    Low IQ & Conservative Beliefs Linked to Prejudice

    "There's no gentle way to put it: People who give in to racism and prejudice may simply be dumb, according to a new study that is bound to stir public controversy.

    The research finds that children with low intelligence are more likely to hold prejudiced attitudes as adults. These findings point to a vicious cycle, according to lead researcher Gordon Hodson, a psychologist at Brock University in Ontario. 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 email to LiveScience..."

    Joe Biden made racist impersonations of Indian call center workers while campaigning in New Hampshire. And he can't even do it right because he's as dumb as a box of rocks.

    So much for your theory.

    But, then, you have zero credibility.

    Ah Rick, where is GB. The study was done at Brock University in Ontario. That's in Canada no?[smile] I think your point still stands, regardless of the geography.

    Based on Mr white gun clubs posts, (currently 13 in politics sections) and all pandering to the same left leaning, horizontal logic topics, it would suggest that his IQ is very near the outside temperature.

    It just dawned on me that I am prejudiced, bigoted, etc. Mine happens to be against raggies, liberals, socialism etc! Yeah, I know, liberalism is just a nice way to say you are socialistic but I thought I would cover the bases for keetie! By the way, keetie, I would be happy to match wits/IQs with you!

    So, then a "Moonbat Lib Socialist" is triple redundant. It still has a nice ring to it.

    I was going to comment, but remembered Tron's admonition against feeding trolls.
    Particularly trolls who quote sociologists.
