Using the Gosling-Potter internet project, we examine the interaction between political ideology, two key demographic variables (Race, Sexual Orientation), and the consequences of this interaction on self-esteem and personality. We find that members of disadvantaged groups like African-Americans or homosexuals who are also conservatives exhibit lower levels of self-esteem and higher levels of Openness.
