Republicans Think White People Face As Much Racism As Black People

Republicans Think White People Face As Much Racism As Black People


Recently new research published in the journal
nature human behavior found out that Republicans here in the United States believe that white
people suffer from racism just as much as black people in this country. Here’s what the study found. White people and Republicans were found to
underestimate the amount of discrimination black people experienced. Republicans also tended to think that black
and white people face prejudice in more equal amounts than evidence suggests. That’s pretty obvious, right? We have had white Republicans in this country
for years now screaming reverse racism. Affirmative action is racist again against
white people. White people are going to become the new minority. And we hear that, and it’s not true. And this research proves that. Yeah, that’s not a thing that’s happening,
white Republicans. But there is something for the Democrats that’s
also not all that great, it said black people in Democrats tend to overestimate the racial
bias that blacks face. But at a level more in line with what data
suggests is the truth. So by a slim margin, Democrats and black people,
uh, think they’re more oppressed or prejudiced than they actually are. But that’s a very slim margin, right? They’re still overly prejudiced against here
in this country. They experienced racism, the likes of which
white people have never experienced in this country, and it’s ridiculous for these white
Republicans to go out there and say these silly talking points that, Oh yeah, white
people are just as oppressed and here’s the reason. The study looked into it a little bit deeper. They found that there is this theme typically
from the outright that whites are being replaced, the great replacement, is what they call it,
Tucker Carlson’s out there pushing it, saying that, Oh yeah, immigrants come in, they make
us dirty, or the whole country gets dirtier. They take your jobs, they take your benefits,
they take all of these things that you were supposed to have white people and now it belongs
to somebody who’s not white. Your being oppressed, you’re being discriminated
against, and as this study points out, it’s absolutely not true. Now, sure, there are instances of white people
being discriminated against in this country. Absolutely it exists, but nowhere near the
level that any other race in this country experiences. But among those on the right, the white Republicans
that this study talks about, they have this victim complex. They think that they experience it just as
bad as everyone else. Doesn’t matter that the data doesn’t back
it up. Doesn’t matter that they can’t actually provide
examples of it happening. They still think that it’s something that’s
real. This is a massively important study because
it lets us look into the mind, a little bit of Republican voters and understand why they
think the way they do. We know that racism drove a lot of people
to vote for Donald Trump. Some of it was overt racism. Some of it was just inherent racism that people
didn’t even realize they had. Just like in this study, not everybody who
says whites are prejudice just as much as blacks are is a racist. They just have a skewed vision. Yes, that is a racist trope that they’re holding
onto, but that doesn’t mean that they hate the other side. It just means that they are misinformed. It’s up to us to inform them. It’s up to us to explain to them that that’s
not how it happens. Show them the data, let them understand what’s
really happening in this country. And some of them, not all, probably not even
most, but some of them may come to their senses and understand that white people in America
have always had it pretty good.

    All the GOP has to do is look in a room full of their members and ask themselves if they are a reflection of the people that make up America?

    What white people face is class ism and class has nothing to do with race because most billionaires are white.They face what they face because they kiss the ass of those white people who are better off financially.

    instead of making LAWS TO PROTECT themselves (and EVERYONE) from discrimination, republicunts want to redefine racism.

    they have a really good reason to fear being the minority, HISTORY!
    THE PLIGHT OF THE NATIVE AMERICAN PEOPLE & BLACK SLAVERY are just the two worst examples in US History.

    I'm technically a Caucasian but never experienced any type of privilege as being such. In the federal government I earned a salary far below the national poverty line far less than my African American coworkers all of which earned far more with the same duties simply because I was hired under a schedule A authority(developmentally disabled).

    You will never change the mind of an Individual who has not walked in the shoes I have. I was a teenager walking about 6 houses from my house, going to the store, when a deputy pulled up on me and asked me for ID. He had a white dude in the back. He said he was looking for a black guy, smmfh! This was normal in my life. I'm 52, never had a criminal record, went to college and later worked for the same Sheriff's Office. What about that white people who discriminated against?

    Affirmative action is racism, why should your race have to play apart in you being accepted? As a Latino I’m insulted these people assume I need my skin to help me rather than the traditional standards.

