Do conservatives dislike blacks? One vicious claim by liberals is that conservatives are racists. Is it true? I analyzed data from the General Social Survey and found that 81.25% of libs say they have warm or neutral feelings toward blacks (and, of course, pledging undying love for our darker brothers is mandatory, even if you are lying). So maybe half as many cons? Wrong--the actual number is 87.7%. (In the interest of full disclosure, cons had more neutrals, which is, incidentally, consistent with their belief in color-blindness).

    I'm upper middle class and I've never heard a Christian acquaintence refer negatively to blacks in general. But I must have heard four or five Jewish acquaintences (I know perhaps 1/10 as many Jews as Christians) speak to me of blacks as "Schwartzers"; which they view as a strongly negative term. They discuss how to keep away from them. This always seemed very surprising to me in view of Jews' liberal and tolerant image.

    The more insulated white folks are from blacks, esp. underclass blacks, the "warmer" their feelings for them are.

    Re. Jews' and other liberals' tolerant image: this does not apply to their personal life. Witness uppre middle class liberals' neighborhood, their kids' schools, etc.
