I sorta missed the point of the poll, I guess.
Whites–and everyone else–would be quite accurate in assessing that blacks as a group are much more violent than whites in the US. I’ve never seen any crime statistics to the contrary and the difference is substantial.
“Lazy” and “responsible for their own troubles” are judgment calls using perjorative adjectives indeed, but it’s not as if there is no observational evidence for taking those positions. Again, we are speaking of broad generalizations in differences among large groups and not an evaluation of a given individual.
And the poll further reminds us that blacks as a group are almost overwhelmingly in favor of Obama. So apparently blacks as a group shouldn’t be characterized as bigots–they are just voting positions–but whites who hold to generalizations about blacks or who want to vote their clan can be classified as bigots.
I’m not sure I agree with the assumption that all individuals who hold negative (if accurate) stereotypes about a group’s average behaviour would be less inclined to vote for an individual who clearly is not stereotypical. I’d say Mr Obama is as likely to pick up votes from those who want to cheer on an exception to the stereotype as he is to lose votes from those who let their stereotypes extend to an individual.
