Eric Kaufman, Eric, America discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show


A coffee being born and raised in the tropics. But let me tell you, I'm loving the cold, mostly because I get to experience it and she eats frozen mochas any size, any flavor for only 3 99 or less choose from their most popular like the peanut butter frozen mocha made with braces. Rosen code, a mocha or their peanut butter. Banana frozen mocha made with Reese is so enjoy the frozen fun with me. Order on your sheets up and pick it up curbside at select locations, sheets run and done. Disease you sister streaming now, to be honest happened 8 60 AM theater So with Eric Kaufman and you know there was some variation because they were asked at slightly different time periods. But in both cases of a majority of slight majority of African Americans said political correctness was demeaning. Rather than necessary to protect blacks and white liberals were more likely than black liberals to say political correctness was miss unnecessary. Protect one so anyway, White liberals have this more protective attitude. Where's black liberals have more of an emphasis on no political correctness is demeaning. More of an emphasis on I think with zillions rather than the need for protection, which I think is quite interesting. So, so it suggests that political correctness doesn't have the level of support within the black population that one might survive. I'm curious as I look at this chart of Tani See, Coach says he responded to this or even acknowledged it that he's making black people less optimistic. No, no, I mean, you know, I'm not trade with Dane to to respond. I mean, there are some people who are trying to claim that all well, this event will you know you can produce it with with a short paragraph, but it quickly fades away. It's not gonna last You know other kinds of method. Illogical critics. What your fair fair enough. You could make such a good cheeks. I just don't think that given the amount of messaging of that type that is around that this is really convincing counter. Calderon knows especially the disparity. It's it's rather It's rather telling. So you also have one here personal experience of racism and discrimination by level of sadness and anxiety. Walk us through that one. Yeah, so again, In addition to your partisanship and ideology and how much exposure you have to social media, you also are more likely to report experiencing discrimination and racism. If you're generally sad, or anxious s so, for example, if we people who say they are sad or anxious At least half the time are twice as likely as people who say they're never sad or anxious to say they've experienced, you know, discrimination and racism on that holds by the way for white and black. You know, people said so. Whites who who are Satur, anxious half the time arm or are twice as likely to say they experienced discrimination and racism is whites who never experience who who say they're never Satur anxious. The point here being that your underlying psychological state again is gonna predispose you. To answer Yes, I experienced that as discrimination and racism. It makes you more sensitive to these issues. And so a lot of this comes down to again. Perception and framing are at the heart of this problem. It's not a matter of lived experience alone. I mean, lived experience matters. I don't want to devalue that for real racist incidents. But a lot of this is governed by social construction caused by psychology, ideology, exposure to media and so forth, and that's just not being recognized. It's seen as something that's just real that bubbles up out of people's Experience for us. I think we need to be more skeptical and say yes, yes, it could be, but there's also a lot going on in terms of perception to frame these issues. I think that's very wise. So to summarize it all together, we'll post this study on Charlie Kirk dot com. Also the Manhattan Institute There's There's a direct, I gotta say, direct correlation, But there's an argument to be made that that that one of the major contributing factors to people's view on race and racism in America. Media, social media and even political views and that I guess I have one last question is back in the 19 sixties where people do you have this data where people's racial attitudes of view of race as As different where they're disparities based on political viewpoints in the black community. Um, I don't have that data with me The differences within the black community. First of all are smaller, based on ideology than within the white community. Yes, those differences within the whites Have increased over time with partisanship in part polarization, So I would say those differences would have been pretty small amongst African Americans in the sixties compared to now. But but just Yeah, just overall. I mean, I think what this gets to is, you know, we arrest racist incidents and even police shootings. They're never going to be zero. Just like crime is never gonna be zero and poverty is never going to be zero. And the question is, Are we going to have a moral panic and they need emotional response, Not a rational Contest realized proportional response but emotional response in a moral panic. Whenever one of these incidents is circulated on social media as because social media allows you to circulate powerful images, we've got to become more scientific or skeptical about contest realizing just how important And how representative these stories and images are and not to overreact, because that is very negative consequences for the very people that we are trying to help. I think that's that's very well said Well, Eric. Thank you so much for joining our program. Anything in particular you want to plug a book and your website?
