    I agree. The racialism in the Left, the Media and Academia is a very big problem. I too would answer yes on this poll. Can you guys get over it and just view people as people rather than components of a racial group? Everyone is getting pretty sick of you guys.

    I agree. The myth of racism is a problem. People believing in false things usually is a problem.

    You are having trouble understanding the poll and related article. It would help you if you read the whole thing.

    Fairy tales are entertaining to read but I still do not see where the myth is not a problem. Perhaps you can enlighten.

    The mad libs are so racist and don't even realize it. They defend the Islamofascists yet they hatehatehate the religious right. They either hate white people or they think the brown skinned fascists are too inadequate to be held accountable.

    They will attack/ publicly criticize a KKK member, for instance, just for their ideology. Yet, an Islamic supremacist is just an 'innocent Muslim' until they commit an actual crime. The liberal media represents the FAKE LEFT.

    Many black people say they see it as a problem because they have realized that having a victim status is an easy way to get free (*)(*)(*)(*) and to have power by being able to scream "racist!" every time they don't get their way. Many white people say it is a problem because they are sheeple and don't want to be one of the people that gets pointed at and called a racist. They'd rather accept the ridiculous notion that they are the problem simply because they were born white. So, yeah, I would say that the supposed huge racism problem is a myth that is perpetuated because it benefits so many people to keep it going.

    Bigfoot sees racism as a big problem....so does the Tooth Fairy and Easter Bunny. These are three individuals who see racism as a problem so it must be true.

    You realize that a generalization like this could be seen as proof of racism as opposed to an argument that it doesn't exist.

    Every year black people die of natural causes. This means that nature is racist.

    The U.S. is the least racist, most tolerant nation on the planet. We've welcomed people from 200+ countries.

    Even so, liberals constantly harp on racism and slavery so they can "fundamentally transform" us.

    What crap.

    Many of us are certainly a little dubious, but where I live now and what I see and read about, EVEN ON THIS FORUM, does not indicate a racial problem among the people. Maybe you should consider media (Poll takers) and even then the reasons. Obama and crew, certainly have stoked the fires of a few, along with various groups seeking publicity.

    Doug, think about this....The AMERICAN's elected a BLACK PRESIDENT (twice), on a national basis where only 14% or so are Black. I would suggest, quite a few of these voters are a little concerned about his policies and practices, but there are no new White or other races revolting or even involved to counter "Black Lives Matter" or maybe the "New Black Panthers" or others trying to show some power, possibly because they do have a Black President, but how this make American's racist is beyond me......

    How about this...the RNC is running two Hispanics, along with a Black and even a woman...How is this bunch of REPUBLICAN's demonstrate anything near racial concerns???

    Well except for the slavery, lynchings, segregation and so on.

    Well not really. You didn't really welcome Italians, you didn't really welcome the Irish and so on. And Blacks? Tell us more about how you 'welcomed' blacks? I'd really like to hear about that Welcome Wagon experience!

    Americans elected a Black President twice because most Americans aren't racist. The poll doesn't indicate that most Americans are racist, but that most Americans feel racism is a problem.

    Bull(*)(*)(*)(*), white people will say that Racism is a problem because if they don't say that when ask, they are automatically called racists.

    57% of whites don't think it is a big problem, but only 12% of all Americans don't think it is a big problem.

    I'm having trouble squaring that math.

    Exactly. The media promotes as many instances of minorities in unfortunate circumstances and interprets it as racism. It does not prove racism exists but anything can be interpreted as racism.

    I wouldn't have to blame them if they could just accept responsibility.

    If all you do is sit around smoking pot and drinking 40s and your only idea for making money is to score some illegal product that you can sell on the black market, you are responsible for your own failure.

    Or, it could be the truth, and one of those things that is so taboo to say because I might be called "racist!!". Fortunately, I know I'm not, and don't much give a damn about the opinions of those who think I am. I will just call it how I see it. And I've seen waaaay to much victim status BS in recent years.

    Spot on! Take any circumstance involving a minority and interpret it as "racism".

    Obviously he is not talking about all african americans. He is talking about the welfare leeches and those that revel in their victimhood.

    No, that's what I did. It's the reason I am personally responsible for my failures.
