Study: Race relations in the U.S. improving

How well do racial and ethnic groups get along these days?

By Charyn Pfeuffer - MSN Living Editor Aug 26, 2013 6:45PM

According to a recent Pew Research Center study on race and ethnicity, most blacks, whites and Hispanics say they get along reasonably well with each other.

Here are a few highlights of the Pew Research Center’s recent report on race in America:

  • 81 percent of whites and 73 percent of blacks say those two groups get along “very” or “pretty” well.
  • 77 percent of whites and 74 percent of Hispanics said their groups got along well.
  • 78 percent of African-Americans say blacks and Hispanics get along well; 61 percent of Hispanics agreed.
  • Whites have a less positive view of black-Hispanic relations than did blacks and Hispanics themselves.

I wonder what the statistics would be if those polled were asked about the politics of each individual racial group.  I saw Al the racist Sharpton on television yesterday beating the drum against state's rights and calling for an even larger Federal Government.  This is not unusual among black politicians or black media members.  It is however against the Constitution and against my rights and as such their political group is my enemy, even if I would have a few beers with them.

So which is the truth? These comments or those fake American research statistics? The sorry part is the sick minded people that continue to say it is not happening. If I had what white America and their yellow counterparts have? I be going around saying everything is alright too.

It appears that some folks are upset by good news. That's sad. But I suppose they have their reasons. I happen to believe the poll, and I do for the following reasons:
(i) in the area where I work and live, folks of all races get along very well. That doesn't necessarily mean they like each other. It just means they interact in a civil and cordial manner. And that's good enough for me.
(ii) in 2008 and 2012, our majority white nation elected and re-elected a black man with more than 50 % of the vote each time. The result of those two elections is an excellent gauge of race relations and it supports the finding of the poll.

People are angry, negative and unhappy all over this country. Racial prejudice is easy, but signify a larger problem. If you read the posts, you will know haters are everywhere and need no reason to hate. Just their nature. Easier to spew hate and blame everyone else instead of using the time and energy to better themselves and the world.

in spite of efforts by the poverty pimps and their bitches in the media kids are getting along, but Jackson and Sharpton wont go down without a fight and Obama, along with Holder, are willing to keep fanning the flames.
