Lefties are colourblind; conservatives are racist. As Neil Brown notes, “this argument is advanced by the Left as if it were some sort of unchallengeable truth.”
The argument then goes that left-wingers everywhere, the ALP in Australia, Democrats in the US and social democrats in Europe, are all so tolerant and never let race enter their heads when they are making decisions. In contrast, right-wingers, the Coalition parties here, Republicans in the US and conservatives in Europe, are a lot of red-necked bigots, and on social welfare, immigration, refugee or security issues are anti-black and anti-Muslim. This line is hammered so much it is becoming part of the folklore.
But some recent research shows a different picture.
