    "Your data suggest little to no automatic preference between White People and Black People."

    Relief. I kind of thought that wouldn't be the case.

    Sorry.

    They have various bias tests.

    One of them is for race.

    I lost the results, but it said I had a strong implicit preference for Democrats and Others.

    Ehh. I did all the tests, and every single time I came out as 'slight preference for ____'. Whichever one happened to be associated with 'good' the first time around.

    I quite quickly got used to the ones they put together first and then got confused when it swapped around. And my eyes start going wonky after a while.

    Slight preference for European Americans over African Americans. I think that's accurate. I'm more used to being around EAs than AAs, and being around EAs is more comfortable for me than being around AAs, but nothing drastic.

    However, when it came to Arab Muslims vs. other people...hoo boy...way prefer others.

    I took the racist test, and came up as having little or no automatic preference between white and black people.
    I was surprised to see how many had automatic preferences: 70% had results showing automatic preference for white people, and 12% had automatic preference for black people.

    Because a much larger proportion of AAs live in poverty than EAs so there happens to be far more violent AA crime than EA crime, so they make for easy media pickings.

    We all have racist biases. Would you rather see a black person or a white person in a alley way in the middle of the night?
