SPLC: ‘More Than Half of White Americans’ Anti-Black

potok-finger-racistDuring an interview with CNN last week, Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center boldly claimed that more than half of white Americans hate blacks.

While discussing whether or not white on black crime has increased in recent years, Potok argued that a drastic rise was evident, alluding that American whites have become more racist due to a black president.

“Well I think the best data shows that in fact anti-black racism has risen over the last four or five years,” Potok said. “There’s polling that shows that both implicit and explicit anti-black attitudes among American whites have gone up quite significantly between 2008 and 2012 to the point where now more than half of white Americans have these anti-black attitudes.”

CNN contributor Reihan Salam, visibly shocked by Potok’s assertions, pointed to the massive strides gained in American race relations.

“I think that’s extremely misleading,” Salam said. “You’ll see for example that one out of 12 marriages in the United States are now interracial marriages.”

Salam also went on to highlight the fact that the definition of racism has drastically changed, with certain groups attempting to find racism in places it may not actually exist.

“The thing is, people are getting very creative in what they are characterizing as racism,” Salam added. “When you look at hard statistics like interracial marriages, interracial friendships, when you look at the level of racial segregation, you’ve seen enormous progress over time and I think that we should celebrate it.”

In an attempt to defend his position, Potok quickly jumped to his own organization’s statistics, claiming that American hate groups are at epidemic levels.

“We’ve also seen an enormous growth over the last 15 years or so in the number of hate groups, primarily white supremacist groups from about 600 in 2000 to more than 1,000 today,” Potok said.

While the SPLC does list some legitimate hate groups on their website, political groups with no connection to racism whatsoever now fill the vast majority of space.

Groups such as Oath Keepers, an organization filled with military, police and firefighters who support their oath to the Constitution, have been labeled as hateful and racist by the SPLC. In its desperate attempt to demonize any group that questions government corruption, the SPLC has even gone as far as labeling alternative media outlet We Are Change as racist as well.

In a surprising move, Salam went on to note the SPLC’s massive wealth increase in recent years, commenting on the groups need for increased racism to remain relevant and lucrative.

“But another thing is we have organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center that really have grown enormously in recent years. For example, in 1995 the SPLC had net assets of about $52 million, in 2011 they had net assets over $250 million and this is not a period of time during which racism increased by a factor of five, rather they have been able to grow by drawing on instances of this kind and then weaving them into a story about racism growing,” Salam said.

“Racism is real. It needs to be combated, but we also need to be weary of people who profit form the perception that racism is something that it is not, which is to say a growing phenomenon.”

Potok attempted to deny the allegation, claiming none of the evidence cited was produced by the SPLC to get wealthy, despite the groups ever-growing list of alleged “patriot” hate groups expanding alongside their wealth.

Just last year, the SPLC’s CEO J. Richard Cohen sent a letter to former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Attorney General Eric Holder, claiming the need to investigate the country’s alleged “patriot” domestic terror threat.

“Utilizing the standard SPLC modus operandi and fear tactics, Cohen conflates a small number of racist white supremacist groups with the larger and more diverse patriot community,” noted Infowars’ Kurt Nimmo. “He also characterizes growing concern on the part of millions of Americans in response to egregious violations of the Constituion as dangerous…”

To no surprise, an August 2009 Freedom of Information Act request revealed that Homeland Security’s “right-wing extremism” reports were not based on any legitimate evidence, but random articles found on the SPLC’s website.

While constantly labeling Constitution-supporting Americans from all races as dangerous, the SPLC itself is generating hate and violence.

Just last year, a man opened fire inside the building of a conservative Christian lobbying group in Washington D.C. after seeing the organization listed as a hate group on the SPLC’s website.

As Americans from all races celebrate moving forward together, groups such as the SPLC will continue to fans the flames of racism, capitalizing on the racial division they create.

    SPLC has used the U.S. FEDERAL GOVERNMENT to push its ZIONNIST AGENDA …

    … over the past 5 – years of the OBAMA ADMINISTRATION!


    If what the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION of WHITE PEOPLE is saying about the SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER is UNTRUE the NAAWP invites the SPLC to FILE SUIT against U.S. in open court – The NAAWP says to the SPLC – “PUT UP or SHUT DOWN your ZIONNIST ORGANIZATION!”

    The $PLC has always $UCKED, but the FBI proved it on 03-26-2014!

    Now for the RE$T of the ZIONNI$T $TORY:

    The $outhern Poverty Law Center was once considered a trouble making organization by law enforcement till Obama accepted them with open arms… Now FBI removes link to $outhern Poverty Law Center from its website, may continue using as resource after pressure from citizens

    Christian groups are celebrating with the news that the Federal Bureau of Investigation appears to have scrubbed the $outhern Poverty Law Center ($PLC) from its hate crimes webpage, where the controversial group was listed as a resource and referred to as a partner in public outreach.

