Race Worldviews: Parallel universes, even among the young … in the USA

Parallel universes, even among the young in the USA

By Catherine Rampell – October 28 at 2:41 PM – Washington Post

commentaryMy column from Tuesday delved into the parallel universe that consumers of right-wing media occupy. But the stark divide in world perspective is not confined to left and right; it also exists, of course, between other demographics, including the races.
