A new study conducted by two University of Pennsylvania sociologists has determined America is less, not more, racist under President Donald Trump.
Daniel J. Hopkins and Samantha Washington conducted a study that measured racial attitudes of 2,500 randomly selected Americans since 2008.
In a recent report the researchers admitted they expected to see an increase in racist opinions, saying, "Normalization of prejudice or opinion leadership both lead us to expect that expressed prejudice may have increased in this period, especially among Republicans or Trump supporters."
Instead they found racism has actually declined since Trump moved into the Oval Office.
Americans, claim Hopkins and Washington, have actually become less inclined to express racist opinions since Donald Trump was elected. Anti-black prejudice, they found, declined by a statistically-insignificant degree between 2012 and 2016, when Trump was elected. But then after 2016 it took a sharp dive that was statistically significant. Moreover, contrary to their expectations, the fall was as evident among Republican voters as it was among Democrats. There was also a general fall in anti-Hispanic prejudice, too, although this was more evident among Democrat voters.
Liberals and progressives repeatedly insist the nation is becoming more racist, but the opposite is actually taking place.
While the Left would like you to believe Trump's popularity is motivated by xenophobia, the real reason he took office has more to do with business deregulation, tax reform and national security.
