This research paper attempts to show through a survey that Caucasians are more likely to support homosexual's right to marry. It discusses how this tendency of Caucasians to favor laws protecting homosexuals more than African-Americans is most likely to because they have never suffered discrimination to the same extent as African-Americans themselves, and therefore do not feel as threatened by extending such rights as marriage to homosexuals. It analyzes how this relationship is clearly evident again when control variables are introduced.

Data and Methods

From the Paper:

"Darren W Davis approaches the subject of civil liberties differently. In his article "Exploring Black Political Intolerance" Davis states "racial differences in political tolerance are primarily viewed as a function of racial differences in education and the perceived level of threat passed by various groups" ( Davis (1995) 3) Davis asserts that African Americans do not merit the protection of civil liberties as much as Caucasians not only as a consequence of a lesser education, but also as a combined result of low self esteem and because they feel threatened and fear impugnation. In an ill fated attempt to preserve their own rights, African Americans are willing to deny civil liberties to organizations or people who they perceive to be a threat. "
