Most Americans Prejudiced Against Blacks

Picture: "Confederate till Death" (CC)

Bad news for “post-racial” America:

Via the Associated Press:

Racial prejudice has increased slightly since 2008 whether those feelings were measured using questions that explicitly asked respondents about racist attitudes, or through an experimental test that measured implicit views toward race without asking questions about that topic directly.

In all, 51 percent of Americans now express explicit anti-black attitudes, compared with 48 percent in a similar 2008 survey. When measured by an implicit racial attitudes test, the number of Americans with anti-black sentiments jumped to 56 percent, up from 49 percent during the last presidential election. In both tests, the share of Americans expressing pro-black attitudes fell.

  1. Anything that tries to take from white privilege brings out racism, like social health care and welfare that tries to balance the races with funding. Sure some people abuse the system, but most people truly need the subsidization of the basics to come out of poverty. I guess its hard to let go of that old blood money and power. What a shame; people love to express their inferior aspects but when its time to shine most shy away.

        and now there are 4. the truth is bitterly painful

      • It could only be outright racism right? No one would think “white privilege” is a stupid concept, unless they wore a white suit at night and burned crosses, right? I mean any random white person living in a trailer and working in the service industry for just over minimum wage should be filled with guilt and self loathing for being so privileged.

        • Fortunately there seems to be a never-ending supply of upper middle class college grads on hand to remind these inbred white-trash rednecks just how privileged they are.

        • You know I’m not talking about whites that are not privileged but If you lived where I lived, you would see what I am talking about and why it’s a problem. The mindless self indulgence is easy to see. A lot of racist red necks might not be privileged but damn sure want to be and act like they are privileged. Don’t take it personal if you are not part of the problem but if the boot fits, wear it.

            “You know I’m not talking about blacks that are not violent criminals, but if you lived where I lived, you would see what I am talking about and why its a problem”

          • Plenty of violence from both races. I live in a predominantly black neighborhood and only the thug wanna be’s act hard and these include latinos and white guys, they made a cultural choice. I guess white racists are wanna be elites. Racism is all around and you solve nothing by trivializing my comment. We are talking about unjustified racism not crime rates in high crime areas.

          • Justin Walker | Oct 30, 2012 at 10:57 am |

            I wonder if it’s still racist to understand and accept there are differences in cultures within the framework of an American culture or ‘western’ culture. I know I am different than my co-workers that come from and still live in the projects, but we both consider ourselves American and have large portions of our culture that is a shared culture. Should I consider myself racist if I dislike or disagree with parts of their culture that I find objectionable? Am I racist if I want to encourage them to embrace the larger American culture? I see a generational difference among people, those over forty still tend on the large part to judge based solely on skin color those under forty tend to judge based on observed actions and expressed ideas.

          • if it feels racist, its is probably racist

      • I’m going to take this opportunity to bitch about the new disqus interface.

        I don’t like it and I suspect that it has adversely affected the “sense of community” on Disinfo.

        There are a number of small annoyances that I won’t delve into, but I will detail my two major complaints, one of which is actually related to your comment.

        First, previously you could see who “liked” a story/article. When pressed for time, checking to see who “liked” a story would occasionally help me prioritize. More importantly, it helped to give me a sense of individuals’ interests.

        Second, and more directly related to your comment Mr. Howe, is the fact that I no longer seem to be able to determine who liked a particular comment.

        In the past I could see who agreed with a particular comment. That was useful for the same reason that being able to see who liked an article was useful, but even more important for developing a sense of the personalities of the people here in Disinfo.

        I’m definitely concerned that something important was lost with the new format.

        • Jin The Ninja | Oct 29, 2012 at 12:34 pm |

          • Matt Staggs | Oct 29, 2012 at 2:20 pm |

            Those are good points. That being said, it’s nice that fewer legitimate comments are getting caught in the spam folder and that we can actually read all the comments in a comment tree without squinting.

          • Jin The Ninja | Oct 29, 2012 at 3:37 pm |

            yes, i like the lay out; it is much improved. i really do though dislike not be able to see who liked or disliked comments.,

          • Hadrian999 | Oct 29, 2012 at 6:08 pm |

            HATE not seeing who like and dislike comments

        • Calypso_1 | Oct 29, 2012 at 12:40 pm |

          Also in being able to see who liked comments, if it was a new user, it enables one to engage them specifically, thus opening up the possibility of bringing in new commenters to the community.

