The article in the TimesDaily that reports an increase in racism in this country since the 2008 presidential election seems to be missing some very important and relevant data. Where are the results of the poll that was done to measure the percentage of blacks and Hispanics who harbor prejudice against whites?
Was this poll not performed, or is it simply that racism toward whites is viewed as being acceptable and not newsworthy?
My guess is that the AP didn’t perform this poll because they knew the results would reflect that racial prejudice is prevalent across all races. Admitting this fact, however, would tend to diminish the significance of a story about the level of racism among white Americans.
It also would lessen the obvious intended political impact of this story 10 days prior to a very contentious election.
Regrettably, the media in this country has apparently become unwilling and/or incapable of delivering fact-based unbiased national news coverage.
All stories, regardless of content or subject, seem to advocate some social or political agenda, and this AP story about racial prejudice is no different.
Even though I am extremely disappointed that the TimesDaily deemed this story worthy of front page coverage, I am certainly not surprised.
