In the last post, reader sillygirl asked about blacks who believe that their group is poorer due to: 1) not trying hard enough, or 2) being born with less ability to learn. According to sociologists, when whites gives these reasons, they are revealing their anti-black hostility. Presumably few blacks would give these same reasons: how many people would hate their own race?
I calculated percentages from the most recent year of General Social Survey data--2008.
Percent giving "not trying hard enough" as an answer (N = 1,152)
Percent giving "less inborn ability to learn" as an answer (N = 1,182)
Blacks are almost as likely as whites to give the first answer and more likely to give the second! There's a whole lot of self-hatred going on.
