Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, August 11, 2018

A new Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted in conjunction with the University of Virginia Center for Politics finds that a majority of Americans surveyed believe that race relations in the United States have gotten at least somewhat worse since President Donald Trump's election. The poll also explores American racial attitudes at the one-year anniversary of a neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville last August. Tables 1 and 2 shows how respondents felt about race relations during both the Trump and Obama presidencies. Americans believe by 57% to 15% that race relations have become worse since President Trump's election. By contrast, respondents were evenly divided about Barack Obama's time in the White House, with 38% believing race relations improved and 37% saying they worsened.

@#1 ... Don't you mean under o'bummer?...

While the cited article does show numbers about fmr Pres Obama's watch (and I included a summary of them in the summary), those numbers are not nearly as bad as what has happened on Pres Trump's watch, i.e., race relations appear to have taken a significant turn for the worse.

Worsening race relations is the only part of Obama's legacy that remains at this point. That will probably take Trump his remaining 6 years in office to correct.

If you are a person who believes that the key to better relations between different races in America lies in the hands of any US president, you are part of the problem.

And let's please be real here & bypass the PC for a moment. Whenever the term 'race relations' is used, it means relations between black & white American's. PC sux.

"If you are a person who believes that the key to better relations between different races in America lies in the hands of any US president, you are part of the problem."

Like if you believe Truman improved race relations by integrating the armed forces, you are part of the problem.

Got it.

Alex & Snoofy, if you are incapable of understanding the, very serious & true, point in my 7 that just ain'y my fault.

I understand many people find it much simpler to point to anyone else, rather than themselves, on complex issues such as, not bettering but healing, relations between black & white American's.

But, the truth is, the only way to affect lasting & real 'race relations' is thru our dumb a***s actually doing the work. Throw in an equal amount of faith & respect & something lasting & real will come of it, I believe anyway.

BTW, Alex, in my time here I've not witnessed Snoofy assassinate anyone, least of all me.

But if it makes ya feel good......

"Throw in an equal amount of faith & respect"

If we did that, we wouldn't be separating migrant kids from their parents.

Man.... I have never put anyone on a 'kill or ignore' list, ever. I don't believe in any form of censorship & that includes any I would impose on another.

But, consider it a compliment that you are the closest to almost reach that level, for me. Guess that means you should begin tutoring sessions with AB on trolling, ASAP.

The more susprising figure is that 43% say race relations aren't worse under Trump. There must be a lot of big rocks to hide under in red states.

This is not surprising given some of Trump's rhetoric.

#22 or the obvious fact that racists and white supremacists are much more comfortable being blatant about it under this administration.

For once you're right. Obama made race relations worse, BY DARING TO BE BLACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

It made all the bigots like you lose your mind and vote for a white supremacist even though he's got the brains of an 8 year old.
