Corporate Propaganda Blinds Us To The Suffering Of Others


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Most people understand that average Americans have gotten less than they deserve. Most people don’t understand that average African-Americans have also gotten less than they deserve. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"Many have argued that Donald Trump won the presidency because the political establishment ignored the plight of white working class Americans. Everyone from the far right to far left, including Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, and Joe Biden has suggested that the Clinton campaign didn’t pay enough attention to this group’s legitimate economic grievances.

A few astute analysts, however, have noted that the sympathetic focus on white America’s problems stands in stark contrast with conservatives’ lack of empathy for communities of color. Indeed, when African Americans protest against profound racial inequality—unequal conditions that are directly traceable to discriminatory governmental policies—they are often condemned by the right as “whiners“ who should simply try harder to remedy their own situations.

Such different portraits of white and non-white Americans’ grievances have their origins in what social psychologists call “ultimate attribution error.” This error means that when whites struggle, their troubles are generally attributed to situational forces (e.g., outsourcing); but when non-whites struggle, their plight is more often attributed to dispositional traits (i.e., poor work ethic). Consequently, whites are considered “more deserving” than blacks.

To quantify this double standard in deservingness we embedded an experiment in a new HuffPost/YouGov survey. We asked half of our respondents if they agreed or disagreed with the following statement: “Over the past few years, blacks have gotten less than they deserve.” The other half of the sample was provided with the exact same statement, except we changed “blacks” to “average Americans”—a group that psychology research shows is implicitly synonymous with being white.

The results show a very strong public divide in the perceived deservingness of average Americans and African Americans:”*

    *How To Tell If You May Have Been Brainwashed By The Alt Right*

    Are you aware of none of Trump’s cabinet picks other than Steve Bannon, who
    you rush to the defense of because “the SJWs” called him a white
    supremacist, in your mind, for no reason? Do you drone on for months after
    a terror attack occurs in the UK, France or Germany but either ignore
    attacks that happen in Turkey, Syria, Indonesia or Bangladesh, or
    hypocritically condone the terror attack because it’s “terrorists killing
    terrorists?” Have you made dozens of videos for months on end about a 14
    year-old trans kid who stated that all white people were racist? Do you
    know more about Anita Sarkeesian than Anita Sarkeesian? Do you become a gay
    rights activist only when Muslims throw them off buildings or shoot up a
    nightclub in Orlando? Do you #StandWithMilo #StandWithEvalion and
    #StandWithAiU when their channels get flagged down but remain mysteriously
    silent when AiU sends his minions to flag down other YouTubers? Do you fail
    to find anything racist on the EDL’s website? Do you believe that
    anti-racism is the new racism? If so, you too may find yourself labeled
    “alt right.” Why do people laugh at Deplorables? Only Deplorables don’t
    understand why.

      +Andrew Beckett Funny and sad story. Some years ago, in Texas farm country,
      the ICE had made one of their pro forma, for show, “sweeps” of
      undocumenteds to show that they deserve a paycheck. This was just before
      harvest time for the tomato crop. A lot of workers had shown up for the
      pick, so ICE didn’t have to work very hard. They bagged a few and the rest
      boogied to Oregon to pick berries, I think. A farmer with a lot of tomatoes
      to pick, NOW, had no workers. None. He put an ad in the local rag offering
      stupid money and paying hourly, instead of by the basket. Next day, 3
      people showed up. After lunch break, he had one picker. Next morning, none.
      He lost 300,000 dollars worth of tomatoes. Oh, this was during the depth of
      the last Rebooblicon Recession.

    This is interesting, but another interpretation of this study is that when
    a race is specified, it implies that they are getting less than they
    deserve in a way that is unique. In other words, a person can think that
    blacks, as average Americans, are getting screwed, but no more so than any
    other average American. While statistically that is false and black
    Americans are still more impoverished than even the screwed over white
    Americans or Asians, or Latinos (maybe?), the question is racially charged
    in that, I think, there are a lot of Americans who feel that their poverty
    is irrelevant or unnoticed. Just my two cents.

    • Posted by KAWAII OBAMA, at Reply

      William Moody racists shouldn’t be allowed to take a governmental position,
      they will be ultimately unjust toward other racial groups, which undermines
      the legitimacy of the government. Like the police, judges, etc. … on the
      other hand half of america is racist.

    • Posted by Aes Sedai, at Reply

      Interesting rationale, but I doubt the average American has such a
      sophisticated way of thinking.

    • Posted by Shie H., at Reply

      William Moody I never said they weren’t targeted – I was merely addressing
      other possible interpretations of the findings. Of course there is systemic
      racism and, certainly there is also plenty of unintentional racism. But,
      unintentional, matters. We can’t hold people accountable for their
      subconscious reactions, but we can discuss them in sincere and open ways.
      If it matters, I’m a white Canadian woman living in South Korea. I am
      certain that I try to be open and non-racist and that I fail that at times.
      We are all products of our culture and upbringing, mixed with the human
      tendency towards identity and tribalism. We can and should, however, strive
      for colour blindness.

      Yet I’ve only personally witnessed once where a white person verbally
      attacked a black person. I’ve lived in a black neighborhood and white. I
      watched a black man gun down two people in front of my door. I seen
      countless domestic violence and other violent crimes in the black
      neighborhood. But I’ve never seen that happen in the white neighborhood. I

    I think there are a lot of ways of interpreting these poll results other

      “Since the “average black” income is significantly lower than “average

      I don’t see what impact that has on anything. I don’t know what the numbers
      would be in my scenario, I don’t think the extant data given the questions
      that were actually asked is sufficient to support the conclusions TYT
      presents here.

    • Posted by Niners Rule, at Reply

      Im just saying that if u include “average black” to the “average (white)
      American” response, I do not think the ” blacks are getting getting less
      than they deserve” responce will increase due too the socioeconomic
      differences between “average blacks” and “average (white)
      Americans”…maybe that’s better

    • Posted by coopclauson, at Reply

      And just as a thought experiment, imagine if they had asked people “Do you
      think average white Americans have gotten less than they deserve?” My
      suspicion is that black respondents would mostly not agree with this
      because they would take “deserve” to mean relative to the standards that
      they are normally held to by society. But if the question were something
      more like “Do you think average Americans white, black, and of all races
      have gotten less than they deserve?” the same people might respond
      positively because they would question the standards they were held to.

      I guess my point is that the concept of “deserves” invites someone to
      compare what they are getting with what someone else is getting. I think
      “ordinary” invokes a division of rich/not-so-rich, while the “black people”
      question invokes the division black/not black. I think it’s strange that
      here TYT decids to infer that survey respondents don’t count black people
      as ordinary. It’s possible that some of the survey respondents think that
      while most Americans don’t get what they deserve, black people do because
      they’re entitled, but I don’t think the question wording reveals that.

    • Posted by Addison Clarke, at Reply

      I understand the point you’re trying to make, and appreciate it. My overall
      issue is the redundancy in changing the question to include “white, black
      and all races”, because it’s already implied in “average American”, unless
      you specifically don’t include nonwhites in your interpretation of average.
      And as a Trump voter, if one felt as if they weren’t getting what they
      deserved or that they were getting screwed by the gov’t, then the logical
      answer to a question about whether or not blacks (who are not a majority
      and don’t have much political power), have gotten less than they deserve
      would be yes. To think otherwise, raises some interesting questions about
      how a respondent views who is getting screwed and who isn’t.

      Also, a little light reading on American history from inception until today
      would make the answer to the question “Do you think average white Americans
      have gotten less than they deserve?” (and those where white is replaced
      with Native, Hispanic or Black) pretty obvious to this Canadian.
