Group dominance and social inequality

Based on aggregated data representing 41,824 people from dominant societal groups in 27 countries, as well as 4,613 participants from 30 US states, researchers found that the level of national support for existing social hierarchy was positively associated with the degree of macrostructural inequality, social instability, and violence in a given country, and that the degree to which Americans individually support social hierarchies was associated with greater individual racism, sexism, welfare opposition, and tendency for ethnic persecution. - Read at PNAS