    The only racism white people get may be a rare or occasional run in with a racist citizen. Depending. Yet, I don't see as many racist attacks from non white hate groups like the maaaaaaany that I have seen with White Supremacists of any group. Plus there's the thing where Police officers will do anything to bring in an armed white person alive even if that armed person is shooting at them, but seem to be trigger happy, depending on state and town/city, towards unarmed black people or someone like Philando Castile, who was a legal gun owner in an open carry state who was mercilessly shot to death because he thought it was his civic duty to tell the officers that he was a legal gun owner. Then there's the voters rights being taken away from non whites by Republican politicians just so those politicians can have a better chance at winning even though winning shouldn't be the point of the position especially if you plan to do nothing for your constituents, looking at you, Mitch and Lindsay.

    Many people fear the migrants and many white people fear black people. They fear they take their jobs, they fear the crimes which follow the migration and they fear they cannot protect themself if some kind of gun control is introduced. And fear makes people do bad things and Trump exploits it. If Bernie ignores that fear and just downplay it and cannot come up with a trustworthy policy to handle the endless migration. I fear he will lose.

    Now that I've stopped laughing I can say that after reflection I believe this idea comes from a lack of education. Also the racism people of color feel cannot be quantified in a study because the experience comes from attitudes & demeanor. I have also witnessed & experienced whites FEELING intimidated when it didn't seem appropriate. But I think the more we communicate the better things will get. Sometimes America seems like a bad marriage…. in which one partner is satisfied & the other is suffering.

    Yeah, right. The poor mistreated white people.
    They can't go shopping, eat out, walk on the street, engage in social activities, be working, or stopping at a traffic light. Without being harassed by blacks demanding where they are going. Being told to identify themselves. Or having the law officers call on them.
    Give me a break.
    Yeah, America.

    I am White, Female, Physically Disabled, Strong Minded & I can say with certainty, I continue to be discriminated against, retaliated against, hated, abused, oppressed, denied financial stability (as no one hires you with absentee propensities), etc., due to my combined person, BY other Whites due to what they accept as disabilities, yes I said Whites, my Special Ed child is experiencing the same in DG School Dist. 58 as they do not follow IEP. Even SSA will not make accommodations in their policies under Special Circumstances & would rather see someone homeless in order to receive Full SSI instead of assisting prior to that point. I can say I DO know what Rosa Parks was up against & I love what she stood for & stood up for!!!
    But we know how bad the Republicans are & how dishonest they are!!!

    Republicans have always been delusional. Being racist is the code for them. They no nothing about people of color. Instead they judge people of color through stereotypes and their policies are based upon those stereotypes. . They're scared to death about becoming a minority in the future because of the things they know that they did and still do will come right back on them.

    I had a Mexican coworker that told me many times that he hates Mexicans, and, even now, I wonder where he was going with it. I think he figured that I was racist. On the other side, there is a white guy that lives close to me, that I just let me know that he was racist towards Mexicans. I guess he also figured that I was racist and assumed that I agreed with him 🤨

    It's quite the scam the GOP have set up, ain't it? They tell their voters, "You're being repressed!" Then said voters vote against their own interests for the GOP when those same GOP then reveal their real platform: Endlessly handing over more wealth, power, and control to the corporations and elite.

    I despise racism however, these days I have to admit, I have had a lot of racist remarks made to me for being white and I hardly ever hear other white people make negative comments about people of colour, mainly cause I mix with good people. I think racism exists from both sides. The priveledged republicans however, amplify this negativity to keep all of us working class people attacking each other. It is something we all need to work on and those Republican Senators are the ones we should be taking on and removing. We all need to stand in unity.

    If you want to talk about racism, specifically of the system variety, white people face more by far in America. Name me a system that objectively says "Black people will have X disadvantage." Show me a business, educational institution, Grant or scholarship, or anything of the sort that is white only and completely socially acceptable. It chafes the progressive mindset I know, but black Americans are a protected class at this point.

    Only people who can go to heaven are real people to conservatives. White Christian conservatives consider their religion White. White Christian conservatives don't expect to be seeing any blacks or Jews in heaven. It's one of the things they can't say out loud because they know they have to lie.

    The problem with saying that Black people OVER estimate racism, is that how do you actually measure that? Racism is endemic and infectious. And also has about as much to do with hate and rape has to do with sex. So how do you prove that a person who is perpetuation racism if to them it doesn’t exist because they themselves don’t hate black people? That’s the problem

    Democrats may have their issues when it comes to race, and they do at time overuse the claim of racism, put that's the party not the people. But it is in no way even remotely comparable to what republicans do as a matter of policy and intent. They see equality as a form of white oppression.
