Jews Not Keen On Neo-Nazis: Science

"In the current study, researchers statistically controlled for race, age and gender, but introduced a story that primed participants to dislike some of the people they were observing: half were presented as neo-Nazis, and half were presented as likeable and open-minded. All study participants recruited for the study were Jewish males."
—The study itself found that "liking or disliking a person can affect how your brain processes actions" but I think that part above is the best.

Was it necessary to use only Jews? The rest of us aren't keen on neo-nazis either.

@cory dodt@twitter Are you kidding? We don't even know if they controlled for specific kinds of Jews! Were there differences among Sephardim vs. Ashkenazim, science? What about the Mizrahim? For that matter, what about we Jewesses? Everyone knows ladies love changing men, maybe neo-Nazis are super-appealing to us. Science, you've just raised more questions than you've answered here!
