'Racism' is False Consciousness

This research reveals that racism does not exist.

What this research proves is that members of one national, tribal or cultural group mistrust strangers not because of their race, but because a stranger has an accent which causes them cognitive problems whilst interpreting their language.

Therefore every group regards with suspicion the stranger.

This is not due to their race, it relates to complex cognitive processes hardwired into the brain.

Therefore racism does not exist.

The suspicion all people feel towards the stranger is a simple by product of being human, a cognitive warning mechanism hard wired into the brain by evolution.

Therefore we now know that racism and xenophobia do not exist.

Therefore the ideological baggage of political correctness and its definition of racism are flawed, false and scientifically untenable.

The ideology of Racism is an example of false consciousness, as it is based on ideology not science.

The White Guilt Complex inculcated into the conditioned white masses must be overthrown and its proponents criminalised as the perpetrators of falsehoods and calumnies created for a profit - for the race relations extortionists and terrorists profit well from their lies and treason.

People are suspicious of foreigners because they do not trust their accents, research claims

People are naturally suspicious of foreigners because they find their accents to be less trustworthy, new research has claimed.

Listeners are less willing believe someone with a non-native accent and their prejudice increases the thicker the accent becomes, communication experts said.

Researchers believe people associated truthfulness with the ease of understanding a person and accents make that more difficult.

The implications of the research, by the University of Chicago, could be wide-ranging as millions of people move around the world and communicate daily in a language other than their mother-tongue.

Dr Lesley Prince, a social psychologist from Birmingham, described it as "inevitable" that accent would be among the factors that people use to judge one another when communicating.

He said: "People will be suspicious of what they don't know. If you have difficulty understanding then that creates uncertainty in the mind. Uncertainty leads to lack of trust."

Shiri Lev-Ari, co-author of "Why Don't We Believe Non-native Speakers? The Influence of Accent on Credibility", said: "Accent might reduce the credibility of non-native job seekers, eyewitnesses, reporters or people taking calls in foreign call centers."

As part of the research, published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, American participants were asked to judge the truthfulness of trivia statements by native or non-native speakers of English, such as, "A giraffe can go without water longer than a camel can."

Even though they knew the speakers were reciting from a script, they were less likely to believe what was said by those speaking with a foreign accent.

Boaz Keysar, a Professor of Psychology at the University of Chicago, said: "The accent makes it harder for people to understand what the non-native speaker is saying. They misattribute the difficulty of understanding the speech to the truthfulness of the statements."
