59 percent of African-American
young voters say US ‘moving in
the right direction’

Daily Caller, by Jennifer White

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/1/2012 9:53:37 AM

Despite continued high unemployment, a recent national poll shows that 59 percent of African-American voters age 19-29 feel that the country is “moving in the right direction.” Tufts University’s youth research organization, The Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning & Engagement released the poll Monday. The data reveals that while young black voters feel the general condition of the country is improving, only 23.6 percent of white youth said the country is moving in the right direction. Young Hispanic voters were the largest group to be unsure about the direction of the country.

Comments:
Absolutely stunning. This leaves me speechless.

I saw the headline and said some naughty words. How can people be so stupid? No prospects for the future for many youth, no opportunity, yet we're moving in the right direction?

This is not shocking to me. Rather than achieve, it is much easier for the youth - who have been brainwashed since they were knee high to a grasshopper that they are being oppressed, that they do not have a chance to succeed because of their skin color, want to level the playing field.

It is much easier to bring down others than it is to lift yourself up.

A couple decades ago I had a conversation with a black co-worker about affirmative action. I said racial discrimination would only create resentment. His reply? "They can resent it all they want!"

In 2008 a large portion of whites helped elect Obama in the interest of racial harmony and hope for a post-racial society. What they got was an anti-white administration like never before. No one should be suprised when he loses next week.

That must mean 40% of the black youth thinks we are headed in the wrong direction. Four years ago 100% of them would have agreed with 0bama, so he has lost 40% of his support.

Black unemployment on Jan 20, 2009 stood at 11%. Black unemployment as of Sept 30, 2012 stands at 14% To those African-Americans who think the economy is moving in the right direction, Huh? Unemployment among black youth was at 29% in September 2012.

Net household income has dropped every year since Barack Obama took office.

Barack can shout hope and change all he wants. African-Americans who believe him are being suckered by yet another democratic administration who only wants their votes and unthinking support.

What exactly does "moving in the right direction" mean? Socialism/facism? Emulate Europe?

I'd be interested in the demographic breakdown on education levels of those asked.
I'd also like to know what THEY think the "right direction" should be.

I believe the poll.

This is the result of our world-leading public education system led by socialist and politically correct curriculum and Teacher's Unions.

Notice I do not place responsibility on the majority of our TEACHERS who are trapped in that system and are trying their best to help their "kids" (you know, the ones that actually show up for class to learn rather than disrupt the teacher’s efforts..)

These people are young and stupid. Colon Powell doesn't have that excuse.

In the 60's and early 70's it looked like there was a chance for real societal racial integration. Then came institutionalized discrimination in the form of affirmative action. A practice that got the US Supreme Court's seal of approval (Thanks Justice O'Connor, you moron). Then the Democrat's found how easy it was to herd them around en masse as long as they kept the racial grievance business going. They have been aided in this by the professional race baiters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. The result is most blacks see everything though a racial prism and if a (half) black guy is president he must be good. He's black.

David Brat, the long-shot challenger to Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA) in Virginia´s 7th Congressional District, is demanding an investigation into the new executive director of the Virginia Republican party, Shaun Kenney, after it was revealed Kenney´s consulting firm is now on Cantor´s payroll. "If Eric Cantor´s campaign or any of his affiliates has hired Shaun Kenney’s consulting firm, any pretense of fairness in the upcoming Seventh District Congressional Race is diminished," Brat wrote in a letter to Pat Mullins, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia (RPVA).

The White House has announced that John Podesta, President Obama’s current Counselor, will lead his delegation to the Holy See for the Mass of canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II on April 27, 2014. Podesta will head the delegation which will also include Rep.

National security should serve policy objectives. It should not be a victim of political correctness. Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence. Today´s decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure. It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe. I have gone on record in the past—on Al Jazeera, of all places—to explain why the program was a good idea and crucial to preventing terrorist plots in the future. In

Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually outmuscle the National Rifle Association. Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own. “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A.

Kristine Kirk, 44, called for help around 9:30p.m. Monday, telling dispatchers that her husband Richard Kirk, 47, was ´talking about the end of the world´ and ´scarring´ their three children. A source told FOX31 investigators are looking at whether he had eaten a marijuana cookie.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
