    White liberals 'patronize' minorities: study

    Liberals present themselves as warmer, less competent to minority audiences

    ...
    White liberals present themselves as less competent when addressing minorities, while conservatives use the same vocabulary no matter what the race of their audience, according to a newly released study.

    Yale and Princeton researchers found that both white Democratic presidential candidates and self-identified liberals played down their competence when speaking to minorities, using fewer words that conveyed accomplishment and more words that expressed warmth.

    On the other hand, there were no significant differences in how white conservatives, including Republican presidential candidates, spoke to white versus minority audiences.

    “White liberals self-present less competence to minorities than to other Whites—that is, they patronize minorities stereotyped as lower status and less competent,” according to the study’s abstract.

    The post you quoted was about BMWs and not bikes so I thought you were talking about cars. I ride a YZF R3.
    Nope, I was writing about BMW motorcycles. 6-cylinder in-line engine, I can see how you would get confused.

    Cars? Thought so, you're a four wheel guy talking about two wheels.

    Valid from history past. Let's try the history of the 21st century and she fall flat on her face.

    BACK on TOPIC

    https://www.infoplease.com/history-a...114th-congress

    The woman was speaking of past history. Not today. Which Party had the fist Black President? What were the results of this past election? How many blacks or women elected to the Congress? Now many Native Americans. TALK of TODAY when the South is governed by straight GOP. The South made up of the poorest, most on welfare and high unemployment. Per ca-pita iirc the most on opioids They also rank amoung the dumest states, Trump supporters of course.

    Top speed doesn't really mean anything, BMW's are good for cruising too. They haven't made a hardcore sports car since the e46, maybe e92 platform as well. Everything they put out now is plush and numb, mainly for the old guys that shop by badge.
    What do you ride?

    Is that why they are buying BMWs that do 170 MPH?

    Price doesn't matter, Harley's are for old people that just want to cruise, the younger generation is going to find more excitement in bikes that are fast and sporty.
