Does tragedy trump race?
According to recent study by Carnegie Mellon University and Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, people did not show much racial bias when giving financial help to Hurricane Katrina victims.
According to What Determines Giving to Hurricane Katrina Victims: Experimental Evidence on Income, Race, and Fairness (54 pages, PDF), on average, charitable giving to Katrina victims is not affected by the perceived race of the recipients.
This is interesting to me. Have we come a long way now? Are people less racist? Or was the tragedy of Katrina enough to get people to look past their race and find commonality on a human-to-human level?
One more interesting thing: does anyone know what this means?
Caucasians who say they do not identify with their ethnic group
