Are we united yet? Far from it:
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 36% of voters now say relations between blacks and whites are getting better. That's down from 62% in July of last year at the height of the controversy involving a black Harvard professor and a white policeman.
As readers will recall, in that case our "post-racial" president, who was elected largely for his skin color and who made his hatred of Caucasians public knowledge in an autobiography, acted stupidly by siding with a race-baiting moonbat against the police.
African-Americans are much more pessimistic than whites. Thirty-nine percent (39%) of whites think black-white race relations are getting better, but just 13% of blacks agree.
Interestingly, 59% of African-American voters continue to believe the country is moving in the right direction, a view shared by just 27% of whites.
You could almost get the impression that the Manchurian Moonbat is not expected to get along with Whitey, but to tear down his world.
Every time a liberal whips out the race card, the situation gets worse:
Confidence in the nation's course among African-Americans soared after Barack Obama's election. But then several prominent Democrats, perhaps most notably former President Jimmy Carter, suggested that opposition to the president's health care plan was motivated in part by racism. Only 12% of all voters agreed in September of last year, but among blacks, 27% felt that way and 48% were undecided.
The only way to end racial tension is to integrate and assimilate — which stands in direct contradiction to the liberal strategy of balkanization through "multiculturalism." The more power liberals hold, the worse race relations will inevitably get. What did anyone really expect?
