Rock music makes white people racist?

Though the study is interesting, it does lack a little bit of that “causation” thing that seems to matter in science. After all, it’s not rock music that’s making these students racist, but, rather, it’s rock music that’s perhaps forcing people to exhibit beliefs that are already held. Is it the case that rock music allows some people to feel comfortable being racist? Or reminds them to be racist? Whatever the case, the science still seems kinda wonky.

  1. I don’t think it’s any wonder that white conservatives tend to play rock anthems at their rallies, no matter how dubious the science involved in this study is. It’s certainly interesting at any rate–thanks for sharing.
