We present that the presence of African American troopers within the UK throughout WWII lowered anti-minority prejudices, a results of the constructive interactions that occurred between troopers and the native inhabitants. The change has been persistent: in locations the place extra African American troopers have been posted, there are fewer members and voters for the UK's essential far-right celebration, much less prejudice implicit in opposition to blacks and fewer people professing racial prejudice, all measured round 2010. Our outcomes point out that intergenerational transmission from dad and mom to kids is the most probably rationalization.
