Gun Ownership And Racist Attitudes Are Linked, Study Finds

“Buried in the text of the study is an admission that there is, in fact, no correlation between "implicit racism" and what the study calls "gun outcomes".

*** "Contrary to research showing associations between implicit racism and policy decision making [23], we did not find implicit racism to be significantly related to gun related outcomes after accounting for other variables. Similarly, the small correlations between the stereotype that most blacks being violent and gun outcomes were not significant after accounting for all other variables." ***

The only way the study's authors were able to produce a correlation between "racism" and "gun outcomes" was to make up an entirely new concept, namely, what they call "symbolic racism". In other words, after they failed to find evidence of actual racism, they presumed their test subjects to be guilty of "symbolic racism" for giving politically incorrect responses to such statements as "“Generations of slavery and discrimination have created conditions that make it difficult for blacks to work their way out of the lower class."”

“The trouble is, these are very curvy women whose curves are in all the right places. Most women who struggle with their weight struggles with their curves being in all the wrong places.

So this plus-sized model craze is NOT a victory for "ordinary" women.

And, I think many of these so-called plus-sized models are simply regular models who deliberately plump up, perhaps because they can't get A-list modeling jobs when they're skinny.

It's a charade.”

“Are most HUMANS at least decent? Look at the world today. I dunno.”

Robert Eckert on Sep 19, 2013 at 00:31:38

“Yes, most humans are.  You hear about bad news, but consider how many people you pass every day who make no attempt to rob or assault you.  Be realistic.
And many of those ordinary, decent people are nominally Christian, although they don't let their religious beliefs play much of a role in their lives.  When people speak of "Christians" generally we mean the people who make a big deal of proclaiming themselves "Christian".  By and large such people are considerably more likely to do evil than ordinary people are.”

“The "Central Park Five" were no choir boys, even if they weren't guilty in the Central Park jogger case.

Is Matia Reyes, who was ultimately convicted in the Central Park jogger case, a White Hispanic?

The NYT, by the way, is an organ of the Left.”

Caris1 on Oct 8, 2013 at 11:29:11

“They weren't charged and villified in the news for being 'no choir boys'. They were charged with brutal assault and rape. No semen from any of the boys was ever found on the victim. No semen, hair or otherwise. Yet, she identified them. Why is that? Did she see them earlier? Had they taunted her perhaps? Matia Reyes is a White Hispanic? What like are Irish White Ethnics? Okay, yeah. Same things.”

Caris1 on Sep 4, 2013 at 14:45:18

“No choir boys, so they should be imprisoned for a crime they did not commit? A call for the death penalty? White Hispanic? I've no idea and it wouldn't matter to any decent-minded individual. Criminal is criminal, red, yellow, black, white, brown. NYTimes is a lot of things, but it stop being liberal when Koch was King of New York.”
