Survey: 32% Of Democrats Believe It's Racist To Criticize People Of Color

A recent survey of likely voters found that 47 percent believe President Donald Trump is racist.

Asbury Park, NJ – A recent national survey found that a third of Democrats believe it is racist for a white politician to criticize the political views of a politician of color.

Survey results also indicated that 47 percent of likely voters in the U.S. think that President Donald Trump is racist, but that 49 percent believe he has been accused of racism by his political opponents for their own political gain, according to Rasmussen Reports.

Rasmussen Reports gathered the feedback from 1,000 likely voters through telephone and online three-question surveys conducted on Monday and Tuesday.

The results were released on Wednesday.

“The partisan division of opinion couldn’t be any clearer,” the analysis concluded, according to the Washington Examiner. “While 80% of Democrats believe the president is a racist, 85% of Republicans think the racism charges by his opponents are politically motivated. Voters not affiliated with either major party are evenly divided on the question.”

“Thirty-two percent of Democrats, however, say it’s racist for any white politician to criticize the political views of a politician of color,” the analysis noted. “That’s a view shared by just 16% of both GOP and unaffiliated voters.”

On Wednesday, Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson defended the President against allegations that he is a racist, The Hill reported.

“I have an advantage of knowing the President very well, and he’s not a racist,” said Carson, who is the only black cabinet secretary in President Trump’s administration. "His comments are not racist, but he loves the country very much. And he has a feeling that those who represent the country should love it as well."

Carson noted that President Trump’s policies have led to “record low” levels of unemployment “for blacks, for Hispanics, for all the demographics of our nation.”

"When you have somebody spending this much time and this much effort trying to elevate those who are vulnerable and who are suffering in our society, I think we should pay a lot more attention to what they are doing than what anyone is saying," Carson added.

In general they need to try to chip away in any way they can to undermine Trump's accomplishments.The Democratic pontificating over the excruciating minutia only feeds the attention seeking mindset ...and if repeatedly fed will then just seek more and more attention over even the most mundane of pouting nonsense. Stop feeding the animals .They will go elsewhere for food which feeds their desperate cry for attention. Best thing to do is say too bad, Fuk Um and good bye.

I like the fact the biggest bigots' in politics call everyone else racist all the time. As if their anti white, straight, Christian, and patriot speech isn't hate speech. Hypocrisy + Racism = Democrat. How's that for statistics?

Go Dr Carson!! And is it scary to anyone else that a full 1/3 of Democrats basically want to limit Free Speech? That's the ultimate end goal here. 1984 here we come!

Why is it racist to criticize a person of color but not racist for a person of color to criticize a person who is white?

The truth is, if being a dumbass is what you are, it’s not because of your race, gender, or ethnicity. It’s because you’re just a dumbass. I don’t think it’s right to try and down play your being a dumbass or trying to cloud the issue of you being a dumbass, by accusing someone of being “racist” just because they call you out on being a dumbass. One shouldn’t just cry out “racism” just because someone is being truthful or can see exactly what you’re doing wrong and how you’re acting a fool.

Don't you think it's time to get down to business instead of all this racist garbage. I criticize what people say not what color they are. These fout women are constantly using racist as an accuse to get attention and to get what they want, to destroy America. Wake Up America snd stop accusing everyone for being racist, all they are doing is trying to get attention, so start ignoring what they are saying and maybe just MAYBE, they will stop playing the racist game. The Muslims are using them as TROJAN HORSES to destroy America. They didn't succeed on 9/11, so they are integrating into our government, another way to take over and destroy our way of life. So, STOP paying attention to these traitors and stop giving voices. Maybe, they will sink into nothing and we will no longer have to put up with their constant accusations. GOD BLESS AMERICA & LET'S SAVE HER FROM INNER TERRORISM🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

The accusation of "racist" has become THE most overused cliche' which now exists in this country. It is used to simply deflect,... to try and make the accused become defensive and embarrassed , ....it takes the focus away from the person who makes the accusation, and diminishes the need for the accuser to have further civil dialogue to defend their position and viewpoint. ( IE- just make the accusation and its then "end of discussion" ). Push back and ask hard questions. If/when you are accused of being a "racist" simply demand a full explanation as to exactly why the accuser is stating this. Then watch the accuser fumble,drool and stutter.

Everything is racist!! If you don’t agree with what snowflakes believe it’s racist. I don’t understand why everything is about race. Obama did a hell of a job causing racial tension in this country. I don’t care what color you are, but everybody has a Constitutional to believe what they believe. Until this race mentality is resolved this country will be divided and the Muslims are loving it because they are moving in setting up camp. The major thing everyone better realize they HATE whites, blacks and Hispanics unless you believe in there ways.

How superficial (pun intended!) can these poor, demented people get. The world is full of principles, policies, and programs (good & bad) that deserve criticism. If a person holds or supports one of those that is manifestly destructive to others, how is criticism of that racist? It isn't . . . and they know it, but they don't have any type of valid counter argument. Sad . . .

Let me see if I have this right: 1/3 democrats say it's racist for a white person to criticize a person of color, but it's acceptable for a person of color to criticize a white person?

Or more accurately, the democratic party can criticize the president until they are blue in the face, but the moment he criticizes a non-white male democratic, he's being a racist? Do I have that right? I want to make sure I understand their double standard position correctly.

This is exactly the attitude of P.C. work places that makes it so hard to manage people. No matter how bad their work product is, you can't fire them because they're black, or worse yet, black and female. I don't care if you're green with pink polka dots as long as you do your job correctly. SO tired of this!

Criticize anyone, who just happens to be a person of color, is racist! I think the Dems have overplayed the race card! I call out those Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse, who just happen to be women of color!

The word "racist" or "racism" will soon have all the impact and meaning of the words like "pasta" or "egg salad" ... In other words, bland, tasteless, meaningless...

I just LOVE the way this column notes that Ben Carson, famed neurosurgeon, Christian leader and on and on is the ONLY black on the cabinet. I guess the writer of this article is a REAL racist since that's the only thing they could find. I hate these people. The squad is the enemy of the people along with the msm liars. The real racists are the people who continue to call EVERYONE ELSE a racist. It's utter bullshit and it's time we did more than write posts!

A VERY WORRISOME FACT, MORE WORRISOME THAN MOST UNCOVERED STATISTICS.

25% of all Democrats are on medication for some form of mental instability…

That means that 75% are running around un-treated!!!

No. 26-27

First, I despise the term people of color..... That term alone sounds racist. Second, if one segregate's what words one can say about a race of people that alone is racist. Third liberalism is truly a mental disorder.
