A new USA Today/Pew survey says blacks percieve race relations as worsening.
"...64 percent of African Americans think blacks and whites get along "very well" or "pretty well" -- down from 76 percent five years ago."
Race relations have not been helped by the fact that nearly all criticism of President Obama gets labeled as racist. That's not to say that none of anti-Obama fervor is based on bigotry, but most of the rancor is due to our increasingly partisan politics.
High profile cases like the murder of Trayvon Martin or numerous shootings of unarmed men by police, including Mike Brown, cannot be ignored. Sadly, race and politics play out there too. Sure there are bigots who see any beating or shooting of black men as justified. There are others who simply must oppose their political opponents. If Al Sharpton says the sky is blue, they argue that it is green(the far left does the same thing when a conservative speaks on an issue). The sad thing about all of the madness is that truth and decency get lost in the shuffle.
