Racial Bias

Do you think that racial bias towards blacks has resurged, or at least become more "normal" for people to express since Obama took office in 2008? And, in turn, attitudes towards whites has become worse by those of color?

I know racial tension has always been here, but my question is whether or not people act more racist because of Obama's election? Case in point - I remember back when he was elected seeing the video of the black woman talking about never having to work again and how she's going to get everything she wants now that a "black man is in power". I don't think I'm racist as I don't really think of a person's skin color first, but I do remember thinking how this was going to be how the less educated, poorer black segment of the United States really viewed his election and how it was just a way for them to "get payback" at the white man. Now, jump forward 4 more years and now all I hear and see are the groups of black people who are paid 11 bucks an hour to stand on the corner and hold signs for Obama, and the ones getting their "free phones".

I think the problem goes far deeper than just who is in office and who is not. There is a core of america that has no desire to be part of "the melting pot". They wish to only do what they want, and feel any other view is wrong and should be ignored.

Its called entitlement, and many people seem to have the problem.

Here's an example of white liberal self-hatred at its best.

Same place the "it's gotten worse from blacks only" is. I didn't chose those two options for a reason. I haven't seen it getting worse on just one front. In fact, if I had to be honest, I've heard the "OMG a black man in office - we're going to hell" just as much as the examples given in my previous post. However, we have to admit that these are the examples that are being portrayed in the media the most.

But do you honestly believe it's only and just the white man/woman perpetuating the racial bias?

So you are deliberately attempting to skew discussion with your poll?

Nope, not trying to skew anything. I'm truly interested.

And, exactly what Blake is saying - IMHO this isn't a "whites" vs "blacks" conversation. The question is simply this. Is there more racial bias since Obama has been elected than before (between both whites and blacks), or has it always been the same but people are just more vocal?

OP- I can see where you're coming from, there's more racism and racebaiting from both sides the past four years. But I believe it's just short term. The "coolness" of the first black president is over and he's proven he's more than capable for the job. He didn't destory america like many people thought but he wasn't the minorities savior either. He's an average president, doing a mostly good job. I believe his presidentcy will have a long term impact in eliminating racism when people look back on it.

It's obviously better than it was in the past. The evidence is the fact that we have a black president.

Duh.

Judging by the laughable posts in here, clearly people are more vocal about it.
