In a shocking new study, it has been discovered that people who are racist are actually idiots. According to research, children with low intelligence are more likely to be prejudiced as adults. Adults with low intelligence have a tendency to espouse socially conservative ideologies. Conservative values can sometimes lead to prejudice; therefore, all conservative adults with a low IQ are racist.
No, the study did not make a conclusive statement like that, but let’s just put it out there, okay.
Researchers studied children who were born in 1958 and 1970. The children’s intelligence was assessed at age 1o or 11, and then their intelligence was assessed once more when they were 30 or 33. In addition, their level of social conservatism and racism were also measured. To measure social conservatism the subjects were asked how they felt about certain statements such as “Family life suffers if the mother works full time” or “Schools should teach children to obey authority.” To measure their level of racism, they were asked many questions such as how they felt about working with people of other races.
The study found that children with a less than average IQ had a tendency towards racism. These people also had a tendency to not have contact with people outside their race. Socialising outside one’s racial group can be mentally challenging and too difficult for someone with a low IQ. The less intelligent tend to favour structure and order, something that is highly valued in conservative thought. Sometimes the complexity of the world is just too difficult to comprehend for someone with a lower IQ.
There have been several programs aimed at reducing prejudice and racism, but the subjects may fail to grasp the concept if they are idiots. Being able to see another person’s viewpoint requires certain cognitive abilities that persons with a low IQ do not have. Think about this the next time you are arguing with somebody. You just can’t seem to get through to them; they just don’t seem to understand that ideals like homophobia, racism and misogyny are wrong. You can stop wasting your breath. There is now scientific evidence that they are retarded and are incapable of realising the error of their ways.
So now that we have proof that racists are idiots, what do we do about it? That’s my question. You can’t make someone get smarter, and these attempts to expand their worldview are now proven to be a waste of time. Do we just leave these people alone and chalk them up as a lost cause? Now what? My next question is what about people who do have the intellectual capacity to understand complex concepts, but yet, are still racist? What about these people?
I vote to have them shot.
For the record, the studies do not conclude that if you are liberal you are a genius, or if you’re conservative you’re automatically an idiot.
