Quote from 538 article...

"There hasn’t been much of an overall increase or decrease in the index since (Pres.) Obama took office. On average, between the 2004 and 2006 editions of the surveys — the last two before Obama was either a president or a candidate — the index of negative racial attitudes stood at 22 percent for white Democrats and 26 percent for white Republicans. Those values are within the margin of error for those in the 2010 and 2012 surveys.

"If there’s a discouraging trend, it’s not so much that negative racial attitudes toward blacks have increased in these polls, but that they’ve failed to decrease under Obama, as they did so clearly for most of the past three decades."

billgrr, since you've said that others doing c/p's nauseate you, I just have to say...

your several c/p's are nauseating as well.

Boom.

Now if we could trust billgrr to do equal time in examples of Democrat racist statements (which we can't) I hope somebody else will do the research and c/p their results here.

"And a word of warning to progressive Democrats like myself.....We don't need to prove we're better because we don't discriminate. Just let others prove they're not because they do!"

This was a warning?

I didn't realize that "jury-rigged", a term used to describe an inprovised fix to something, was now a racist term. Seriously, BG? Really?

Bill Garr, high and mighty, you try make religion in to something else. Not on your time, not in your face, you can practice it, but not outside your home nonsense. You are over the top and someone in the same arena as Donald Sterling.

You're an open book of hate Hal!

You apply your Goebel strategy of repeat and therefor I am luring an audience who's dependent upon faulted inequities to feel maligned by the very freedoms you rail against.

I don't just talk big Hal, I carry a bigger schtick than you.

I like Hal Neff's writings; wish he would broaden his scope to include this paper.

Can you prove Hal is JackA, JustaGarr?

"yes....as JustaWhoaMan would say"

And yes, what Hal Neff continues to say is nothing new!

As we all know historical cycles in a free country give rise to voices of the discontent. Those who's goal is to control, suppress and minimize worth use words like (just a woman, he's a native, it's that black man again, tired of that Jew, insane Irish, dumb pollock, minority, inferior, democrat, etc, etc...)

If you read Hal's numerous editorials there's always someone to blame, always a group labelled as being the problem.

Like your buddy landslide, this was the premise of 52 million deaths associated with peoples prejudice, their fears and their inability to find strength when needed.....

JackA (Hal), you fool no one and you'ld be the first to disappear when MDN requires real names because you couldn't exist outside that local hypocrite cafe you feed at!!!
