the poll.

The problem between the cultures exists when the Permanent Grievance Industry black culture insists that we tolerate criminals - that their race mitigates the crime. OJ trial anyone? Criminally corrupt black democrats re-elected time and time again. Marion Barry? Trayvon Martin - a thug - according to the Permanent Grievance Industry Black culture the white culture should just lay down and die if they are attacked.

These are not innocent people - Brown had just committed a crime when he decided to commit another by resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer. And they don´t back down when they realize their guy was in the wrong. They double down on stupid, deliberately in order to maintain strife.

Look at the numbers. The 3rd party always thinks that there is greater problem between the other 2 races. So more blacks think there is white-Hispanic race problem than Hispanics. More whites think there is a black-Hispanic race problem than Hispanics. And more Hispanics think there is black-white race problem than blacks. What this says to me is that much of the ´perceived´ racism is fueled by the MSM.

How you feel about that probably depends on where you live. In my city blacks make up less than 7% of the population.

The ones I know are good family people with the same values that I have.

However, if I lived in Ferguson, I´m sure I would have had a very different opinion of black people even before the riots.

#3 is on the mark. Do we mix or self-segregate?

We raised both our boys while living in a colored neighborhood. They were harassed on their school buses, but grew up pretty unbiased. That is, until one of them joined the Marine Corps and saw how mercilessly black Marine males dogged white Marine females.

The US is now composed of approximately 13% blacks, with non-Hispanic whites comprising most of the remaining population. Try to imagine what your life would be like if blacks were in the majority.... Better still, look at the stats from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Haiti.

The problem is who a group allows to become the spokesman and how much they bow to the bullies within their own ranks.

Every racial and ethnic group has members who are trashy. Such members always blame their problems on someone else. The unemployable black pot head blames the white man. The unemployable white meth head blames the blacks. The Mexican gang member blames the Gringos. The unemployable Chechen blames Western capitalism. The unemployable Palestinian blames the Jews. The unemployable Irish lout with his nose buried in a bottle blames the British. The list goes on and on.

Political opportunists feed this talk. One thing that has happened in the West is that our effete journalists consider the trash and their spokesmen more "authenitic" than the members of the group who live by the traditional civilized virtues.

Here´s the problem with these numbers.

45 million Blacks live in the US. About a third are unhappy with the way they are "treated" in the US. That´s 15 million people. 15 million unhappy people is a heck of a lot. Further, those people are not distributed evenly throughout the country. They are clustered around urban areas that suffer the most from "progressive" mismanagement, deepening the sense of grievance.

Black leadership beating the drums to agitate these 15 million is a real problem. I agree that Blacks are causing a lot of their own problems. The tolerance of inner city violence is an example. It´s not that the police couldn´t crack down but the communities do NOT want them to because it would require the perpetrators of the violence, mostly Blacks, to be arrested. The Black community refuses to support that. So they wallow in violence.

Despite that, millions of angry people is NOT a good situation for this country. BO could have done something to address this. He has not, one of the biggest failures of his presidency. Instead he has his AG grievance master fan the flames of anger.

Sad and scary.

Im 68 years old. When I was a kid, seeing a black and white couple, people were horrified. But there are so many now, that I just said to my husband how can the races hate each other so..when there are so many couples. The race baiters should be ashamed of themselves. Blacks should be ashamed of themselves for letting them get away with their race baiting.
We made a decision when we got married that the only way to stop discrimination was not to teach it to our kids, now 43,45. We didn´t. But we had perfect teaching examples, as my father-in-law was quite racist. Rather than stop him when he spoke that way, we would use it as a teaching example to show our children how wrong it was. As they got older, we would see them cringe as he spouted that crap.
My husband was in the Navy, and we wanted to go into business with the chef at the Officers Club,(I would still give my eye teeth for his pork and sauerkraut recipe..too young and stupid to just ask him) and had him and his family over to our house many times. In the early ´70,s, that was radical. But our children learned. We were there over 2 Christmases and we would have all his corpsmen (for 0 that´s pronounced core-men) over for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. Many were black.
Now the kids are grown, and no racism in them.

The Obama administration found itself on defense Friday after former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta criticized the White House for its policies on Iraq, with the State Department and others publicly disputing his claims. Panetta chided the president´s team in his forthcoming memoir, excerpts of which have been published in the media. He alleges the White House didn´t try hard enough to strike a deal with Iraq in 2011 to leave a residual force of U.S. troops behind, in turn opening the door for the region to become a haven for the Islamic State. In newly published excerpts, he also criticized

The dictionary defines nepotism as, “the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs.” It perhaps should come to no surprise to anyone even remotely aware of the ethical scandals permeating Democrats in the State Senate that a new scandal should emerge surrounding untoward hiring practices in the State Senate, and a cover-up by Senate Leadership. (More on that cover-up in a moment.) First I think it is important to recap that the Senate, as an institution, is clearly at an ethical low point.

Yasser Tabbaa, a specialist on Islamic art and architecture, remembers taking many trips to a 13th-century shrine dedicated to the Imam Awn al-Din, in Mosul in northern Iraq. The building was one of the few to survive Mongol invasion, never mind the destructive effects of weather and time. And this shrine had a stunning vaulted ceiling, like a honeycomb. “It is a beautiful pyramidal tower at the edge of the Tigris,” said Mr. Tabbaa, who taught at New York University Abu Dhabi and lives in Ann Arbor, Mich.

PRINCETON, IND. — President Obama on Friday credited his administration´s policies with helping to boost the economy and said the recovery is "real ... steady and happening." Speaking at a steel plant outside Evansville, Ind., on "Manufacturing Day," Obama touted the unemployment rate, which on Friday fell to 5.9 percent in September, the lowest number in six years. The report said the economy added 248,000 jobs in September. Obama said the country is "on pace" for the strongest job growth since the 1990s and experiencing the longest period of uninterrupted growth in U.S. history. Still, he acknowledged that the

The move was announced on Thursday, the day an American cameraman working for NBC News in Liberia became the first foreign journalist to test positive for Ebola. There was no indication that the new rules were related to that case. Growing international media interest in the outbreak that has killed nearly 2,000 people and infected 3,696 in Liberia has highlighted the challenges to the West African country´s healthcare system.

But on Friday, Hickerson and her fellow students were preoccupied with news of a possible case of Ebola virus being treated at the Howard University Hospital, which lies on the southern end of the Washington, D.C. school’s campus. Hickerson, who heard the news via social media, told TIME she was “shocked” by the news. “I didn’t expect [the virus] to spread so quickly,” Hickerson said.

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

On Wednesday, the ex-CNN talk show host wrote his first story as editor-at-large for the Daily Mail. While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
