    [h=1]Low IQ & Conservative Beliefs Linked to Prejudice[/h]There's no gentle way to put it: People who give in to racism and prejudice may simply be dumb, according to a new study that is bound to stir public controversy.
    The research finds that children with low intelligence are more likely to hold prejudiced attitudes as adults. These findings point to a vicious cycle, according to lead researcher Gordon Hodson, a psychologist at Brock University in Ontario. Low-intelligence adults tend to gravitate toward socially conservative ideologies, the study found. Those ideologies, in turn, stress hierarchy and resistance to change, attitudes that can contribute to prejudice, Hodson wrote in an email to LiveScience.
    "Prejudice is extremely complex and multifaceted, making it critical that any factors contributing to bias are uncovered and understood," he said.
    Controversy ahead
    The findings combine three hot-button topics.
    "They've pulled off the trifecta of controversial topics," said Brian Nosek, a social and cognitive psychologist at the University of Virginia who was not involved in the study. "When one selects intelligence, political ideology and racism and looks at any of the relationships between those three variables, it's bound to upset somebody."

    This is news? Of course stupid people use easy things to discriminate against other people; what could be easier to see than skin color?

    We intelligensia use much more sophisticated means to discriminate against other people. Religion.

    it makes a little sense in that:

    when stupid lower class people interact with people of other races, those people are probably also stupid and lower class, and they draw a conclusion from that

    when intelligent and successful people interact with other races, those people are probably also intelligent and successful, so they draw a much more accepting conclusion
