Psychologist: Most Whites Are Disgusted by Interracial Couples

141029124502_1_540x360Revulsion at the very sight of racial mixing exists on a subconscious, instinctual level.

NEXT YEAR marks the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision which ruled that state bans on interracial marriage were “unconstitutional.” While the ruling in Loving v. Virginia (1967) was controversial at the time — in 1958 just 4 per cent. of Americans approved of marriages between Whites and non-Whites — today polls indicate that most Americans (87 per cent.) accept interracial marriage.

Yet is that acceptance real — or pretended? Are people being socially pressured to go against what they really feel?

Social psychologist Allison Skinner states in a recent article that, despite the polls, there is an underlying bias against interracial couples — something not captured by self-reported polls. She states: “To test this, my colleague Caitlin Hudac and I designed a series of studies to examine how people really feel about interracial relationships.”

Report from Allison Skinner

Through the early 20th century, many Americans reacted to the idea of interracial marriage with revulsion. For example, Abigail Adams reportedly said that ‘disgust and horror’ filled her mind when she saw dark-skinned Othello touch pale-skinned Desdemona in the theatrical production of Othello.

Yet even though attitudes have supposedly changed, contemporary commentary on interracial marriage will still refer to a ‘gag reflex’ that some people continue to feel — as the Washington Post’s Richard Cohen noted a few years ago.

This feeling — disgust — is the one we decided to zero in on.

First we asked a predominately white sample of college students to report how disgusted they feel by interracial relationships between blacks and whites. We also had the participants tell us how accepting they were of interracial relationships between blacks and whites.

Consistent with polling data, we found that participants claimed to be largely accepting of interracial relationships. We also found that disgust and acceptance were highly correlated; the less accepting people were of interracial relationships, the more disgusted they were by them.

The problem with asking people to report on their own attitudes about sensitive topics like race and gender, however, is that people are often either unaware of their own biases or unwilling to report them. For example, although most white Americans self-report little to no racial bias against black people, they’ve been shown to possess robust implicit, or nonconscious, biases.

To get around this problem, we conducted a second study in which we measured participants’ brain activity — not their own reports. Using an electroencephalogram (EEG), which measures electrical activity in the brain, we recorded the brain waves of a predominately white sample of college students while they viewed 100 images of black-white interracial couples and an equal number of same-race couples (black and white).

We wanted to see what would happen in an area of the brain known as the insula, which has been shown to become activated when people feel disgust. In other words, would the insula of participants light up when viewing interracial couples?

We found exactly that: Overall, participants showed a heightened level of activation in the insula when looking at interracial couples relative to looking at same-race couples.

Although the insula is not exclusively linked to disgust, taken with the results of our first study these findings suggest that people do tend to be more likely to experience disgust when viewing interracial couples.

I’d agree with the basic theme of this article. I used to watch the Walking Dead TV show – but, when the jews decided to inject race mixing between the White Rick Grimes character and the sword swinging, incredibly ugly looking, coal black African chick – I stopped watching the show and have no plans to ever watch it again. TV today, as well as the movies out of Hollywood – have gone full court press on pushing race mixing between Whites and blacks, or any other non-white who happens to be in the movie or TV show. As a result, I quit watching TV entirely and haven’t been to a movie theater in over a decade. I watch a few shows on Netflix – and usually go to IMDB… Read more »

Yes Jews promote racemixing in every race but their own.
Jews are so over-represented in America, there are more Jews who are millionaires and admitted to colleges like Harvard.
America fights Jewish wars and Israel lobbies in America’s elections — and Jews own the media to influence opinions. The Federal Reserve is their piggy bank. When the American people realize this then America will really prosper.

Same goes for “Game of Thrones” series, in which the overwhelming majority of White caracters are shown as blood-thirsty maniacs, while the mudshark “queen” Danaeris(blonde and blue eyed of course)and all the subjects of her multi-racial kingdom are invariably shown as noble, and of course much more “humane” than Whites!….

Even in 2017, and particularly away from big cities and urban areas, most whites still find it unsettling to see interracial couples. This is especially true of white women seen with big and dark black “gorilla” type African-American men. It is seen as deeply repulsive, ominous and threatening to the white race and their females….believe it !

The Caucasian population is diminishing as your daughter’s fall in love with non-white men and have gorgeous mixed-race kids. If there were no pure 1-race humans left on Earth than there would not be racism. I can only hope I live long enough to witness this happen. It would be the turn of the century!

Sorry, you will NEVER get your dream. Whites are pulling away from breeding down in droves. A piece of diverse shit is no substitute for the great white race. Bye now!!!

