Anti-Semitism and Racism, Xenophobia and Intolerance
There is a high correlation between
anti-Semitism and a lack of tolerance on other social issues.
The current study reaffirms one of the more significant findings from the three
previous surveys: that there is a strong correlation between anti-Semitism and racism,
xenophobia and intolerance of diversity.
In other words, those Americans who are most likely to have negative attitudes toward
Jews are also noticeably more likely than the rest of the population to hold intolerant
beliefs about other groups, such as immigrants, gays or people of other races.
As the chart on the following page shows, the most anti-Semitic Americans tend to be
less tolerant than the public at large on issues related to:
- Equal rights
- Race relations
- Sexual orientation and gender
