Republicans Are Anti-Black?

Everybody who's shocked by this, raise your hands.

Another study presented at the conference, which was in Palm Springs, Calif., explored relationships between racial bias and political affiliation by analyzing self-reported beliefs, voting patterns and the results of psychological tests that measure implicit attitudes -- subtle stereotypes people hold about various groups.

That study found that supporters of President Bush and other conservatives had stronger self-admitted and implicit biases against blacks than liberals did.

The GOP has based its electoral strategy heavily on this fact for the last four decades. The only remarkable thing here is that someone attempted some scientific research to prove what has been widely known all along.