        • TennesseeCyberian | Oct 29, 2012 at 1:22 pm |

          Now it’s like a dark room in some German sex club where the only way you know who’s next to you is the sound of their voice. The whole thing just feels dirty to me.

  2. So 79 percent of Republicans explicitly expressed racial prejudice, yet only 64 percent of them hold anti-black feelings? Does that mean 15 percent of them hate other races but not blacks, or are just going along with their party?

  3. BuzzCoastin | Oct 28, 2012 at 8:02 pm |

    look at the US prison stats
    most prisoners are dark skinned minorities
    they are disproportionately over represented in the prison population
    and under represented in the political establishment

    how a Black man from god knows where
    got elected Prez of Der Homeland
    is a mystery only to the psyop impaired

  4. TennesseeCyberian | Oct 28, 2012 at 9:19 pm |

    How big was the sample population?

    2,228 in 2008, then 1,071 in 2012 (Edit: less than 70% of which was “white”). Does this small sampling take into account the regional variations of sentiments toward people of other races (Edit: 37% of respondents were from the South, only 18% from the Northeast)?

    And finally, why didn’t these poll results include the feelings of blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and Native Americans? (Edit: The polls DO take that into account. So far as I can tell, the results are combined from all respondents, who were 67% white and 12% black–roughly proportionate to the US population.)

    Breakdown here:

    What would the results look like if the responses were separated by race?

    [Heavily edited in light of my perusal of the topline]

    • Is that bad? Its not good! | Oct 28, 2012 at 9:42 pm |

      It would look just as bad on any race but the reality of the situation is that racist whites (not all whites) are the major cause of the problem with racism. It seems like its a reaction formation stemming from an incorrectly perceived threat from fellow races and their solution seems to be to either, kill, enslave or create poverty for all other races to subdue the threat. Killing every other race would end racism but it would also end diversity. Would another race hypothetically become just as racist if they found themselves in the power position? Possibly. But we don’t know that for sure and its no excuse to indulge in these destructive memes in fear of something that most likely wont happen. These are misguided people and letting racism continue from any race is beyond unacceptable since it is so destructive and simply crude.

      • “the reality of the situation is that racist whites (not all whites) are the major cause of the problem with racism.”

        Interesting you mention that. This is from the poll’s details (of which the respondents’ races were in proportion to their representation of the US population–i.e., not all white):

        Page 25:

        “How much of the racial tension that exists in the United States today do you think blacks are responsible for creating?”

        20% said “Most” in 2010, 24% said “Most” in 2012.

        Same question asked about “whites”:

        22% said “Most” in 2010, 19% said “Most” in 2012.

        As for “Hispanics,” only 8% said “Most” in either year. The vast majority said “Some” in response to all races.

        As much as I hate to, I am inclined to agree with the vast majority on this one.

        Also, anyone claiming that racist whites are somehow more responsible than racist blacks for the race problems of America should have a look at the National Crime Victimization Survey, Tables 40 and 42:
        Should be an eye-opener, unless you believe that victims have some racist motive for lying about who robbed or raped them.

        • Def not good | Oct 29, 2012 at 2:46 am |

          Just the fact that the statistics are separated by race makes this racist and bias. It does not take stats to see what is right in front of everyone’s eyes. Most whites are fine and great people but for some reason the one that happen to be racism keep driving racism to new heights

          • TennesseeCyberian | Oct 29, 2012 at 3:10 am |

          • Really not good | Oct 29, 2012 at 5:00 am |

            Is this a personal attack? You seem so eloquent in your other posts and you drop only two sentences on me? My English is fine and easy to understand, since I don’t resort to obscure words to get my point across. Having to type on my iPhone because the storm took out my power makes me appear less than capable when it comes to the English language but I assure you, it’s a temporary hindrance to my productivity, I’ll be on full steam once the anging electrical infrastructure is patched up. Just don’t try to justify racism, own up to the problem in your daily interactions and solve it , simple no skilled involved at all. By the way I speak two languages and have an awesome mustache.

