A Pew Study on the ideological composition of the American electorate has been released that is fascinating on countless levels. It includes a detailed analysis of American attitudes on race and immigration.
Here’s something we didn’t know: SWPLs are very divided on Black Run America, with 61 percent of “Solid Liberals” attributing black failure in our society to “racial discrimination” while 79 percent of “Post-Moderns” believe that blacks are responsible for their own predicament.
91 percent of “Post-Moderns” believe that “homosexuality should be accepted by society” and “the country should do whatever it takes to protect the environment.” Yet 69 percent of them believe that America “has made the changes necessary to give blacks equal rights.”
Who knew that Black Run America was such a polarizing issue among environmentalists and gay marriage supporters? In fact, SWPL-PMs are a full 20 points less likely than the general public to believe that more needs to be done to uplift blacks.
Oddly enough, SWPLs are split down the middle on black people, but reunify on homosexuals and immigrants. “Solid Liberals” are the only people in America who believe that “racism” is responsible for the plight of blacks.
Libertarians are even more opposed to Black Run America than “Post-Moderns.” “Staunch Conservatives” are the most opposed group of all with “Main Street Republicans” and “Disaffecteds” coming in behind the “Post-Moderns.”
White people are able to grasp blacks much more readily than other issues like homosexuality and immigration. Jews are not even mentioned in this study.
The Pew Study shows that environmentalism aligns “Post-Moderns” with “Solid Liberals” against “Staunch Conservatives” and “Libertarians.” Homosexuality aligns “Post-Moderns” with “Libertarians” against “Staunch Conservatives.”
Black Run America unites Whites against “Solid Liberals” unless polarizing dealbreakers like homosexuality and economics are brought into the equation. This data suggests a course correction might be prudent here.
We can expand our audience by narrowing and deepening our focus.
