Abstract While there is a well-developed literature on public opinion and foreign aid policy, studies have only recently explored the role of survey respondent nativity and have yet to explore the role of racial resentment. In a repeated cross-sectional data analysis (2002–2016), the article exposes that non-native born respondents see more benefit to increased foreign aid than do comparably situated native born citizens. Racial resentment appears to be linked to a lack of generosity towards individuals in need of development aid.
