Faux Researchers Claim Opposition To Gun Control Fueled By “White Resentment”

posted on April 5, 2016

The Washington Post on Monday said “researchers” claim “white resentment is fueling opposition to gun control.”

How did these “researchers” reach this conclusion? By showing whites pictures of African-Americans and Caucasians, asking them if they supported gun control and then measuring their answers (it was unclear if they used mug shots of black criminals or images of black Miss Universe contestants). 

The paper’s abstract (published in a magazine revealingly entitled Political Behavior) reveals the “researchers” to be proponents of “racial resentment” theory, which claims that a new type of racism “dominates the racial thinking of whites generally.” However, even a link in the Post article says “racial resentment is not a valid measure of racism, which raises questions about the extent to which a new racism dominates the thinking of white Americans.” 

However, attempts to taint gun rights with racism do indicate the extent to which racism dominates the thinking of certain “researchers.”
