Racial Prejudice Has Declined In Trump Era

Of course, the study that tells us this and the Washington Post attempt to spin it away as something else, in a way that almost seems to be Blaming him, but, remember, racial prejudice skyrocketed during the Obama era

Racial prejudice has declined as a reaction to Trump’s presidency, a new study suggests

Donald Trump began his campaign for the presidency by branding Mexicans as “rapists.” He initially declined to denounce David Duke, the former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. One week after his 2017 inauguration, the president temporarily banned people from seven mostly Muslim countries from entering the United States. That summer, he said there were “very fine people” among torch-wielding white supremacists who descended on Charlottesville.

Mexican and Muslim are not races. Oh, and don’t forget the Democrats lauding Robert KKK Byrd for decades

Now, those who are seeking to deny President Trump a second term say their mission is not only replacing him in the Oval Office but also leading Americans back from their own baser instincts.

Joe Biden said he is engaged in a “battle for the soul of this nation.”

And Sen. Kamala D. Harris, the Democrat of California, said Trump “isn’t trying to make America great; he’s trying to make America hate.”

Has he succeeded?

Narrator: no, but they’ll find a way to make him be at fault for the nation being less racially intolerant

A new study by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania suggests there is room for doubt, despite rising incidents of hate crimes, notably in the very counties that hosted a Trump rally in 2016.

Racial prejudice has not increased among white Americans since the explosive 2016 election, argues political scientist Daniel J. Hopkins. It has actually decreased by some measures, he found, possibly as a reaction to Trump’s unexpected ascension to the White House.

Hopkins said the results initially surprised him. Upon reflection, however, “it’s quite conceivable that Trump has simultaneously galvanized a small number of highly prejudiced white Americans while also pushing millions more to affirm that they are not as prejudiced,” he argued.

In other words, Hopkins believes the study provides evidence that the racially incendiary rhetoric and policies issuing from Trump’s White House have pushed the majority of Americans in the opposite direction.

Or it could be that we no longer have a president attempting to racially divide us like Obama, and the whole Black Lives Matter thing has quietly faded to the background. We aren’t seeing marches, racial grievance mongers all over the media, and all sorts of black power folks during sports.

Of course, for the racial grievance mongers, this would be a bad thing, because they depend on grievance and playing the Victim.

    Always amazes me how clueless many libs are on race. If Muslims were a race that would mean Christians are a race, also.