          • TennesseeCyberian | Oct 29, 2012 at 11:17 am |

            No, I honestly was not making a personal attack. It was this line that threw me off:

            ” for some reason the one that happen to be racism keep driving racism to new heights”

            But I know how smart phones can stupify a body’s comments, especially using Disqus. You can see that it deleted my name from one of my comments above.

          • Now it's kinda good | Oct 29, 2012 at 1:06 pm |

            Thanks for the concern, shit is getting real windy but I am prepared. By new heights I mean the newer generations also are indoctrinated into racist ideologies. But bro I’ve read your post on this site, you have great understanding about a lot of topics and I am sure you understand racism and don’t need me to explain to you. Why don’t you write us a counter argument instead of just dropping stats? I know it’s hard to be inspired sometimes and this topic is not the most inspiring. But don’t argue with me send a message to everyone.

          • TennesseeCyberian | Oct 29, 2012 at 2:13 pm |

            Okay, you asked for it:

            In my day-to-day life, I do my best to look at the content of a person’s character, not the color of his or her skin. I find it very unhelpful when blame for society’s ills is placed in totality upon any ethnic, religious, or cultural group. There is so much variation within these groups, the collective brush is too broad to paint a clear picture.

            Our country has seen slavery. So has the entire planet. Euros, Africans, Arabs, and Asians have all been slaveowners. Slavery isn’t a white thing.

            Most whites in antebellum America–even the antebellum South–were not slaveowners. And besides, we ended slavery in America a century and a half ago. We desegregated half a century ago. This process has been tumultuous, and we are a long way from stabilizing.

            These wild decades have seen Klan rallies on the one hand, and the rise of black artists and intellectuals on the other. But they have also revealed the better angels of the white devils’ nature, and the dark side of former slaves–in other words: our common humanity.

            Today, white racists in the upper classes are a problem because they are characteristically stingy and defensive, and their police are too heavy-handed. Black racists are a problem because they are increasingly greedy and their rhetoric fuels violent thugs who frequently target whites.

            Looking at whites and blacks, the rich and the poor, there is no equivalence, only parallels. But it is clear to me that the problem of social cohesion along racial lines is rooted in both white resistence and black resentment.

            There is nothing to be gained by demonizing whites or sanctifying blacks, or vice versa. That is my beef. And as it turns out, this was not a short version of my perspective.

            [Edited to expand certain points]

          • Now its good | Oct 29, 2012 at 3:17 pm |

            I agree, the problem is very complex and demonizing whites is also a problem. I just wish it would go away. I am not going to give a bigger response because I dont want to offend any innocent white people that read the site and I have to ponder the subject a little more to give an unbiased educated response and given the current weather conditions, I can’t really find the focus. Lets agree that racism is lame and people need to fix the inferior elements inside themselves. All the best, keep writing.

      thanks for bringing those potholes to light. This could be just a flimsy study to confirm what everybody already knows: that Satan loves racism, and he is growing more powerful in America.

      • TennesseeCyberian | Oct 29, 2012 at 1:41 am |

        Say, what’s with all this “Satan” business? I mean, if anybody would be into racism, I’d imagine Satan to be one of the cats driving the scene, but wouldn’t you say that the Council of Conservative Citizens, the NAACP, and the Council of La Raza would be more conspicuous

        • kowalityjesus | Oct 29, 2012 at 7:37 am |

          It is somewhat simplistic, but outer pollution generally reflects inner pollution. People with polluted minds are prone to exploitation by dark forces. Dark forces exploit any shallow impulse of our animalic minds to ridicule and overshadow our Godly image. All dark forces call Satan their master. Hence, a low-quality individual who has a racist sentiment (i.e. does not recognize every man as his brother), while not necessarily working directly for Satan engenders his shallow ideals and gives him a low hearty laugh and a jab at God. Just my theory based loosely on the texts I’ve read. Remember: the greatest lie the Devil ever told is that he doesn’t exist.

          • “All dark forces call Satan their master.”

            Not so much…

          • Calypso_1 | Oct 29, 2012 at 1:27 pm |

            Indeed. Isn’t the whole idea of ‘dark’ forces as evil inherently racist? Or at the very least, it certainly has been used to fuel racial ideologies.

