    And what do you supose happens to a dimwit black man who is exposed to left wing ideologies and low levels of contact with out-groups?

    Is the outcome really that shocking a revelation?

    Apparently, they become a racist, xenophobe with homophobia, who hides it to fit in with his left-wing ideologue friends.

    Question though: Why is the "dimwit" in your example a black man?

    Did anyone say the study was focused on white people?

    Research from the United Kingdom - where the definition of 'right wing' is pretty damned different to the US.

    Just sayin'.

    In the last topic on this study, some other dimwit got all focused on black voters. So I am just being pre-emptive this time.

    And I think you will find the black community actually is one of the most homophobic demographics. You will also find their own brand of racism as well. Both toward whites and toward immigrants.

    Yeah that is only 3 or 4 days old now...

    I was waiting for some progressive fuck to post that.

    Truth is that there are communists in this world and they exist at any and most levels of of institution, especially in academics who have a grudge for anyone who challenges them and their collectivist ideas or in their mind theories. And those collectivists are communists and it is their goal to paint anyone who disagrees with them (in their mind their opposition) as retarded people, in an attempt to discredit them.

    The funny part is that conservatism has no political boundaries...

    Besides, those with "low IQ's" would be unable to even rationalize conservatism, let alone liberalism...

    I have some experience with individuals who are retarded and ideas are out of their realm. Many could learn an idea however not fully embrace the idea.

    The purpose of that "study" was to paint "conservatives" in a bad light.

    I think ANYONE who is "mentally challenged" would have a high tendency to be biased - not only that but violent.

    I'm missing where I made a personal comment on this study at all.

    I simply posted the study summary, with sourcing, sans any comments whatsoever.

    The only comment I made was to why another poster talked about black people.

    So WTF is up with all the personal attacks and neg rep?

    Understood.

    And yes, generally, you are correct in your assessment of homophobia in the black community, I won't deny that. Also in the Hispanic community.

    There is also reverse racism, also true. How prevalent it is I do not know, but yes, it is there.

    The study was based on general population trends, however, and I believe it was conducted in the UK, where there is a much smaller minority population.
