Recently released results from the Public Religion Research Institute hold seriously bad news for the long term viability of the Democrats and Barack Obama’s chances of reelection. The pollsters spoke to adults between the ages of 18 and 24 about their views on race relations, and their findings were surprising.
One of the questions they asked these young people centered on whether they thought the government paid too much attention to the complaints of blacks and minorities in general. They were asked about the existence of reverse discrimination and if it was a problem in their view.
These young people – “millennials” as they are labeled by sociologists- don’t seem to be following the Democrats’ script on how they should think about racial issues. Almost half of them (46%) believe the government pays too much attention to the complaints of minorities, and 48% feel that discrimination against whites is a considerable problem.
When the responses from minorities were removed to count only the responses from white millennials (who represent 2/3 of the millennial population), a sizable majority (56%) agreed that the government caters to the concerns of minorities too much. This is not good news for a Democrat Party that so heavily relied on “white guilt” to elect an unqualified black man as our president.
This is a hammer blow to the race-hustling world view of the Democrat Party and it’s main “white guilt” salesmen like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Young white people have been taught a conflicting message, and the framers of that message will reap the destruction it brings.
A lifetime of listening to baseless charges that they have somehow discriminated against minorities is apparently not being passively accepted by white millennials. They don’t feel guilty of discrimination toward minorities. Apparently, a majority of them are beginning to compare the devastating effect “Affirmative Action” programs have had on their innocent parents and older siblings to the unwarranted preferential treatment of minorities by our government and refusing to smile and accept their undeserved punishment.
If there is worse news for the Democrats in regards to white millennials, it’s that they are just beginning to vote.
