New study finds that Republican's hatred of President Obama might be driven by skin color. I assume this study was conducted by famed researcher "Captain Obvious."

Courtesy of Raw Story: 

According to the Washington Post, sociologist Robb Willer and his colleagues conducted a series of experiments from 2011 to 2015 in which they demonstrated that some white voters may be driven by unconscious racial biases against people with darker skin. 

The study came about when Willard found himself pondering why racist hysteria has ratcheted up in this country since the election of President Obama in 2008. The ranks of white supremacist groups swelled after Obama entered the White House and watchdog groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center report that hate groups have become more active in recent years. 

In Republican politics, right-wing extremist Tea Party candidates ran longstanding GOP officials out of office as conservatives in this country doubled down in opposing the president and his policies. 

“That left a lot of analysts slack-jawed, wondering: What was this latent force that drove the emergence of this movement?” Willer told the Post.

Willard then presented white participants with the photo on the right up above featuring President Obama with darkened skin: 

Among 255 white subjects, people shown the darkened picture of Obama were almost twice as likely to say that they support the Tea Party when questioned by researchers. 

“The result suggests that some white Americans are more likely to oppose Obama solely because of the shade of his skin,” wrote the Post’s Max Ehrenfreund. “For them, the reality that someone with a dark complexion occupies the nation’s highest office could be a source of unease.”

At this point in time the only people who are still denying that racism is driving conservative hatred of the President, are the conservatives who hate the President due to racism.

And of course this is exactly the demographic that Donald Trump tapped into back when he was the Birther-in-Chief, and is now using to fuel his presidential campaign.

Of course without President Obama as his political foe in the general one might wonder if this strategy will continue to work as we approach November.

But I doubt that Trump has to worry about losing them. I think there is ample evdience that they are also women hating sexist pigs.

    "At this point in time the only people who are still denying that racism is driving conservative hatred of the President, are the conservatives who hate the President due to racism."

    An asinine comment, but pretty typical of the liberal racist platform to continually use skin color as a dividing issue.

      Hi, Alicia!

    2. It wasn't liberals circulating the emails with watermelons on the white house lawn, the first family as gorillas, the President as a witch doctor, and on and on and on.

      It wasn't liberals who refused to believe that the President was born in Hawaii and that he must have been born in Kenya even though there was no good reason to believe such a thing.

      It isn't liberals who call him by unspeakable racial epithets.

      It is NOT divisive to call out racism.

      It IS racist and divisive to use skin color as a reason to judge someone's worth which is exactly what racist conservatives and republicans have been doing to this President for the past eight years.

      So takke your asinine and racist and divisive comment and shove it.

      Here are some comments from a story on AOL regarding President Obama's idea of making election day a national holiday. I just opened the first story about the President I saw but any story about the President has the same kind of nastiness. I didn't even have to go to Brietbart or Redstate to find ugly, disgusting comments.

      "How about the day this nigga leaves office being a holiday? And I can say nigga for two reasons. Obama said he had no problems with it and I woke up today feeling black."

      "F*** the muslim SOB that has damaged this country already to near impossible positions..... He's given to our enemies and strengthened while waging war on our military and police..... "

      "Obama's entire career is a culmination of attempts to advance the muslim way of life which as we all know is the way of the devil. If Obama were to die today he would go directly to hell for aiding and abetting the Islamic terrorists in there endeavor to kill all Christians and Jews."

      "We have huge problems with our military.
      THIS is what "our nigga"is fooling with now?????? MY GOD . . . dis nigga gotta go!"

      "uuuuuuuh HOW THE HELL CAN obama GIVE ANYTHING you moron ?
      think we've forgotten that black assshole woman telling everyone how obama's gonna pay muh bills ? on and on ?"

      "Obama you stupid fool go back to Kenya. and take your ignorant sheep with you."


      "Obuma is only interested in the black vote. So what makes it so difficult for them to vote? It's not like they work for a living, what else do they have to do on a Tuesday?"

      And the winner..

      "Yes, I am a racist and a bigot. Proud of it. Separates me from the ignorant and"

      But noooooo, there's no racist hatred of the President.

      What about conducting a study and statistically analyzing the results do you not understand 2:03? Or are you just a dumbed down Republican who doesn't understand research and other sciencey things?

      Except he didn't say "This guy should be getting us coffee."

      He said "In the olden days, this guy

      See the difference? No? Well, conservatives never were that bright.

      Science, math, reading comprehension- geez no wonder the R party is in such a state. It's what happens when you dumb down education. Glad I'm in a blue state where that "liberal" critical thinking is encouraged along with high education standards.

  3. Anonymous2:50 PM

    And, it was even made worse when the racists in the Republican party realized how smart the 'black man' (who is also half white) was sitting in the White House!

    And the fact he accomplished some pretty impressive things as POTUS, in spite of their racism, hatred and obstruction, drove them even more fuckin' nuts!

    Thank you, President Obama and VP Biden for doing one Hell of a job during your near completed two terms.

    The majority of voters in American will be coming out in droves to make sure that the white guy (who is a proven racist and head of the birther movement against President Obama) will lose the next election to the White House!

