AP Poll: Majority of Americans have negative view of Blacks

Here is a very important piece on a public opinion poll conducted for the Associated Press.  The survey asked about Americans attitudes toward American Blacks.  Here are the results from the Associated Press as featured in the Washington Post . The piece is notable for several reasons.

1) It is rare to see an article detailing peoples attitudes toward a racial group.
2) The story provoked a huge, honest, and unfiltered discussion as detailed in the comments. There were over 5000 comments.
3) The anonymity of the internet lets people express their true feelings; including their honest, racist views.
 You also have to read the comments to get a full and board idea of peoples individual attitudes.