          • TennesseeCyberian | Oct 29, 2012 at 2:19 pm |

            Satanists of color around the world agree: Satan is indeed a “dark force.”

            Interesting. I can’t disprove you, and I don’t suppose I’d have any reason to. I see things in a similar way, though not in similar terms. Even though Anton LaVey publicly denounced racism, he only had one black friend that I am aware of:


            Racism is tribalism. Tribalism is an animal instinct. And what do Satanists revere above all else in the human soul? You guessed it.

            So maybe you’re onto something.

          • Matt Staggs | Oct 29, 2012 at 2:23 pm |

            I’m obligated to mention that LaVey wasn’t a Biblical Satanist and had no belief in Satan as an actual entity. LaVey was more like Ayn Rand in a black cape. 😉

          • TennesseeCyberian | Oct 29, 2012 at 2:52 pm |

            I spent my teens steeped in LaVey. I guess my comment was worded in a misleading way. What I meant is that some neuroscientists claim that racism is rooted in the primal core of our brains, and according to LaVey, Satan is the anthropomorphized expression of that primal source of energy and inspiration.

            So in that sense, maybe kowalityjesus is onto something when he/she says, “Satan loves racism, and he is growing more powerful in America.”

            I don’t know if this is true, but I remember reading an interview with LaVey’s daughter in which she claimed that Anton privately came to believe that Satan is actually a conscious entity. I’ll try to Google it, but that might be a tricky one.

          • TennesseeCyberian | Oct 29, 2012 at 3:06 pm |

            Because of this page, a Google search of “Zeena LaVey” brings up a picture of Taylor Swift:


          • TennesseeCyberian | Oct 29, 2012 at 4:00 pm |

            It wasn’t an interview with Zeena, it was an excerpt of her letter to Aquino:

            “My unfather should never have carelessly tampered with the authentic forces of darkness that he now idiotically believes are his own creation.”


            This has been interpreted to say that LaVey was once a theistic Satanist. A close reading of the letter reveals this statement, however:

            “I have never seen any evidence that he honestly believes in the force whom he has for so long exploited as a ‘good gimmick’.”

            Apparently, I was mistaken.

            [Edited for clarity]

          • Your comment displays both a prejudice against Satan and a bias towards God.

          • kowalityjesus | Oct 30, 2012 at 8:12 am |

          • most likely | Oct 29, 2012 at 4:24 pm |

            Its the reptile brain. That is the satan you speak of. A lot of religion is cryptic psychology and neuroscience and the rest of religion is still metaphysics and will only be truly understood as time passes. But satan (reptile brain) and God (right brain) live in juxtaposition inside of us along side with the flawed but dominant scientist human (left brain). When these subdivision are not working in unison we get these problems. I am reading about this sort of thing in my current studies. Man is not just one inside.

    prejudice takes root easily in america and once it takes hold it is hard to root out. outside of urban areas populations are very heterogeneous. we love enclaves here. when you don’t have real daily contact with people it’s far too easy to see them as types not as people. I come from a mostly white Midwestern small town, i have prejudices because of how i was raised. I try to examine and combat them when i notice them pop up but they are still there. unless we as a nation actively examine and combat prejudice it will persist. sadly many people have an interest in keeping racism and prejudice strong.

  6. TennesseeCyberian | Oct 29, 2012 at 1:55 am |

    To Matt Staggs:

    Isn’t the KKK graphic misleading? Have a look at pg. 18-23 of the survey’s details:

    As I’ve already mentioned, the respondents’ races are proportional to the US population–not all white. The negative “prejudice” against blacks is also harbored against whites to a lesser degree. Taking examples from the article, respondents checked “Moderately well” to “Extremely well” for “How well do these words describe most [people in this racial group]”:

    Violent: Blacks: 43% – Whites: 37%
    Lazy: Blacks: 37% – Whites: 37% (Hispanics: 30%)

    Respondents were harsher toward blacks in their negative responses to these points, checking “Slightly well” to “Not at all” as follows:

    Friendly: Blacks: 20% – Whites: 11%
    Hardworking: Blacks: 25% – Whites: 10% (Hispanics: 11%)

    The largest disparities were in these categories, looking at the negative side (i.e., from “Slightly well” to “Not at all”):

    Law abiding: Blacks: 31% – Whites: 12%
    Good neighbors: Blacks: 24% – Whites: 9%
    Keep up their property: Blacks: 30% – Whites: 10%

    Interestingly, whites are judged to be the bitchest race (from “Moderately well” to “Extremely well”):

    Complaining Blacks: 49% – Whites: 53%

    Are these responses the result of “prejudice” or past experiences? Since there is no racial breakdown of the respondents available, how do we know that blacks didn’t respond negatively toward blacks, or whites toward whites?