    Funny, Ben Carson is darker skinned than Obama and he was well received by conservatives... gosh durn it Gryph, how do you explain that?

      And another liberal racist, if a black mans politics aren't what the democrats assigned him, then you single them out for ridicule label him an "uncle Tom". One of the oldest racist tricks in the book. You people are sick.

    3. Anonymous3:46 PM

      He's as big a liar as they are perhaps? They truly hate Obama because he is more intelligent than they, a diplomat instead of a bully, and he's black, Do you not recall the numerous cartoons of watermelon on the WH lawn, Michelle as a moose, and oh, yeah, the one with Obama in a diaper with a bone inside his nose. Surely those have nothing at all to do with his being half white and not lily white like the Bushes.

    4. Anonymous4:23 PM

      Because ol' Ben is a liar and a creep (painting with Jesus?) and fits right in with forced birthers, 1%ers and other Rs. But notice, he didn't get very far in the primaries now, did he? Because he's also blah.

    5. Anonymous4:45 PM

      Funny? Yeah, Ben Carson is insanely funny. He's out of his gourd but they love him because he very rudely insulted President Obama at his first prayer breakfast. The white people there could not do that, so he did it for them. I think we all understand how that came about.

    6. Anonymous3:59 AM

      @ 3:25 I think you need to use his full name there Uncle TomBen.

    7. Anonymous8:35 AM

      SO basically 4:45, you don:t like that another black man fron a different party, insulted black Obama... because by design in your mind he was untouchable because he is black? Until a black man from another party came along and insulted Obama, and left you without defence to label him racist lol? Dems are sick in the head. It is all about skin color with you fuckers.

  5. Anonymous3:16 PM

    Come to think of it, Herman Cain is also darker skinned than Obama, and he was also well received by conservatives, well gosh Gryph, seems like your little theory just doesn't fly. Again, always the democrats pushing race.

    1. Carson was the token to prove that they were not racists, he never had a real chance.

      In fact Carly Fiorina played the same role to diffuse the sexism charge as well.

    2. Anonymous3:39 PM

      And there you have it!

      Thanks for exposing your liberal racism Gryph!

      Any black man who doesn't fall into line for the democrats is a labelled 'token'! Love liberal hypocrisy!

      If Herman Cain was well received why wasn't he the GOP nomination?

    7. Anonymous7:07 PM

      What is your point 6:29? He was welcomed on stage and quite popular for a while until the infidelity issues arose? In order to prove that he was well received, he has to win the nomination? That isn't just silly of you, it is stupid.

      If you think the color of your skin does not matter to the right wing Rebublican's your wrong. Example. Could they have gotten away with a white President being labeled a Muslim? It's the Republicans that have played the race card by trying to portray Michelle Obama and the President as "Angry Black people" It is so much easier to label a black person as a Muslim because in their small world Muslim is a bad person. Go to Arlington cemetery and look at the markers.My husband was saved in Vietnam by a Muslim medic. Yes they existed even then that man would not carry a gun but everyone knew "Doc" could save your butt so "Doc" was looked after and when you needed help he was there. Are you Muslim? are you black? Ain't no big thing" we are all in it together.

      Wrong 3:39 - Colin Powell. Black, served under the whackaloon GWB? So why not as a presidential candidate? He was sane, too dark to be a token, and might actually win - hell, he won NH as a write in.

    10. Anonymous8:28 AM

      What the hell are you talking about 4:07? Colin Powell and Condi Rice are other good exapmles that kind of shatter the democrat illusion of racism in the republican party.... but as far as presidency goes, they certainly both could run, they would do well I would expect, but neither has ever put their hat in the ring.

      What is your point? What do you mean by: wrong?

    Hopefully, racists are in their last throes, i.e. their last stages, just before their agenda ends badly.

    And, they (Republicans) hate the fact that President Obama's approval rating is over 50%! Love it, love it! He's going down as one of the BEST POTUS our country has ever had!

    Then, they will really come out trying to wipe from history the successes of the man as well as his being the first black POTUS!

    1. Anonymous4:50 PM

      When the time comes to claim the credit the Right-wing will refer to Barack Obama as half white.

    I would prefer a President that is not the color of a jack o'lantern. You know, a pumpkin with a lobotomy.

  9. Anita Winecooler5:21 PM

    Someone paid to have a study to find out the obvious? Good job if you can get it. The thing is, he's everyone's President and represents all Americans. He's spent hours getting a lot of work done, despite everything that was thrown at him.
    Can anyone imagine Trump half as "presidential" or even presentable on the world stage?

    It's not just conservatives, I have seen racist remarks on this very blog from so-called liberals, I am not even surprised

    1. Anonymous6:42 PM

      I don't recall any, except your continued blathering. If there any racist comments, it's people quoting what they've seen elsewhere.

      Is that what stuck in your craw? That Gryph lets alternate opinion through? If we posted ours on sites such as c4p, the newly anointed MaMcGriz would ban us in a heartbeat.

    I find it curious how definitive statements about how outrageous and conservative the so-called "main stream" media is in this country always brings the trolls out of the woodwork. Hmmm.
