Are You An Unconscious Raaaaacist?

That’s what ABC News was discussing the other day

Deciding whom we will trust, especially with our money, may be shaped more by unconscious racial biases than many of us would like to admit, according to new research published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

See? We’re all racists deep in our minds. We’re all, at our core, big meanies. And probably to that guy in the picture at the link who looks suspiciously like Obama…..oh, wait

In Monday’s study, researchers focused on the extent to which unconscious racial biases may affect explicit preferences when we make decisions about whom to trust. Researchers measured implicit and explicit racial bias among 50 racially diverse participants using an Implicit Association Test (IAT) and questionnaires assessing self-reported racism.

Fifty people determine that over 300 million are supposedly secret raaaaacists?

Now, I never got around to posting this the other day. Normally what I’ll do is post two in the AM, then set up a few for the day, which I may never get around to, or find something more interesting and easy to post with my iPhone during the work day. Yet, the above leads to this hoot from Rachel Rose Hartman from Yahoo “News”

Birtherist response highlights racial undertones of ‘debate’

So what’s fueling the dogged questioning of Obama’s origins? Many critics of the birther movement say its core tenets–and its stubborn resistance to evidence disproving those beliefs–can be traced to racial hostilities. The fundamental birtherist conviction, these critics say, is that an African-American can’t have legitimately won the presidency–and that his elevation to power therefore has to be the result of an elaborate subterfuge.

“There is a real deep-seated and vicious racism at work here in terms of trying to de-legitimate the president,” Peniel Joseph, a professor of history at Tufts University, told The Ticket.

“This is more than just a conspiracy,” Joseph added. “I think this is fundamentally connected to a conception of white supremacist democracy in this country.”

The article keeps going on and on and on about how the whole thing is “raaaaacist.” Essentially, that’s the Leftist fall back argument for most things. Or killing Grandma. Hating the poor. But, mostly, raaaacist. None of them provide proof, just their “feelings”

Birthers emphatically deny such criticism. But it’s difficult to apprehend the ongoing resistance to proof of Obama’s citizenship without crediting racial fear as a significant factor.

See, it’s so easy! But, of course, Rachel and the other nuts can’t “apprehend” why people are so virulently against Obama and his destructive and foolish policies which are destroying America, raising prices, destroying the dollar, putting us in enormous multigenerational debt, and you know the rest. Nope, must be raaaaacism of a guy who’s half white.

Clue for you, Rachel and assorted nuts: most do not care if he is half Black. They care about his policies. Most on the right are not caught up in the politics of race. But, then, I don’t expect her to understand, considering she completely misunderstands what the Constitution says about “natural born” in her first paragraph, and slyly suggests that McCain wasn’t eligible.

    It always comes back to the race issue, sigh. I am a racist and I admit it BUT I am against all races, religions, etc at one time or another and that includes being against myself at times. islam is a perverted twisted political ideology that has been wrongly branded as a religion. I consider myself an equal opportunity racist. There is a special place in hell for islam. Damn, there I go again.

    Back to the topic. My disgust with the mullah in the White House has nothing to do with his being black or a muslim(that does not help though). It has to do with what he has done since elected and what he plans to keep on doing until he is voted out of office or impeached. I could care less if he is chinese, mexican, white, whatever. I would still dislike it, immensely.

    As far his eligibility issue, I do not think he is and to question this is not racist. The documents produced looked cooked up to me and prove nothing to help his claims to the White House out accept for those who are already brainwashed by too much Kool-Aid, and are NWO progressives at all costs.

    After all, he has spent over two million bucks to keep his records sealed. So what is he REALLY hiding? What do they expect us to do? March the goose step down Pennsylvania avenue with the rest of his far leftarded trolls and minions? I think not!

    BFD. Call me a racist an islamophobe whatever, domestic terrorist, gun totting neocon whack job kook. It is not like the first time and certainly will NOT be the last.

    Now back to “If All You See.” More, please!!

    The liberals are correct, of course. We bigots would be as happy as darkies strummin’ on banjos if the president weren’t so, well, mocha-flavored. We just see that skin pigment and our reason goes South. Or further South, Away Down South in Dixie South.

    Yassuh, I tell y’all, we don’t give a hoot in hell about gas prices approaching $5.00 a gallon, the fact that we’re two months behind on the mortgage and haven’t had a job in two years, or that the USA is fallin’ apart or that furriners are selling off their US treasuries and exchanging their Yankee dollars for real currencies. None of that stuff is remotely important…we’d be happy as clams in cream in the guy screwing up the country was white. And that’s a fack, Jack.

    I am a member of the “Racists for Truth, Justice and the American Way” group. We don’t believe a person of a race can be trusted.

    Unfortunately, the group consists of just me. For some reason, every time someone wants to join, I get scared and doubt their existence.

    BTW, is it racist to hate high gas prices now? Does that mean that the democrats were racist against Bush a few years ago?
