Racial Fear Factors

Two...really three...magazines have purportedly [according to various emails originating in 2008 and 2010] published surveys with regard to cultural fears. The common heading of the surveys was this: What do People Fear Most? The magazines named are Ebony/Jet and Country Living. Ebony and Jet, though separate print magazines, are both published by Johnson Publications with ebonyjet.com being the web site.

Ebony and Jet have a Negro [read black] readership of 99.99%. Country Living has a white, a/k/a Caucasian, readership of 95.99% readership.

If you decide the surveys and their results are true that is your call. You could also say that the answers are pathetic but funny. That's is your call too. Of course you could write the entire thing off by saying it's nothing more than male bovine fecal matter. That, too, is your call and snopes.com wholeheartedly supports your opinion. Snopes.com screams false! Of course they would. Snopes has a left leaning bias after all. If you want to see Snopes's spin, check out their fear factor survey rationale.

Negros answers that their fears are: 1) ghosts, 2) dogs, 3) registered mail, 4) law enforcement, and 5) Fathers Day. Their beliefs help put Obama over the top.

Whites' top answers are: 1) nuclear war / terrorist attacks in the US, 2) child / spouse dying, 3) terminal illness, 4) unemployment, and 5) further economic downturn.

I close with two opposing quotations:

Obama said:
My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me, as we change it.
I read Obama's statement as this: He admits that we live in the world's greatest nation, but he wants to take it down.
