New Study Shows Vast Majority of Non-White Americans Reject Political Correctness
They reject it even more than white people
A huge new study by a left-wing organization has slayed a sacred cow of the left by proving that the vast majority of non-white Americans reject political correctness.
The study was undertaken by scholars Stephen Hawkins, Daniel Yudkin, Miriam Juan-Torres, and Tim Dixon on behalf of leftist group More in Common.
As the Atlantic explains, “It is based on a nationally representative poll with 8,000 respondents, 30 one-hour interviews, and six focus groups conducted from December 2017 to September 2018.”
The survey found that a full 80% of Americans across the nation believe “political correctness is a problem in our country,” including 74 percent of young people aged 24 to 29, and 79 percent under age 24.
However, it’s when the responses are broken down by race when the results become even more intriguing.
“Whites are ever so slightly less likely than average to believe that political correctness is a problem in the country: 79 percent of them share this sentiment. Instead, it is Asians (82 percent), Hispanics (87 percent), and American Indians (88 percent) who are most likely to oppose political correctness,” writes Yascha Mounk.
Three quarters of African Americans also oppose political correctness.
In other words, some of the very people who white leftists claim to be representing when they push politically correct narratives reject political correctness even more vehemently than white people.
Among “traditional liberals,” 61 percent see political correctness as a problem, while almost a third (30 percent) of self-proclaimed “progressives” see it as a problem.
When asked to define exactly what it was about “political correctness” that concerned them, a significant number of respondents said they were worried “about their day-to-day ability to express themselves.”
At the end of his article, Yascha Mounk, a leftist lecturer on government at Harvard University, admits that the results indicative progressives are completely out of touch with the mood of the American people.
“The fact that we are so widely off the mark in our perception of how most people feel about political correctness should probably also make us rethink some of our other basic assumptions about the country,” he writes.
“The gap between the progressive perception and the reality of public views on this issue could do damage to the institutions that the woke elite collectively run. A publication whose editors think they represent the views of a majority of Americans when they actually speak to a small minority of the country may eventually see its influence wane and its readership decline. And a political candidate who believes she is speaking for half of the population when she is actually voicing the opinions of one-fifth is likely to lose the next election,” concludes Mounk.
