    Isn't this proof that Republicans are smarter than democrats?

    Have you been to the town of Randolph recently.
    Randolph use to be a quiet town with a low crime rate.

    Randolph is now a crime infested town with a high crime rate.

    In 1970-1980 there were zero guns confiscated at Randolph schools.
    Between 2004 and 2007 There were 19 guns confiscated ar Randolph schools.

    Care to look at the demographics between 1970 & 1980 & 2004-2007?

    You just provided proof you don't understand the basic flaw in the premise, or you are truly a racist who thinks you can judge a person by the color of their skin.

    Because I think race is a central issue, given Harry Boy's posts, your posts are the right to discriminate, F.B.N.s post on blacks protesting Obama, claims of Obama being Muslim, McCain ads that seem to play the card, and polls showing that race is a pivotal issue. I think the issue should be confronted. It'san important one.

    I'd like to see that too. Obama was trying to play the race card by calling Republicans racist and some Democrat goofs are suggesting the only way Obama can lose is racism but there has been none from the Right.

    Blacks can't protest Obama because Obama is black? WOW!!!!
    Blacks who don't represent most blacks are bad blacks?
    Blacks cannot form their own opinion ... they must tow the party line?
    Blacks who are anti-abortion must not be encouraged?
    Blacks who are anti gay marriage must not be encouraged?

    This thread makes the other thread very very clear Patters.
    You have an elitist attitude towards racism and you are very very racist yourself. You have a bad propensity of labeling people ... that's racism.

    Racism against blacks is but one form of racism. You are racist against white republicans, religious whites, pro-life whites, conservative whites ... are we speaking different languages? Don't you see how racist you are? You're so racist you feel empowered to seek racism in everyone you have a dialect with ... that's messed up.

    In the far left wing hateful mind Minority Racism that is directed at White Conservative Christians is not considered Racism.

    Loon Logic:
    If several whites beat up a minority and call them racists names it is a hate crime.

    If several minority's beat up a white and call them racist names it is anger and all the slobbering excuses are rolled out.

    People responded to what their perceptions are. When I turn on the news here in Boston, or buy a Herald, I see black neighborhoods on the front page acting like they live in the OK Corral. Most people know that the fatherless rate in the black community is 70%, do they not? When people watch a sporting event, they see all the tattoo's, and as it's described in most circles "thuggery" (rap music anyone). The answers are about how they view the black community. When you see what we see broadcasted everyday, I think those figures are to be expected. I think this is a result of what people see everyday (news, movies, TV, etc.), more so than through their personal experiences. My family used to say, when I was a kid, that Italian politicians never did well cuz everyone thought they were in the mafia. It's perception versus reality in some sense.

    To me this stood out:

    In the end, if Obama loses, it will be his policies, record (or lack thereof), and positions that do him in. People continuously say "how can a dem not be 10 points ahead?", well, if you ignore the dem versus repub aspect for a moment, and consider the candidate on his merrits, is he truly attractive? I personally don't think so. I think he's extremely flawed. Again, ignore everything but the question of who is Barack Obama. He's extremely inexperienced for a presidential candidate, and I mean extremely. He's never run anything in his life. He votes present. He's young. Has a very questionable circle of friends, which points to bad judgement. He's extremely liberal, and liberal politicians do not do well in presidential elections. His policies scream of socialism. He lacks specifics. He's made disparaging, or condescending comments about middle america. The man is an inherently flawed candidate, in and of himself. To me, that's why this is close. Of course, McLame is extremely flawed as well.

    Harry Boy.... I think I got a better description.

    If several minority's beat up a white and call them racist names ...
    The media calls it an isolated incident.

    You're making the same sort of mistake as you made when you said that the name of the group protesting Obama was Blacks against Obama. Rather than reading carefully, you're making things up. No one said blacks can't protest Obama.

    In fact, this intent of this thread is to show documentary evidence that white Republicans are more bigoted than white Democrats. I think it's best to confront bigotry, because I think at heart most people don't want to be bigots. It's a matter of education.

    Something wrong with this poll, do we really believe only 20% of whites would describe blacks as "law abiding?" I can't see the number being that low, only 1 in 5 white people in the USA think black people are NOT CRIMINALS? Check out the methodology for the poll, there are a number of methods here I would consider unsound. Here is an example:

    "The poll also used a technique aimed at measuring what psychologists call "affect misattribution." This involved showing faces of people of different races quickly on a screen before displaying a neutral image that people were asked to rate as pleasant or unpleasant. Studies have shown that people consciously or unconsciously transfer their feelings about the photograph to the object they are rating."

    Let's just say I'm a bit skeptical of this approach.

    Here's some more that makes me question the validity of this poll:

    "In addition, random groups of subjects were presented lists with varying numbers of subjects, such as increased federal gasoline taxes, corporations polluting the environment and a black president. They were then asked how many of those items — not which ones — were upsetting. By comparing each group's answers, researchers were able to estimate how many people were upset by the items relating to blacks."

    Does this sound like a good way to measure white people's feelings about blacks? Not to me, I think the numbers are way too low (or high depending on the question) for both Rs and and Ds.