    Given the above details, don’t you think the Klan photo is biased and a little hyperbolic?

    • Matt Staggs | Oct 29, 2012 at 8:01 am |

      No, given the article is about racist feelings among whites.

      • TennesseeCyberian | Oct 29, 2012 at 11:13 am |

        Interesting you say that, because the article never once attributes these “anti-black” feelings to whites. Not once. It is implied–since everybody knows that only whites can be racist–especially given the breakdown of Republicans and Democrats, but never once is it made explicit whether white, black, or Hispanic respondents held the strongest “anti-black” sentiment.
        I wonder why.

        Your picture, however, is about racist feelings among whites. That’s my point.

        • Matt Staggs | Oct 29, 2012 at 1:03 pm |

          OH? I suppose you’re right. My mistake. No, i don’t feel in the least bit bad about running the Klan photo. They’re the first anti-black racist group who came to mind. Screw ’em.

          • TennesseeCyberian | Oct 29, 2012 at 1:16 pm |

            It’s not the Klan I’m worried about. It is obvious that they are (practically non-existent) assholes–the proctocolectomies of racism! My concern is for the vast bulk of whites who are falsely accused of “racism” for political, social, and ideological advantage.

            The study in question used a bizarre experiment to uncover implicit racial bias. They flashed a person’s picture (black, white, or Hispanic) next to a Chinese character. Then they asked the respondent to rate their feelings toward the Chinese character.

            Your Klan photo looks an awful lot like a test subject’s rating of a Chinese character.

      • You live in Mississippi with a bunch of rednecks. I grew up in the North and experienced racial prejudice against me in the Army on the part of blacks that hated me for being white. These were NCO’s that had a position of power over me and other white enlisted men.

        I don’t really care that much about it, like I have a vendetta or something. I also had some black NCO’s that were cool. But the Army in the 1990’s was pretty segregated. The older NCO’s said it was less segregated in the 1970’s. I think it was self segregation. A lot of the black enlisted men were really prejudiced against whites. I hadn’t experienced that before. But I hadn’t experienced rednecks from the South talking about the Civil War either whenever they got drunk. I was like “You are 18. What the hell does the Civil war have to do with anything?”

        So being some dumb ass enlisted man in the Army, 11 bravo to boot (bullet catcher) I didn’t really feel privileged. Also my ancestors are from the North and never owned slaves and some of them even helped out in the underground railroad. So what will even the score?

        What do you do with racial prejudice if you are a low income person? Should I think “OH well I deserve it, being white and all”? For some reason a lot of black guys don’t like me. They think I am a big mean redneck. At different jobs I got mean mugged and later it turns out they think I watch Nascar and listen to country music and own a shit load of guns. Seriously. They are convinced of it. I mean it takes a lot of convincing that I listen to Gnarles Barkley and stuff and hate country music. I think people that are insular with their own group are not very discerning about members of out groups.

        • A guy I used to work with told me about his experiences in Vietnam during the Newark race riots.
          He was an Irish city boy from Cifton, and said the other white guys in his unit were all of the southern farm boy type. Because of this, he hung out with the black guys because they were also city kids and he had more in common with them.
          When the riots broke out back home, all the black guys who had been his friends turned on him overnight because he was now “the enemy” due to what was happening back home. It didn’t seem to matter that they had all been on the other side of the world fighting shoulder-to shoulder in the bush.

