According to a recent poll taken by AP-Yahoo, one third of of white Democrats harbor negative views toward blacks calling us "lazy," "violent" or responsible for our own troubles. The poll was conducted by Stanford University.
The poll suggests that if the fall election is close, and it appears that it will be, that these negative views of blacks could cost Sen. Barack Obama the presidency. Well at this point "It Is, What It Is", and Obama is marching on with his "Change" platform , which we desperately need in this country. This election unfortunately is turning into the ultimate litmus test for race relations in our country.
