Like Restributionism? So Do Racists, a Statistical Analysis Shows

  1. Hmmm, a correlation between those who like to blame others for their problems for irrational reasons and those who want to take money from people who earned it and give it to those who didn't? Why am I not surprised? Racists seem to have a problem with that whole "personal responsibility" thing.
