They are not born to be, they are taught to be.
This is establishment propaganda I have heard many a times from left leaning news sources, and?
It is scientifically false. In fact, the exact opposite is true.
In both mammals and birds, implicit bias is born into organisms. It must be unlearned.
Only the highly educated are not prone to In-Group bias against Out-Groups. The very ignorant will search for theories and statistics to support their In-Group bias.
Take for example these crimes stats that the ignorant bigots keep posting.
If you recalculated these stats, but instead of controlling for race, you controlled for education and income? You would not see so much difference.
Folks see what they want to see to justify their IN-GROUP, implicit bias, which is biologically programmed.
Only through education, and empathy training is something all higher ordered animals that are born with, can folks overcome a very primitive survival mechanisms.
It is no different in any type of population dynamic; black, white, Asian, middle-eastern, straight, gay, young, old, folks gravitate to their own.
Face it Ben. . . You have been indoctrinated in some bullshit propaganda not based on sound biological, psychological, and social science. It is nothing but political B.S.
