Widespread Prejudice

A revealing poll released by the Associated Press suggests that the majority of Americans (51 percent) express "explicit anti-Black attitudes," up from 48 percent taken from a similar poll in 2008. These leanings could cost President Obama 5 percentage points off his share of the popular vote against Republican challenger Mitt Romney, the AP writes.  (Photo: AFP PHOTO/Nicholas KAMM)
