Both whites and blacks feel like they are under attack because of race
Nearly half of white Americans living in the South feel like they’re under attack, a new Winthrop Poll found.So much for the racial healing under the Democrats. I really do think Democrats have done the most to stir the fears of both races. Democrats think it is in their interests to make blacks feel oppressed and therefore needing them, and they have been attacking whites in recent years.
Forty-six percent of white Southerners said they agree or strongly agree that white people are under attack in the U.S. More than three-fourths of black respondents said they believe racial minorities are under attack.
And 30 percent of all respondents in the poll agreed that America must protect and preserve its white European heritage. More than half of respondents disagreed with the statement.
Forty percent of respondents also said they believed that Confederate statues should remain as is, while nearly a quarter said a plaque should be added to contextualize the statue.
Twenty-seven percent of respondents said the statues should be moved to a museum. Nearly half of black respondents said the statues should be in museums, and a quarter said they should be completely removed.
Southerners overall said that racism was the most important issue facing the U.S., and black respondents were twice as likely to say it was the most important issue.
