I’m not surprised at the results of this study, but I am surprised it didn’t get suppressed — though of course, the Leftist media will ignore it. Way too much truth for the Left to handle! Via Source: White liberals ‘patronize’ minorities by downplaying competence — conservatives don’t.
White liberals present themselves as less competent when addressing minorities, while conservatives use the same vocabulary no matter what the race of their audience, according to a newly released study.Yale and Princeton researchers found that white Democratic presidential candidates and self-identified liberals played down their competence when speaking to minorities, using fewer words that conveyed accomplishment and more words that expressed warmth. On the other hand, there were no significant differences in how white conservatives, including Republican presidential candidates, spoke to white versus minority audiences.“White liberals self-present less competence to minorities than to other Whites — that is, they patronize minorities stereotyped as lower status and less competent,” according to the study’s abstract. Cydney Dupree, assistant professor of organizational behavior at the Yale School of Management, said she was surprised by the findings of the study, which sought to discover how “well-intentioned whites” interact with minorities.
This explains why the Left — including the “Christian” Left — is so patronizing to minorities. Rachel Held Evans is a typical example, where she often says how we need to read black female writers, but never explains why. But Leftists like her think that they are virtuous because they pat minorities on the head. Predictable, but sickening. Conservatives act virtuously towards minorities, but Leftists just react in meaningless and hypocritical ways and think that qualifies as good works on their part.
Here’s another example. Sadly, this seems to work on minorities.
