Whether it’s the supposed “War on Christmas” or the “desanctification of marriage” by allowing equal rights to the gay community… or the Donald Trump supporters who are exceedingly Islamophobic, White Republicans are pissed off all of the time lately, it seems.
And studies show that, as we can guess from TV and news, they are enraged A LOT of the time. Almost 3/4 of white people said that they become angry about current events in America at least once a day.
Nearly half of Americans are angry, and no groups are angrier than whites and Republicans, according to a new NBC News/Survey Monkey/Esquire online poll about outrage in the country.
Overall, 49 percent of Americans said they find themselves feeling angrier now about current events than they were one year ago. Whites are the angriest, with 54 percent saying they have grown more outraged over the past year. That’s more than Latinos (43 percent) and African-Americans (33 percent).
Seventy-three percent of whites said they get angry at least once per day, compared with 66 percent of Hispanics and 56 percent of blacks.
The poll also found Republicans are angrier than Democrats. Sixty-one percent of Republicans say current events irk them more today than a year ago, compared to 42 percent of Democrats. NBC News
In all fairness, I do not affiliate with any party and I get mad about current events all of the time. I don’t know about every day, but fairly often…
What about you?