        • Calypso_1 | Oct 29, 2012 at 1:09 pm |

          I’ve said this before but will repeat it. Yes there is racism, rednecks and such in the
          South, but those elements exist everywhere.
          I’ve lived all over the country and from my own personal experience I
          don’t think that those from the North realize how well the majority of individuals
          in the South get along across racial lines. We live, work & play together.
          Sure there are core elements of communities that are self-segregated and
          there is still change that needs to occur but there is also such a huge sensitivity,
          due to history, about prejudice that it shocking to see it in many environments.
          If anything the divisions are more economic than racial.

          In places I’ve lived outside the South it was rare ever to even encounter a black person. Here over half the people I interact with on a daily basis are black and I consider that a positive element of my/our culture. I’ve had white friends that moved back from other areas further north because they felt uncomfortable with the predominantly white demographic.

          I hate the whole idea that a people/culture need even be largely divided or categorized by race. It simply isn’t true. Certainly there are unique & positive cultural elements that exist within ethnic groups that should be celebrated on their own but that in no way eliminates that possibility and desirability of shared cultural characteristics and mutually interactive coexistence and community.

          They did have a choice, their anscestors where brought here as slave labor and not too long ago compared to all of history. But it’s no excuse, combat racism where ever you see it. It’s kinda hard for black people to be truly racist, the pressure is on them all the time, if and when racism from everyone else towards black drop and they are still acting the fool you can proove your point. Dude I even spot racist thought patterns in my self and when I don’t I try to follow it with a willed counter thought to keep myself in check. The reptilian brain sees things in real simple terms because it is ancient and for survival only under extreme conditions, so one needs to keep it in its place when it’s trying to intervene in modern life. Just don’t be racist, be a good person with superior morals that radiate out into existence making everything better. The choice is up to you. Only you can prevent racist bias

            “Only you can prevent racist bias.”

            Says the bear in the ranger hat!

          • The flip side of “white privilege” is the patronizing “white man’s burden.” You know because with great privilege comes great responsibility. So white people calling “white privilege” is basically about them thinking they are superior. I don’t think I’m superior. So I think these white hipster douche bags fresh out of Sociology 101 are actually the racists when they harp on and on about “white privilege” and most of them just want to make invidious distinctions between themselves and working class whites. Its partly class snobbery.

            That’s my take on it. Its just a bonding ritual that certain white people play to sort themselves by class, level of education and political orientation. None of them really give a shit about minorities being victims of racism. That’s how I see it. I see at Left Wing lectures and stuff. Room full of white people getting all incensed about racism and not a person of color in the room.

    Because blacks aren’t also Americans? Because blacks themselves are never prejudiced?

    AMAZING….the sheer number of rationalizations to avoid the truth in these comments. A dozen or more disinfo readers are running interfearance to deny that racism is a widespread problem.

  9. don’t get me started on those people who crack their eggs on the side.

    Well, the O.J. Simpson trial should have been the red flag about the real racial climate in Uhmurkah but nothing was resolved from that. We could have had a real national discussion about racism and xenophobia and such, but we didn’t. The election of Obama picked the scab off of racism in this country. We see it here in Disinfo. What type of articles are being posted here about Obama? Everything positive he’s done? No…Disinfo is obsessed with drones. It’s like complaining that your thoroughbred horse still produces horseshit.
    But as we see, there is a significant demographic in Uhmurkah that if they don’t outright hate Obama just for being black, allow his race to influence what they think about him. Look at ALL of Obama’s record, then make him a white man. See? Now we see that really come to fruition in this election in which the race appears to be much tighter than it should. If you wanted to grow in a lab a thing that represents everything that is wrong with this country, and the attitudes that led to the economic crisis, then that thing couldn’t more perfectly created than Mitt Romney. Yet, we see this unwarranted criticism of Obama despite what he’s been able to achieve, given a hostile congress, an apathetic and cynical populace and the fact that a large population in this country want to “lynch that thar uppity nigra.” Ask not what Obama can do for you, ask what you can do for Obama. And you can start by ceasing to dump burning paper bags full of horseshit on his front porch.
    It’s fine for blacks to be paid athletes (and slave labor in college sports) and for them to do the same job you do, or live next door…but they can’t date your white bread daughter or be President, that’s going too far. This is a generational thing. These attitudes can’t be changed overnight…or over one or two presidential terms…but there is HOPE that this country can CHANGE.
    Fiat lux.
