A new study from the University of Pennsylvania finds that racism in the U.S. has significantly declined since President Trump’s election in 2016.
“We find that via most measures, white Americans’ expressed anti-Black and anti-Hispanic prejudice declined after the 2016 campaign and election…”
The focus of the study is in the wrong place. What is needed are studies that demonstrate the degree of influence that the MSM has in manipulating public perception that Trump is racist.

A recent study from the University of Pennsylvania finds that racism in America has significantly decreased since President Donald Trump’s election in 2016, directly contradicting the narrative pushed among many academics and mainstream media personalities.
The Rise of Trump, the Fall of Prejudice? Tracking White Americans’ Racial Attitudes 2008-2018 via a Panel Survey was authored by UPenn political science professor Daniel J. Hopkins and research assistant Samantha Washington.
Hopkins, in an article for FiveThirtyEight, detailed on Tuesday the study, which used 13 waves of panel surveys to gather data and determined that white racial prejudice against African Americans and Hispanic Americans has declined since 2016, when Trump was elected president.
Hopkins noted that the fall in prejudice was present for both Democrats and Republicans.
Hopkins and Washington, according to the study, voice their opinions on Trump and his statements.
“As a political leader, Donald Trump has used racist rhetoric to build political support,” the study states.
“In his campaign and first few years in office, Donald Trump consistently defied contemporary norms by using explicit, negative rhetoric targeting ethnic/racial minorities. Did this rhetoric lead white Americans to express more prejudiced views of African Americans or Hispanics, whether through the normalization of prejudice or other mechanisms?” the study’s co-authors asked at another point in the study.

I may have missed the quotes where President Trump said anything that was really racist. Even before he was elected President. However, to leftists, the word “racist” is an expression of aggression, and nothing more. To them, it’s the worst thing you can call someone. If they could think of something uglier, they’d go with that instead.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
