What’s Your ‘Racial Resentment Index’ Number?

As Forrest Gump famously said, “Some days there just aren’t enough rocks.”

Here’s the latest in a long line of mainstream media dribble:

Obama’s race may well explain his difficulty in winning over white voters. In the NEWSWEEK Poll, participants were asked to answer questions on a variety of race-related topics including racial preferences, interracial marriage, attitudes toward social welfare and general attitudes toward African-Americans. Respondents were grouped according to their answers on a “Racial Resentment Index.”

On a scale of 1 to 10, my “Newsweek Resentment Index” is at a 10. It makes me wish I wouldn’t have cancelled my subscription years ago just so I could cancel it again.

I wouldn’t mind if this also worked the other way around by indexing people who vote for Obama just because he’s black — but then if it made sense and was fair and unbiased, it wouldn’t be the Newsweek liberal propaganda machine we all know and love to make fun of.
