More Blacks are Conservative than Liberal: Who's the "Race Traitor" Now?

More on that new Gallup poll...

In it, more blacks (30 percent) say they are conservative than say they are liberal (22 percent). 47 percent say they are moderate.

(Yet, liberal U.S. Senators are planning to filibuster a qualified black judicial nominee because she's not liberal -- as if not being liberal makes her some kind of race traitor. Maybe the true race traitors are Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and their ilk.)

The corresponding numbers for whites are 43 percent conservative, 18 percent liberal and 38 percent moderate.
