3 in 10 Americans Admit to Race Bias

(Survey Shows Age, Too, May Affect Election Views)

As Sen. Barack Obama opens his campaign as the first African American on a major party presidential ticket, nearly half of all Americans say race relations in the country are in bad shape and three in 10 acknowledge feelings of racial prejudice, according to a new Washington PostABC News poll.

Lingering racial bias affects the public’s assessments of the Democrat from Illinois, but offsetting advantages and Sen. John McCain‘s age could be bigger factors in determining the next occupant of the White House.  (keep reading washingtonpost.com)

Hate Groups’ Newest Target

Posters on Stormfront complain that Obama represents the end of “white rule” and the beginning of “multiculturalism.” They fear that he will promote affirmative action, support illegal immigration and help render whites, who make up two-thirds of the U.S. population, “the new minority.”

“I get nonstop e-mails and private message from new people who are mad as hell about the possibility of Obama being elected,” said Black, a white power activist since the 1970s. “White people, for a long time, have thought of our government as being for us, and Obama is the best possible evidence that we’ve lost that. This is scaring a lot of people who maybe never considered themselves racists, and it’s bringing them over to our side.”

Almost all white power leaders said they are benefiting from the rise in recruits. David Duke, a former Louisiana state representative and a longtime advocate of racial segregation, said hits to his Web site have doubled and that more organizations now request him as a guest speaker. Dan Hill, who runs an extremist group in northern Michigan, says his cohorts are more willing to “take serious action” and plan rallies to protest politicians and immigration. Roper says White Revolution receives about 10 new applicants each week, more than double the norm. (more at washingtonpost.com)

One Citizen from Daily Kos the Creator of Michelle Obama Torture Depiction


One Citizen has removed this illustration.

But here are Citizen’s word regarding his illustration.

“You have to admit that the sensationalist image snagged a lot more readers though. unrepentant. BTW I took that image down long before anyone realized it. I figured I’d take it down as soon a I hit a certain number of comments. I still think that it was entirely appropriate, historically accurate and politically relevant. Besides, it was an ILLUSTRATION, a FICTION not a PHOTO. I still don’t get what all the uproar was about mainly because only one person bothered to really articulate their feelings.”

Just in case you’re not knowledgeable about ‘Lynching’, read this

Nearly five thousand men and women were lynched in the American South in the years between Reconstruction and the Civil Rights Movement.  These black men and women were not slaves.  They were hardworking, taxpaying citizens of America who had been granted the right to vote and given equal protection of the law in the American Constitution.  Yet they were viciously murdered for tiny infractions of a racist social code.  These gruesome murders were carefully constructed to impact the entire community. The lynch mob not only killed its victim, it stripped whole communities of any sense of security, protection, or predictability… That such a horrifying imaging of Michelle could be deployed in her so-called-defense made me sad, angry and really very scared.  Melissa Harris-Lacewell, The Root.

Geesh, I need a bath after looking at that – feel like I was raped lynched and torture.

Never read the dude’s work but One Citizen can rest assure he has One less fan.
