RACISM: Let me get this straight - racist Democrats?

The teaser text in my feed said, "Deep-seated misgivings about blacks among some Democrats could cost Obama the White House"!

Say what? Sum a dem Dems is racist? No! Can't be?
Though that argument is countered by Obama’s strong primary performance is [sic] mostly white states like Iowa, the AP-Yahoo News survey, conducted with Stanford University, found one-third of white Democrats harbor negative views toward blacks — many calling them “lazy,” “violent” or responsible for their own troubles.
That's right, Dems!

But it won't matter one whit, Republicans have already been warned that if the man from Illinois is not elected, it will be because of the GOP, conservatives, evangelicals, and people like Sarah Palin. (Did I miss anyone?) So the blame will be placed squarely on our shoulders no matter how he loses, period.
Certainly, Republican John McCain has his own obstacles: He’s an ally of an unpopular president and would be the nation’s oldest first-term president. But Obama faces this: 40 percent of all white Americans hold at least a partly negative view toward blacks, and that includes many Democrats and independents.

More than a third of all white Democrats and independents — voters Obama can’t win the White House without — agreed with at least one negative adjective about blacks, according to the survey, and they are significantly less likely to vote for Obama than those who don’t have such views.

Such numbers are a harsh dose of reality in a campaign for the history books. Obama, the first black candidate with a serious shot at the presidency, accepted the Democratic nomination on the 45th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, a seminal moment for a nation that enshrined slavery in its Constitution.
I certainly hope this survey is wrong, I don't like phobias in any form ... and I hate hate.