White men, in all locales, should compile a mudshark/coal burner list. And publicize it. And keep a nation-wide master copy safely hidden somewhere; because jews will try to obtain as many copies and remove them from the public arena the way they scrub history of jew high-jinks.

Even more revolting than watching White woman with negro male is to see her, later in life, try to obtain a White man who is usually clueless as to what she’d been up to earlier in life.

It’s a big true that White female race mixers do everything they can to cover their history as willing participants of debauchery when they take up with a White man. I have also noticed that White girls who bed-down with Negroes begin to take on a death look. You can see it in their face. They collapse into a slow perish. Death warmed over.

Abigail Adams reportedly said that ‘disgust and horror’ filled her mind when she saw dark-skinned Othello touch pale-skinned Desdemona in the theatrical production of Othello. — Of the Founding Fathers, the first Presidents of the U.S., it’s figured that John Adams (Abby’s husband), and J.Q. Adams (their son) get a pass from having statues of themselves torn down because they alone among our FFs did not own Negro slaves. That pass is revoked now that we learn John’s wife and J.Q.’s mom was a RACIST! a HATER! a WHITE SUPREMACIST! and likely a HOMOPHOBE! and an ANTI-SEMITE!

The Jews want to destroy the other races by mixing them together. They never promote race mixing in ISRAEL.
Places like America mixing black and white will kill the black race as they are only 9% of the population. So let’s create a great migration out of Africa’s Muslims into white European countries so more Jews move to Israel to vote. Israel’s Muslim population is becoming greater and will outnumber Jews. How will they justify to the world if they ban Muslims from voting?
Reap what they sow; let Israel get invaded by the very people they try to set on us.

Once my young daughter and I were playing with Play-Doh. There were lots of colors–yellow, red, blue, green, orange, purple, brown, black, and white–each in its own separate jar. Each of them looked good individually, and we normally played with just one at a time. Child’s play being what it is, however, each of them eventually became mixed with other colors from the set. And each mixture was ugly. Finally, almost every jar contained Play-Doh of colors so hideously mixed that we ended up throwing out the set. I think the analogy is clear, and I suspect it’s one that even a child can understand.

So much hate. You failed to mention or are not aware children intuition of parents behaviour. The amusement off your analogy is that interracial couples happen when newer generations look beyond the racist outlook of parents generations from both sides and see each other as humans first. More amusing is how Asians,blacks and Latinos are integrating and assimilating but not so much for what is known as white trash. No one wants their genetic contribution into the new generations moving forward. The result is s small pool of possibly inbred lowly educated individuals. Domestic marginalized haters much ilike some on this thread.

Sorry, but I have to tell you that our genetic contribution is here to stay.
Btw, Israel and the jews, they are inbred as well?
The ashkenazi and the other groups of jews?

It all comes down to fathers not teaching their daughters white from wrong… a couple generations back, a young girl cared what her dad would do to her if she brought home a spook… today.. they just have no decent upbringing… diversity is the root of all evil… it’s unnatural… and as humans… we don’t like it… the jews and the media push the interracial and lgbt on us to weaken us… fight back… teach your kids to choose correctly.. and to reject the programming this warped sick world tries to push on decent white people..

If no one has noticed, if you look at white women that are with black men you can usually tell by the look of them they have some sort of mental problem. Most of these white women turn to black men because there’s something not clicking right upstairs, therefore no white men wants them. A lot of these women are either extremely ugly or their personality stinks so damn much white men can’t stand them. These women are usually trailer trash women. The type that dress or act like sluts, obnoxious whores, some fat, others skinny, but also ditsy as hell. The type of women that should have never existed in the first place. These women are probably full of every STD known to man too. I say let the… Read more »

Not all of us White men are interested in shipping any of our women into any non-Whites’ homes. Better that defective Whites be channeled into useful activities (while limiting their abilities to breed as is appropriate) for uplifting our race than to subject them to the tender mercies of our racial competitors.

I ended my cable subscription due to the Jews pushing to prominence the Black man in every goddamn commercial. They do this to make Whites feel as if they’ve been or are being REPLACED and are NOT the dominant race in America. They are hoping for a deeply profound psychological effect that will diminish our ability to survive as a race. THAT mixed with an unequivocal and egregious level of subliminal art designed to get the White Race feeling totally hopeless, free and endless pornography to turn our entire race into a masturbating hyper-orgasmed and willpower-spent race, and the Jews must be feeling quite proud of their antics which will always fail. Why ? How ? Because we know they are doing it. We see it, we hear it, we… Read more »
