Do We Still Have the ‘Bradley Effect’?

Stop Dog Whistle Racism posted a link to a piece yesterday by Pat Morrison questioning if the Bradley Effect still exists. Morrison writes about two differences between Obama and former L.A. mayor Tom Bradley: Bradley hardly if ever mentioned race in his politics while Obama has “confronted race forthright”; and people polled today seem more willing to openly reveal their bias towards someone of another race.

It seems that at least one Florida teacher isn’t concerned about sharing his racism with his student.  As Bart Motes writes on HuffPost, the teacher wrote this on his chalkboard: “C.H.A.N.G.E. — Come Help A N—-r Get Elected.”
