    but the only intelligent answer to a question like "do you believe blacks are trustworthy" or "do you believe that blacks are hardworking" is:

    "Some are.  Some aren't.  Don't ask me a stupid poll question that doesn't have a yes or no answer."

    The people who answer "yep, blacks sure are trustworthy" are betraying bigotry in their own way - or at least guilt.  Just like it's insulting to women to pretend that women are smarter than men (just because it's easier to make women applaud than to live in the doghouse, as Bill Maher said)  why isn't it insulting to blacks to pretend that they're ALL trustworthy just because, you know, you don't want to anger black folks?

    Here's a poll question:  "Are pollsters idiots when they design polls to meet predetermined outcomes?"
