That is a limb I will not climb out on. What I said was looking at the location of the base, the statistical breakdown of the location, one can infer that a group from they area would have a dispersion that matches the dispersion in the local area. The same percentages of any one minority group would show up the same in the sample group as in the sample population.
Now if you have done any traveling in the south, you would know that racism is alive and well. I will admit I have not done any research to support any specific conclusion, that is why I say one can expect....
The fact that the republican party is still the anti gay/lesbian party does show that they have a built in bias against what they do not care for. I am a family man with kids and is as straight as it goes. But I could care less what you orientation may be, what color your skin may be, or what your religion may be. Can you claim the republican party can be described as the same?
Oh I am sure there are liberal racist too. But I would be willing to bet that the sheer number of conservative racists would dwarf the number of liberal racists by many orders of magnitude!
For the record, I consider myself a centralist. Someone that has both conservative and liberal views. The world is not black and white but rather many shades of grey.....