    A letter to the U.S. Department of Justice, drafted by Lieutenant General (Ret.) William G. Boykin, Executive Vice President of the Family Research Council (FRC), calls such an association “completely unacceptable.”
    Signed by fourteen other conservative and Christian leaders, the letter calls SPLC “a heavily politicized organization producing inaccurate and biased data on ‘hate groups’ – not hate crimes.” It accuses the $PLC of “providing findings that are not consistent with trends found in the FBI statistics.” Where the FBI has found hate crimes and hate groups declining significantly in the past ten years, $PLC claims hate groups have increased 67.3% since 2000. Where once SPLC’s hate list was reserved for groups like the Aryan Nation and the KKK, in 2010 $PLC started citing as hate groups those Christian groups that oppose same-sex marriage or believe homosexuality is not inborn, or are otherwise critical of homosexuality. Among the Christian groups targeted by $PLC was FRC.


    NATIONAL ASSOCIATION for the ADVANCEMENT of WHITE PEOPLE applauds the FBI’S decision to back away from the ZIONNI$T BA$$TURDS over at the $OUTHERN POVERTY LAW $INNER$ and the INFAMOU$ ANTI-DEFACATION LEAGUER$ on MARCH 26, 2014.

    The NAAWP has always DESIGNATED the $PLC & the ADL as ANTI-WHITE, ANTI-CHRISTIAN, ANTI-CONSERVATIVE., PR-ABORTION ZIONNIST HATE GROUPS and the FBI basically verified our BELIEFS on 03-26-2014.

    ​ I heard something years ago….there are two kinds of hate.

    1) Hate is anger turned in on yourself and then protecting it onto others; in other words…some people just don’t want to deal with “their own hate, rage and anger and take it out on others.

    2) Then there is anger which comes from experiencing or watching injustice happen to others due to hate, and rage.

    Please think about this, okay? IF you have the opportunity to Google a man named “Gerren Lyles (or Liles)”. He is a black poet in NY that my family has known for years. He wrote a small book “The ‘Road to Damascus.”
    Basically, he explains the Black rage and hate? Blacks do NOT love themselves and protect their anger and rage OUT at the whites to make it all better.
    We can’t. We tried through Affirmative Action. I am an ol’ gal, and have had many many experiences from that time of ​Affirmative Action in teaching the black population their jobs…so they could climb in their chosen professions.

    I worked for the City of Dallas in the Department of Planning and Development. I was a permanent temp and floated all around the departments. The Opening came up for a Permanent person in the job I was in as an Administrative Assistant to the Director. There were 57 women in the department and only 3 of those were white.
    They really didn’t want the job because it “wasn’t UNION”..but they didn’t want a white woman to have it either

    I had learned to carry a hand-held pocket recorder because I had been threatened so many times. I was pulled off in a stairwell and slammed against a brick wall. She had her elbow at my throat and a double-long form of acrylic nail jabbing me between the eyes warning NOT to apply for the job.

    I had to replace all of my tires on my car twice due to them being slashed. Finally I started parking two blocks away and walked at night to get to my car (carrying a gun in my coat pocket because I had been threatened so many times.

    We trained them. I invited each one to lunch at one time or another and each one refused “UNLESS” she needed something from me.

    It is the sign of the time. There is confict evevry where and the Media and the neo com keep loking for an enemy so they look for evil in every thing. Hopefully Obama keeps on with his effort to turn enemies into friend. I we can get McCain and his masters, as well as the Media, to look for a spark of hope he may make it. Putin is TRYING to bring Russia up to what it was before the Soviet Union, a civilized country constantly put down by the “balance of power” rule of the West, only two powers rule and one for balancing the two. The facts is that in same states, motly South, Blacks are still a thorn, but in the South West, once loved Latino are following the same path of violence which turns into exasperation for peacefull people. Add the Gay issue, etc etc. enough already!. Give them all their legal rights, no more no less that the rest of us. Incidentally, what about the Mormon, their right to marry as many wives as they wish???? It never end does it?????
    Look for peace, look for the good point, if they do not listen, well
    let them hang themselves.

      THEY DO SEE COLOR. They DO beat us over the head with their color.
      There was a Black Poet that used to live in Dallas. He is now in NY. He wrote a little poetry book; and in it he states: “Blacks hate themselves for being black.”

      They reach out for the Whites to give into them, then hey’ll be happy. We tried through Affirmative Action. I worked with many African Americans and we were constantly getting beat over the head that we still didn’t do enough for them.
