Of course, one doesn't need a survey to know this, but they took one anyway.

Exclusive: Trump supporters more likely to view blacks negatively - Reuters/Ipsos poll

NEW YORK | BY EMILY FLITTER AND CHRIS KAHN

Supporters of U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump are more likely to describe African Americans as "criminal," "unintelligent," "lazy" and "violent" than voters who backed some Republican rivals in the primaries or who support Democratic contender Hillary Clinton, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll.

Ahead of the Nov. 8 election to replace Barack Obama, the first black U.S. president, the poll also showed significant numbers of Americans in both the Republican and Democratic parties view blacks more negatively than whites, harbor anxiety about living in diverse neighborhoods and are concerned that affirmative action policies discriminate against whites.

Republicans in the survey expressed these concerns to a greater degree than Democrats, with Trump supporters presenting the most critical views of blacks.

The poll, conducted between March and June, interviewed 16,000 Americans and included 21 questions on attitudes about race. It sought responses from voters who support Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, and her rival U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders. It also surveyed supporters of U.S. Senator Ted Cruz and Ohio Governor John Kasich, the last two Republican candidates to drop out of the race.

1. "Blacks"

The Reuters story is silly, of course. But it brings to mind something I always do when hearing/reading about various race-based issues. Try this experiment yourself: Substitute the word "poor" for "black" and it will read the same way. There's something to be learned from that fact.
