This must be a bitter pill to swallow.
“NEW YORK — As the decision in Kentucky to bring charges against only one of three police officers involved in a raid that killed Breonna Taylor sparks renewed protests nationwide, a new survey finds support has fallen for demonstrations against systemic racism.
The poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds that 44% of Americans disapprove of protests in response to police violence against Black Americans, while 39% approve. In June, 54% approved. The new survey was conducted Sept. 11-14, before Wednesday’s announcement that a lone Louisville police officer would be charged in the Taylor case, but not for her actual death. …
The new poll finds the recent shift in opinion is pronounced among white Americans and Republicans, whose views on police violence and racial inequity in policing look closer to the way they did in 2015 after the high-profile police killings of several Black men. Just 35% of white Americans approve of the protests now, while 50% disapprove. In June, 53% approved, while 34% disapproved.
Among Latinos, 31% approve, compared with 44% in June; 63% of Black Americans support the protests, down from 81%, with more now saying they neither approve nor disapprove. …”
This poll was taken before the two cops were shot last night in Louisville. Public opinion has done a 180 on the issue since June. It has begun to dawn on more non-blacks (Hispanic and Asian support for BLM has also plunged) that there is no limiting principle to “equity” and “antiracism.”
If racial gaps are proof that blacks are being oppressed by “systemic racism,” then it follows that Asians are oppressing them even more than Whites because the gaps are even greater. Hispanics are also oppressing them. The system itself is racist and illegitimate. “Equity” is achieved when a black thug or a White anarchist burns a down a Vietnamese restaurant in a riot in Minneapolis. The owner of the Vietnamese restaurant is reduced to their level through the destruction of their property.
How do you tell blacks that they are victims of “systemic racism” and walk that back once the polling turns and it becomes a liability for Democrats? Did they think this through?
