Ivy League Study Confirms Dems Dumb Down Speech for Minorities, GOP Does Not

A new study from Yale University is bad news for Democrats.

It confirms that liberals dumb down their speech for black Americans, while Republicans do not.

Who’da thunk?

After all, white liberals like Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, and others are often exposed for saying and/or doing very racist things.

Racial bias can put people of color at a disadvantage when interviewing for a job, buying a house, or interacting with the police. New research suggests that bias may also shape daily interactions between racial minorities and white people, even those whites who tend to be less biased.

According to new research by Cydney Dupree, assistant professor of organizational behavior at Yale SOM, white liberals tend to downplay their own verbal competence in exchanges with racial minorities, compared to how other white Americans act in such exchanges. The study is scheduled for publication in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

The team found that Democratic candidates used fewer competence-related words in speeches delivered to mostly minority audiences than they did in speeches delivered to mostly white audiences. The difference wasn’t statistically significant in speeches by Republican candidates, though “it was harder to find speeches from Republicans delivered to minority audiences,” Dupree notes. There was no difference in Democrats’ or Republicans’ usage of words related to warmth. “It was really surprising to see that for nearly three decades, Democratic presidential candidates have been engaging in this predicted behavior.”

The researchers found that liberal individuals were less likely to use words that would make them appear highly competent when the person they were addressing was presumed to be black rather than white. No significant differences were seen in the word selection of conservatives based on the presumed race of their partner. “It was kind of an unpleasant surprise to see this subtle but persistent effect,” Dupree says. “Even if it’s ultimately well-intentioned, it could be seen as patronizing.”

Dupree and Fiske suspect that the behavior stems from a liberal person’s desire to connect with other races. One possible reason for the “competence downshift,” as the authors describe it, is that, regardless of race, people tend to downplay their competence when they want to appear likeable and friendly. But it’s also possible that “this is happening because people are using common stereotypes in an effort to get along,” Dupree says.

Top aides say Hillary may once again run for the White House in 2020, despite not being able to walk down a short set of stairs by herself.

Just imagine, for a second, if a Republican said this.

There would be hysteria; pandemonium; outrage!

Presumptive Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi doesn’t speak so goodly.

Maybe English isn’t her first language?

Pelosi: “And they’re here now, in what is one of the most tranformative, new members of— body of members of Congress.

Pelosi: “We will— we will win 40, uh, we will win 4— we will have, take, win 40 seats.

Pelosi: “The Special Counsel cannot be fired without cause. He, he or she would be granted a three-judge appeal panel if fired, uh, could only be removed by a Senate-confirmed AG— replaced by a Se— uh, Senate-confirmed Attorney General.”

Check out her speech…

WATCH:

Pelosi must’ve misspoken last week.

How else does someone explain why she thanked race-baiting Al Sharpton for “saving America?”

WATCH:

“Thank you, thank you for helping take back America.”

“Uh, people are call— all over the place are calling me, writing, airports here and there— thank you for saving America.”

“I give those thanks to you.”

“Thank you for saving America. Reverend Sharpton, thank you for saving America!”

This is like saying Hillary Clinton made America great again.

Facepalm.
