US study analyses 'the religion-racism paradox'

New York (ENI). A recent study analysing a half century of research and data
on race and religion in the United States has concluded that religious
belief does not inoculate believers from racial prejudice - a finding its
authors call "the religion-racism paradox". The study is entitled, "Why
Don't We Practice What We Preach? A Meta-Analytic Review of Religious
Racism," One of conclusion of the study is that religious racism "partly
reflects intergroup dynamics," the study. News about the study is carried by
Miller-McCune.com. Such racism, "arises because religions are social
groups," said Wendy Wood, a social psychologist who teaches at the
University of Southern California and one of the authors of the study, which
was first released in February. [467 words, ENI-10-0360]
