    I probably have a subconscious racist bias--99% of people that I interact with/see are white Canadian Euro descendants.

    Oou, I have one: At my university, we have a disproportionate amount of Asians relative to the city's population. Asians study. A lot.

    That's the thing about stereotypes. . .

    A Finn? I'm a tad Saami.
    It's on this page--> https://implicit.harvard.edu/implici...lectatest.html

    Saami on which country? (I'm from so south, I never even seen any Saami folks, only from tv-comedies... )

    Saami from Northern Finland. The Vikings, you know. . .

    I'm still learning about them but it sounds like on your Finnish TV it might be equivalent to the "Beverly Hillbillies!"

    I've seen old photos of them and they are very handsome people.

    Thanks for the URL. I didn't take the test.

    I think vikings were mostly Norwegian...

    The Saami have been stereotyped as drunk folk who sit in their tents and sing weird traditional songs This comes from a popular comedy show in the early nineties.

    Saami girls are beautiful

    Yes, my peeps were Vikings. But I have found out that they did a little "shopping" in northern Finland. They did a little "shopping" most all over, I think. Funny thing since they usually brought their wives with them. (Somebody had to serve the lutefisk. . .)

    We've noticed that many in our family have Asian eyes.

    Yep, my initial reaction to someone is governed far more by their dress than their skin color. I have a pretty strong cultural bias. It's annoying that some people, in their zeal to 'rid the world of racism', can't tell the difference.

    Your data suggest a moderate automatic preference for African American compared to European American.
    Uh, white people.

    We don't have that many black people over here, though, so considering the lack of familiarity, it's slightly weird. Or maybe I'm yearning for something new.

    It is difficult to learn about other cultural types without personal access to many. College will provide some experience but not the same type as living next door.
