I hate that this is a Canadian study because it only gives the Conservatives in the US MORE reason to hate us. First we are trying to build a leaky oil pipeline across their pristine land and now we are accusing their ignorant of being racist. What the hell is wrong with us these days? I blame the long cold winters and all the education we receive in our socialist Muslim paradise. Of course I only posted this article at the behest of my Progressive masters.
"Not only are children with low IQs more likely to be prejudiced adults, Hodson uncovered a hidden bias that exposes the relationship between prejudice and conservatives:
The research finds that children with low intelligence are more likely to hold prejudiced attitudes as adults. These findings point to a vicious cycle. Low-intelligence adults tend to gravitate toward socially conservative ideologies, the study found. Those ideologies, in turn, stress hierarchy and resistance to change, attitudes that can contribute to prejudice, Hodson wrote in an e-mail to LiveScience.
Prejudice is extremely complex and multifaceted, making it critical that any factors contributing to bias are uncovered and understood."
