Yeah it's the whole "that would probably be delicious, if it weren't just a mystery smell coming from a laundry vent... WHY THE HELL is it coming from the laundry vent?! Are they tumble roasting a tandoori chicken?"

With a few quick modifications to the dryer, that might work Consider

At the moment i live in the deep south as a lesbian athiest from the north. I would live in a Muslim neighborhood if given the chance. (Assuming they are tolerant.) I hate the south imo.

People would be quite amazed at some of the shit I've heard people say in Japan and China by cultures we don't typically stereotype as being racist, ethnocentric, anti-Muslim, etc.

I'd prefer a Muslim family to my paranoid solitary white male neighbor who talks about violence far too often. Dude is unsettling to say the least.

Tell the concerned lady I'd be happy to trade.

I'm not that bad once you get to know me Hobo

I mean I'm not that good either, but I'm pretty good at pretending.

I have neither the desire nor inclination to know what Tommyboy's interpretation of that study is, but the group has a solid reputation for conducting rigorous analysis and that looks a thorough analysis to me looking at the data from a number of different facets. My read is that the margin of sampling error of 2.2% falls within the 95% CI. Which means the p-value would be <= 0.05 making it statistically significant. No? Help me out here brother.

The margin for the responses of each sub-group are correspondingly larger.

Well perhaps it would be easier if we start from the beginning. Prior to the pew being cited, you wrote of how Judeo-Christians have teamed up against the new other (Muslims), and I pointed out that you're primarily only speaking about white Judeo-Christians. And that this attitude isn't shared by brown christians.

No, that isn't what I said. I said that there have always been people worried about the new religious 'other', but that historically the identity of that other has changed as immigration and demographics do.

This makes no specific reference to race, which is a thing you pulled from your ass for the sake of disagreeing with me.

Because your comments were based on "NO U" and "BUT THATS JUST WHITE PEOPLE LOL".

You misrepresented the data, because you don't know what margins of error are.

(19-01-2016 01:25 PM)Tomasia Wrote:  Even if you want to use the survey where muslims are excluded from the respondents, the survey still shows that black protestant attitudes towards Muslims is still more positive than white evangelical attitudes (44 vs 30), in fact it's equivalent to atheists/agnostic attitudes towards muslims in that survey.

Incidentally, attitudes towards Muslims correlates almost exactly with personal acquaintance (and likewise for atheists). This is a recurring phenomenon in social science, perhaps most robustly catalogued in attitudes towards sexual minorities, so far as US data goes.

Of course, since the data do not give the median and variance, we don't know how the averages are actually constituted in any case. You don't even have a real point here; you just wanted to argue with a straw man.
(lest I need to reiterate: I made no reference to specific groups, racial or otherwise, in my comment; you added that bit)

At best you're saying the attitudes of all demographic groups are not exactly the same, which honest observers would clearly see is not something that was ever in dispute.

We have Muslim neighbors. We live in an apt and I've seen a couple that lives below us. The only thing that went through my mind is how sweet he was with his wife. So no it doesn't bother me.
