Barack Obama doesn't care about black people.
Has there been a president that cared about anybody?
Of course he doesn't. Black folks are worse off now than when he took office.
High unemployment with no end in sight, more debt and regulations which dampen the economy, fewer affordable insurance options than ever...
I'd call that worse off.
Of course he cares about black people
This is just skar making a poll to see how bad the reactions are. But yes, he does care for them
Has any US president gave a shit about black people?
The first President that comes to mind is Lincoln
Lincoln's concern was northern business interests more than black slaves, but I guess if he seen them as humans then he cared about them compared to ppl of his time.
I can't say that Mr. Obama doesn't care about black, white, Hispanic, etc, but his policies have not helped the American people as much as they thought the policies would.
That's typical of US presidents, any real change has always came from the people because most of our presidents suck
Post it again with real answers!
I agree. This is a good question but there should've been a no option
You are better than this!
I do not approve of this question.
Regardless of whether you agree with it (which is ridiculous) doesn't change the fact that it isn't a well-structured question.
This poll is stupid.
I can't speak for the President. However, my opinion of how the Democratic Party as a whole sees black people is not very flattering.
I humbly beg to differ, but either way this polls is,just bad.
The poll is unabashedly biased. And I'm sure we differ in opinion on many subjects, Matt :) I still like you though!
We've actually been agreeing more often than not, and I'm including politics. I still like people I disagree with, so you too
I thought you and I were worlds apart in opinions! Maybe not though :) Agreeing with someone has zero bearing on whether I like them. It's nice to agree, but I like to hear opposing points of view as well.
I think it depends on the issue between us
Definitely. You and I actually have a lower agreement percentage than that of most of my followers/those I follow. Most people are somewhere in the 60-65% range, while we are less than 55%. I am constantly looking for people who are less than 50%.
If you don't think democrats views blacks favorably then you must think the GOP is the KKK
Abolitionist, I don't support the GOP's treatment of blacks, either. But at least they're known to be elitist pricks. The Dems hide behind historic 'support' of minorities but don't give 2 shits for blacks. Theirs is a far more insidious hatred.
Blacks have always dealt with white supremacy and had to choose the lesser of the 2 evils and the more hostile party towards them is always in the south, when the south starts voting democrat again, I'll agree with you but until then...
Come on man, I even had to rate this down
If you are going to post a question like this. Give me the option to disagree with you.
It was meant to be a joke, but whatever.
Skar what was the point of this?
There was no point. I posted it because I felt like it. I knew that it would be received negatively, but I'm impressed at how low its rating is already. It seems like people get easier to piss off every day.
What were your best hopes for this poll? What did you WANT people to do with it?
I don't know. I don't always have a purpose for my polls, but you've probably inferred that by now.
Well, I'm just sort of floundering around here, not knowing what to do or how to feel about the choice you gave us. Do you see it from our perspective at all?
I can see why people would view the poll negatively, but I don't understand why it got the overwhelming negative response that it did.
Really? The structure makes it impossible to vote with any legitimacy unless one agrees with the statement. How is it a GOOD poll if people can only answer one way? One of the very few things I down-rate a poll for is answers like that.
Excuse me, when did I say that it was a good poll?
Well, that's the alternative to rating it as a BAD poll. (Another alternative being not rating at all.) Understand I'm not angry; just (still) perplexed.
I just didn't think that people would be so pissed about it. I figured that it would maybe get one or two comments about how bad of a poll it was, and then nobody would care in the end.
