Just as I’ve been pointing out for over two years, and as many African-Americans are starting to notice, a new study found that much of the research conducted on Trump supporters is distorted to make them appear racist, when they actually score lower on racism than Mitt Romney voters.
The study by a Columbia University sociologist found that these studies showing Trump supporters as motivated by racism were marred by prejudicial designs, distorted data and outright misrepresentation of Trump’s words (you mean like claiming he was calling all immigrants criminals when he condemned MS-13 gang members?) The researcher said he suspected the cartoonish image of racist Trump voters found in these studies and amplified by the media was wrong, because he grew up in a conservative, religious, military community in Arizona and knew those people, and they were nothing like that.
I think we can draw two conclusions from this story: (1.) Don’t believe people who claim that Trump supporters are just a bunch of racist haters, and (2.) This guy will probably never again get hired by any American university sociology department.
