Sports and politics: How strong is group identity?

This post was originally published on this site

  • It is often suggested that identity politics is something that marginalized groups do. American journalist and Vox co-founder Ezra Klein argues that it’s something we all do. “All politics all the time is influenced by identity.”
  • In social psychology, experiments in the minimum viable group paradigm methodology have shown that no matter how arbitrary the distinction, those who belong to one group tend to favor that group and discriminate against others.
  • Group identity trumps all else when it comes to politics and policy decisions.
  • Check out new episodes of Klein’s podcast, The Ezra Klein Show, every week.
