Seriously???

Almost as interesting as the study is the fact that the journal article is titled “Whites See Racism as a Zero-Sum Game That They Are Now Losing” while Tufts University’s own press release headline and the concept that most media outlets have run with is, “Whites Believe They Are Victims of Racism More Often Than Blacks” a subtle difference but an instance where, in the subtlety lies the difference between greatly ignorant and fucked up and “hmm, that’s an interesting and skewed toward fucked up view of racism.” But guess which one gets you more eyeballs?
