Default 49% of Americans say racism is a big problem in America

I guess that is at least 49% who will be voting for a Democrat candidate.

They could be voting for a third party or a Republican.

They could, but I am not aware of a viable third party or Republican candidate. Since the leading Republican candidates are bigots if not racists, I'm thinking not Republican.

You never met a Democrat who was not racist .You either have led a sheltered life or are very young.

Adolph Trump was a Democrat and was/is a racist, but now he is a republican.

Racists have always been around for sure. But now we are going to have a racist, bigoted administration controlled by Vladimir Putin.

Racism will always exist! I know several black people who are very racist towards whites and hispanics! Racism had seemed like it was almost dead before Barak Obama became President and stirred up the hornets nest.

Only 49% We all should be thinking about racism. Too bad the most bigoted and racist people don't seem to understand that they are.

OK Truck Cruiser blame Barack Obama, it's all his fault.


The KKK, the Skinheads, the white supremacists and the hate preached by '' Trampa '' had nothing to do with it.

Yes, President Obama had the audacity to run for President, and the nerve to win both the popular and electoral vote. A real people's President, not a con man. Twice! All without interference by foreign nationals or other controversy. And to top it off, a scandal free 8 years of prosperity. How divisive. Alex Jones can go procreate with himself.

Maybe to a certain extent but I never saw or heard any prejudice coming from my Mother. She would not allow people to make racist comments in her presence and she always said that everyone was created by the Lord.

Perhaps, but that is their problem. When their prejudice impacts someone else, it is society's problem and responsibility to fix.

I think what Mike is saying is that we are all flawed, biased people. That is true. Those of us who are aware of that and try to be open minded, compassionate, and decent people are different people from racist, narrow minded bigots.

My feeling is that the 49% number will be significantly higher in a few years.
