I haven’t read the report cited in the following article, but I wonder who blacks hate and how the hatred of whites is playing out in these surveys.
Muslims are easy to dislike because their killing sprees are often big and spectacular. Blacks quietly toil away, killing one person at a time. I suspect that blacks are deadlier than Muslims relative to their percentages in the population.
Muslims are the most disapproved group in America, according to a new study, amid increasing anti-Muslim rhetoric from conservative politicians.
A new study from sociologists at the University of Minnesota, which analysed Americans’ perceptions of minority faith and racial groups, found that their disapproval of Muslims has almost doubled from about 26 per cent 10 years ago to 45.5 per cent in 2016.
Amid increasing focus on immigration, refugees and national security and in the wake of multiple terrorist attacks around the world, the study found that almost half of those surveyed would not want their child to marry a Muslim, compared to just 33.5 per cent of people a decade earlier.

The report found that anti-Muslim violence spiked after the attacks on the Twin Towers in 2001, as did attacks on Sikh Americans, who are often confused with Muslim Americans.
“Even the generally tolerant millennials exhibit relatively strong anti-Muslim sentiments,” the report read.
Hussein Rashid, a professor at Barnard College in New York, told Religion News that the spike in intolerance is reflected by current political rhetoric.
“In 10 years, people have a more negative perception of Muslims, Jews, gays, Latinos, and Blacks,” he said.
“As a new America is taking shape, with all its diversity, there is a reactionary response that wants a mythic America of everyone being exactly the same.”
The survey, completed by 2,521 people between February 2014 and March 2016, found that Jews, Latinos and Asian-Americans also saw their disapproval ratings jump by about 10 points each.
Atheists were the second most disapproved group in the US, as they were associated with a “lack of morals”.
The news comes as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has announced that 2016 is on track to be one of the worst years for anti-mosque incidents, with 55 cases reported as of mid-September. There were 79 incidents in 2015.
“This trend of increasing violence targeting the American Muslim community is deeply troubling,” said CAIR national executive director Nihad Awad.
He added that 2016 was one of the worst years on record, involving vandalism, intimidation and physical assault.
“It is important for presidential candidates and other public figures to unify Americans against hate,” he added.
“Any American should be able to freely practise his or her religion without fear of harm or intimidation.”
Muslims can practice their religion. The problem with them is that they’re often obnoxious and certainly try to dictate terms to the majority.
As to presidents, unifying Americans against hate is not a prerequisite for the job. Not if the hate is righteous and justified.
If Muslims don’t like it, then they can just return to their turd world homelands and f*ck goats or whatever.
