In 2016, Michael Tesler, a political scientist at the University of California, Irvine,
reported on the results of a survey that asked one half of those polled whether they
agreed with the statement: “Over the past few years, blacks have gotten less than
they deserve.” The other half of poll respondents were asked a nearly identical question,
substituting “average Americans” for blacks, so it read: “Over the past few years,
average Americans have gotten less than they deserve.”
