FACT: Fox News Audience Overwhelmingly Racist

by Lisa Hussein

MinistryofTruth over at the Daily Kos brought this to my attention.  I can’t imagine how it must feel to grow up thinking that you’re better than everyone else simply because of the color or your skin.  Then you reach adulthood and your less than mediocre life doesn’t resemble the American dream in the least.  You realize that there are people of color living better than you and the problem is that you don’t understand how that could be.  You look around for answers and find out that affirmative action, reverse discrimination, and quotas are the reason.  Except the rest of us know that those aren’t the reasons.  First because there isn’t anymore affirmative action, never was reverse discrimination and quotas ended decades ago (though the quotas were always excruciatingly low).  The true reason is that you’re just not that bright. Your ability to think critically is severely lacking. But undeserved privilege is a bitch; if your of average intelligence or above, it can work.  But if your not…well this is what you tend to do and think (these are all in response to the news of Whitney Houston’s death)

How many times can you say nigger

UPDATE: I decided that I will keep adding evidence of the Racism that is rampant.

As suspected, low intelligence in childhood corresponded with racism in adulthood. But the factor that explained the relationship between these two variables was political: When researchers included social conservatism in the analysis, those ideologies accounted for much of the link between brains and bias.

Nonetheless, there is reason to believe that strict right-wing ideology might appeal to those who have trouble grasping the complexity of the world.
