What many of us have long noticed anecdotally is now shown empirically. “Yale University recently announced the results of a study concluding that white liberals use fewer “competence-related words” when interacting with minorities,” Celine Ryan reports in The Daily Caller. “The study conducted by Yale School of Management assistant professor of organizational behavior Cydney Dupree concludes that white liberals are more likely than other white Americans to ‘downplay’ their own intelligence when engaging with racial minorities.”

“Dupree says that while there is plenty of research pertaining to the behavior of racially biased individuals in diverse settings, ‘There’s less work that explores how well-intentioned whites try to get along with racial minorities.'”
