What, me racist?

Proof of what your blogstress has been saying: We white folks are still in denial about our racial prejudice. Offenders of whom to be most wary: white liberals. Why? If in denial about our possession of this most fundamental of American traits, we can do more damage than all the Klansmen in Georgia. From the recent CNN/Opinion Research poll:

Almost half of black respondents -- 49 percent -- said racism is a "very serious" problem, while 18 percent of whites shared that view. Forty-eight percent of whites and 35 percent of blacks chose the description "somewhat serious."

Asked if they know someone they consider racist, 43 percent of whites and 48 percent of blacks said yes.

But just 13 percent of whites and 12 percent of blacks consider themselves racially biased.
