A new study from a Yale professor shows that “white liberals” dumb down their language when talking to African-Americans.

Professor Cydney Dupree, assistant professor of organizational behavior at the Yale School of Management, found that “white liberals tend to downplay their own verbal competence in exchanges with racial minorities,” according to Yale Insights.

Words - Liberals - Words - African-Americans

In other words, white liberals avoid using big words around African-Americans.

Dupree and her team began their research by analyzing speeches made by Democrats and Republicans.

Candidates - Words - Speeches - Minority - Audiences

“Democratic candidates used fewer competence-related words in speeches delivered to mostly minority audiences than they did in speeches delivered to mostly white audiences,” the study found.

On the opposite end of the political spectrum, white conservatives, who white liberals often accuse of racism, don’t change their language when speaking to minorities.

Difference - Speeches - Republican - Candidates - Study

“The difference wasn’t statistically significant in speeches by Republican candidates,” the study found. However, there wasn’t as much data on Republicans to work with, which prompted further research.

After doing preliminary research, Dupree and her team designed an experiment to test their ideas.

Experiment - Participants - Partners - Name - Name

The experiment required white participants to respond to hypothetical partners, who would either be given a stereotypically white name or a stereotypically black name.
