    Genuinely curious about how you HONESTLY feel about members of opposite races. The results will remain anonymous.

    I am white but I would have preferred to vote this way:

    --- I am white and I don't believe in judging people.

    Do not give a f.. if people know who I am, wear my beliefs on my sleeve..

    I grew up in a town that had the highest concentration of black folks in RI.. believe it or not, Newport.. went to a segregated YMCA, went to a segregated school, played ball with many blacks.. there were blacks I hated, blacks that became good friends, there are whites I hate, and whites that became good friends..

    I also have an adopted daughter who is multi racial.. and saw discrimination through her eyes.. the term n..er was used when other girls got mad at her.

    Professionally started off with the welfare company, then moved to child protective services, spent the last 20 years behind high walls involved with delinquents. Staff were about 40% minority, the population was about 70% minority.. there are some minority kids I did not like, some minority staff I did not like.. but wound up liking most of them and many of the staff are good friends..

    My experience is close and personal on many levels...

    I don't know - don't you think it's kind of "funny" in a strange sort of way, that anyone would have even answered the question "Do you think blacks are intelligent?" on a questionairre of any sort, much less a politically oriented one?

    If I wasn't racist, the question would offend me to the point of refusing to complete the survey, and if I was racist, I'd be afraid to say so in a study being run by a black man - after all, I'm about to insult the sh!t out of him with my answer.

    Everyone knows that The Tea Party, rightly or wrongly, is being accused of being racist - wouldn't the smart thing to do be to down play answers like "yes, I think the negro is less intelligent than I am?"

    Unless they're somehow proud of their attitude and whatever superiourity they feel it might give them. Which may very well be, I don't know.

    It just seems to me that in a climate where you're trying very hard to deny racism exists in a group that you'd be a bit more careful about answering a question with an answer which confirms it's existance within that goup.

    I'm not saying they should have lied - I'm saying that the 5th ammendment exists for a reason.

    Can't check any of them -- 2 is closest, but like most people I have my own biases and prejudices that come to the fore at times, like it or not

    Wow!:eek: An honest person! EVERYONE has prejudices...you're right. I think it's important that we recognize that and work on them as individuals.

    Yeah, we need NEPatriot back, stat.

    As for the poll, I stereotype all the time. I'd be lying if I tried to claim otherwise.

    I am white and I believe all people should be treated equal.

    I am against affirmative action & quotas because they benefit one race
    over another.

    Where are the "I am black, and hate all white people" radial?, I know Obama is looking for it.

    Right here, in your poll, you ASSuME that only White people can be racist.

    Have you ever heard any of the "sermons" in Obama's church, if that isn't racism, I have no idea what is.
