Preferring one's own ethnic group among whites

As a follow-up to the last post on race and preferring the company of one's own, I wanted to take a look at variation among white groups. Listed below are the percent who answered that they did not prefer their own group "at all" by ethnicity (N = 4,478):

Percent
English 32.8*
French 53.4
German 50.3
Irish 38.5
Italian 28.5*
Polish 37.7*
Scottish 41.3
Swedish 45.9
Russian 37.5
Norwegian 42.7
Jewish 20.2*

*significantly different from German Americans at the 95% confidence level

I chose German Americans as the reference group since they are large and score second highest (after French Americans) on this measure of neutrality. Surprisingly, Irish Americans are a bit more neutral than those of English descent. Jewish Americans, by contrast, score in the non-white range (from the previous post, Native Americans are 20 percent).

    Im sure the elite are pleased to see how tremendously effective their brainwashing-to-self-hate has been amongst whites and what they can make them profess to publically.

    Privately many of the same whites awnswering that survey no-doubt strive to be able to afford to live in the whitest areas possible.

    The Irish always have been acknowledged as *nicking* with everyone else, as Greg Cochran puts it. The stereotype is that they're sentimental about their culture and have a strong ethnic identification (though I'm sure it'd amaze some folks that not mixing and having a strong cultural identity don't necessarily oppose one another).

    Prediction: if Jersey Shore stays on the air for several more seasons Italians will become as self-hating as other non-Jewish whites.

    The data says the stereotype is wrong though.
