Yale Prof Suggests Democrats’ Focus on Race is Hurting Them Politically

Yale Prof Suggests Democrats’ Focus on Race is Hurting Them Politically

“linking public policies to race is detrimental for support of those policies.”

This is already apparent to millions of Americans who are actively rejecting the Democrat focus on race.

Yale Prof: Democrats’ focus on race hurts them in the polls

Yale University researchers discovered that by framing their agenda through a racial lens, Democrats hurt their policies’ popularity among voters.

In a recent paper, Yale Assistant Professor Joshua Kalla and PhD student Micah English find that “despite leftward shifts in public attitudes towards issues of racial equality, racial framing decreases support for race-neutral progressive policies.”

The professors state that although most white Americans “agree with the general principles of racial equality,” a large body of research finds that “white Americans remain reluctant to endorse policies that are designed to actually achieve racial equality.” The results ultimately show that despite the increased messaging for racial justice by Democratic leadership, the researchers “find no evidence that Americans are persuaded” by “race” and “class plus race” frames.

The paper finds that “linking public policies to race is detrimental for support of those policies.” Meanwhile, the results “showed that Black Americans were just as swayed by the class frame as they were the race frame.”

“racial framing decreases support for race-neutral progressive policies.” – False. Not least, because “progressive policies” are entirely race-based.

“a large body of research finds that “white Americans remain reluctant to endorse policies that are designed to actually achieve racial equality.”

Nope. Policies sold as attempts to achieve racial equality are rarely likely to achieve any such thing.

As always, Leftists start from the assumption that they are right and that any opposition must be immoral. Then they call it science.

On a related note, how would I insert a raspberry emoji here?

    Yup. more like: “White Americans remain reluctant to endorse policies that will further divide America, justified with the excuse of achieving racial equity.”

    Just using “equality” in that sentence exposes it for the sham it is. Equality is racist, haven’t you heard?

    They’ve redefined “racial equality” as equal outcomes.

    It used to mean equal opportunity.

    After 57 years of affirmative action, we need to go back to the plain meaning of “equal protection of the laws”.

      If we went back to equal protection under the law, most of the CBC would be shining shoes and pushing brooms. Yet, Thomas Sowell, Clarence Thomas, and and Walter Williams would still be who they are, accomplishing the very same things.

    “A large body of research”. By whom. Any research that shows that blacks are by and large treated equally will never see the light of day due to these leftists. They claim whites don’t support equality. That is bullshit. 90% of whites support equality, just not “equity”, by which the left means reparations. No black alive today deserves to be paid for actions committed by generations dead and gone against generations dead and gone. The agitprop spread by the blm supporters is the main source of racist behavior in the nation today. The CRT teaching that the left desperately seek to insert into the curriculum of schools will be the first exposure to the belief that whites are racist that many white and black children will receive. If left alone, racism as the black agitator of today sees it will die off. But that is not their goal. They seek to perpetuate this myth, because “racism” as the blm supporter sees it has become monetized, and is their only source of income. The blm hustler seeks to be the modern day Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson, always present where a dollar is to be hustled in the name of “racism”.

I read it as “the public is catching on to the constant lying so we need to back off a bit.”

There is no progress in “progress”ivism.
