Study Suggests Riding Public Transport Makes You Less Prejudiced People-on-the-bus

Forget, for a moment, all the usual benefits of public transportation, like cutting greenhouse gases and reducing traffic. There is a new reason to ride the commuter rails: They provide researchers an excellent laboratory for studying human behavior.

The most recent such study, conducted on several commuter rail platforms in the Boston area, finds that mixing with people of different ethnic backgrounds can influence social acceptance, at first for the worse, but then for the better.

“These things like public transit and the way we build our cities very much affect how we interact with people and how we get along as groups,” said Ryan D. Enos, assistant professor of government at Harvard and author of the study, released Monday. “When we invest in infrastructure, we bring intergroup harmony by encouraging people to interact.”

Because that's how most trips on public transportation end up, yeah.

That's the point mongo

9/11 and 7/7 established that nowhere is safe from the Muslim

So when a bus full of people sees a Muslim with massive backpack getting on I don't think the first thought is "oh he is going camping in London"

Smelly not understanding the study again, so what race are Muslims?

In other words how do you tell what faith someone is?

So there's a photo of a smiling lady sitting behind a black man, which is supposed to show how tolerant she is? The two ladies at the front are not kicking up a fuss about a black man sitting behind them, so they're to be commended as well?

What a silly story, and an even sillier photograph.

What is that blue thing the lady on the left has round her neck?

Ah - cheers.

I think the two ladies at the front are related, so they're sitting together. The lady behind the black man is sitting next to a small dark child but doesn't appear to be with him - she has ear phones in.

Actually, she's probably annoying to sit next to if she has the volume turned up.  Laughing

There you have it, so now Asians are stereotyped because one of the bombers here is of African ethnicity.

DOH

You come out with so much crap it is painful to read it is so embarrassing, as daily many people travel on transport and I do not see people get off just because an Asian has a bag over their shoulder. It is people like you that try to instill such fear of others by fallacy associations
