Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, September 10, 2017

A new study shows that people who support President Donald Trump are angered and shift their thinking to more reactionary politics when confronted with a photo of a black man, reported Vox.com on Friday. Researchers spoke with 700 white voters about their support for housing assistance programs, but -- in a twist -- the materials they were shown contained "a subtle image of either a white or a black man." "They found that the image of a black man greatly impacted responses among Trump supporters. After they were exposed to the black racial cue, they were not only less supportive of housing assistance programs, but they also expressed higher levels of anger that some people receive government assistance and were more likely to say that individuals who receive assistance are to blame for their situation," said Lopez.

Trump voters are racist rubes. This study proves what most of us already knew.

But racism was eliminated in the 60's wasn't it?

oh is that why conservatives (and some fake liberals) like to tell me that i'm a racist. (I can't be racist, my wife is white. That's more impressive than your "black friend")

This article isn't written to advance sociology discussion. It's a hit piece meant to elicit clicks (Money) on a web site by feeding some people a position with which they already agree.

That's why it contains no links to the actual study in the article.

The study is available for direct download in the article, free of charge.

Please let me know your thoughts and potential follow up studies you would like to see.

I assume you already looked very hard for the link. Computer difficulties are so annoying. Here it is again: drive.google.com

Some of the variables of this study are laughable.

Stupid study, the sight of black men provokes a measure of distrust and alarm among all groups, including other black people. For good reason. About half of murder victims are black in the USA. 95% are killed by other black men. But not all are guilty, the killers are young black men between 16 and 30- so around half of murders in this country are committed by less then 3 percent of the population, making them about 30 tomes more likely to commit such acts.
