    Ok... but how did you type people and determine if they were racist?
    Don't make whine out of sour grapes.

    They (tens of thousands) stated their types, and I looked at how they answered certain questions.

    A few of the questions:

    - Would you consider dating someone who has vocalized a strong negative bias toward a certain race of people?
    - Is interracial marriage a bad idea?
    - Do you believe that there exists a statistical correlation between race and intelligence?
    - Are you racist?
    - If you were going to have a child, would you want the other parent to be of the same ethnicity as you?
    - Do you have a problem with racist jokes?
    - Would you strongly prefer to go out with someone of your own skin color / racial background?
    - Should people of a particular race be allowed to adopt children of another race?
    - Do you use racial slurs when you are around friends or family whom you trust?
    - Is it acceptable for an older person to make a racial slur because the term was used commonly when they were young?

    what's the type most likely to be typist?
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    These are actually pretty good questions to gauge it with imo, but my guess is that the types that scored lower on racism probably are more covertly racist than openly racist. Ran into an INFP on this forum using the word hermaphrodite in a mocking tone (not even just that, but as a way of making jokes about men who have more traditionally feminine qualities). Actually I had a debate with one of my closest friends IRL (who I believe is a clear ENFP but tested as INFP) because she didn't think it was racist for white people to use the N-word. Some people's oppressive viewpoints and prejudices are buried deeper, and they may not even know that their beliefs/actions can be harmful since they're usually coming from a position of greater privilege. So, even though it's probably already obvious, I think trying to scale levels of racism with type is interesting but not completely telling.

    This is pretty fascinating and lines up with one of the first studies published by OkC on messaging response rates

    Somehow it doesn't seem like racism and other forms of systematic oppression are big reasons you've used to justify your visceral hatred towards SJs.

    Not surprised, but still disgusted. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    My reason for hatred against SJs is their elitism. They bullied me daily for the sole reason that I was different. Might also be the kill-or-be-killed instinct still in their heads. BTW, I'm an Fe-Inferior and a slight 4.

    People -- not types -- bully people.

    I've been bullied by NTs, SJs, SPs, and probably a few NFs. (Probably the worst bully I experienced in my life was my ESTP father, tbh.)

    ---

    As far as the OP's table goes, is it really that significant a difference?

    The spread on both, for men or women, is only 8%, and the huge majority of people of any type (80% or more of every type!) are not considered racist according to the questions that were asked.

    It all kind of comes off as a petty blame game, honestly.

    If we're looking at a particular type that was 25-30% or more racist than the next type, maybe that would seem more significant, but this? No, not really.
