Mocking flatists is racial dog whistling. It’s misogynistic, too:
Globularism is white supremacy.
Which Democrat presidential candidate has the courage to call out the ubiquitous flatism plaguing this country?
My money is on Marianne Williamson, though there’s a real opportunity for Warren to shore up an electoral weakness. If she’s astute enough to seize it then she deserves the presidency.
++Addition++Commenter EliteCommInc points out that blacks have a high percentage of “probably not true” responses which I aggregated with “probably true” and “definitely true” to get the “is or could be” figures. Here is the same graph with “probably not true” removed, so that these are the percentages who either say it is “probably” or “definitely” true that the earth is flat:
My explanation: I genuinely didn’t look that closely at the three responses other than “definitely untrue”. The percentages saying it definitely isn’t true made the spreadsheet entry quicker, and entertaining the idea that the earth might be flat even if it’s probably roughly spherical still seems pretty bonkers to me, but there is a large percentage of “probably untrue” black responses.
Parenthetically, the color scheme is off because Docs is glitching badly. Hopefully the issues there are resolved soon. Otherwise it’ll be time to find another graph-creating application.
