I'm sure you've asked this to yourself and/or others before. The Implicit Association Test: Black and White Race was a study to test whether you have an "automatic preference" for European Americans compared to African Americans http://www.understandingprejudice.org.... The test should take no longer than 15 minutes. Your goal is to answer as quickly and accurately as possible. If your test results showed a preference for a certain group, you may have a hidden, or unconscious, bias in favor of that group. Feel free to take the test and post your results. Mine was "your data suggest a moderate automatic preference for European American compared to African American."

The results of more than one million tests suggest that most people have unconscious biases. For example, nearly two out of three white Americans show a moderate or strong bias toward, or preference for, whites, as do nearly half of all black Americans. Implicit associations are often at odds with our conscious attitudes and beliefs. This does not mean that one is more accurate than the other. Rather, it suggests that we can have two unique evaluations of the same concept -- one conscious and the other unconscious.

For those of you who are lazy, here are the population test results:
Test Result% of Test Takers
Strong automatic preference for White people 48%
Moderate automatic preference for White people 13%
Slight automatic preference for White people 12%
Little or no automatic preference 12%
Slight automatic preference for Black people 6%
Moderate automatic preference for Black people 4%
Strong automatic preference for Black people 6%

So, as per usual, here are some questions to contemplate: do you agree with your test results? Do you think you have a conscious preference for members of your race? Unconscious? Are you surprised at your test results? What do you think about the overall result for the percentages of test takers? What is your assessment on the accuracy of this test? Discuss.

I got slight preference for African American the first time.

Then I took it again and got slight preference for whites

Then I took it again and got slight preference for African American.

Then I took it again and got no preference.

You didn't. I apologize. And yes, this is your only thread on racism recently.

It's just that in the news, I've been hearing a lot of stuff about racism. It's annoying the living heck out of me. I guess I can't tell you what you can or cannot post (after all, you're the moderator, not me), so I'll just leave it at that.

But you did say you want to stop racism, so you shouldn't give anything related to racism airtime, just saying . . .

Mine was "your data suggest a moderate automatic preference for European American compared to African American."

The results of more than one million tests suggest that most people have unconscious biases. For example, nearly two out of three white Americans show a moderate or strong bias toward, or preference for, whites, as do nearly half of all black Americans. Implicit associations are often at odds with our conscious attitudes and beliefs. This does not mean that one is more accurate than the other. Rather, it suggests that we can have two unique evaluations of the same concept -- one conscious and the other unconscious.

For those of you who are lazy, here are the population test results:
Test Result% of Test Takers
Strong automatic preference for White people 48%
Moderate automatic preference for White people 13%
Slight automatic preference for White people 12%
Little or no automatic preference 12%
Slight automatic preference for Black people 6%
Moderate automatic preference for Black people 4%
Strong automatic preference for Black people 6%

So, as per usual, here are some questions to contemplate: do you agree with your test results? Do you think you have a conscious preference for members of your race? Unconscious? Are you surprised at your test results? What do you think about the overall result for the percentages of test takers? What is your assessment on the accuracy of this test? Discuss.
Do you want to stop racism? Then stop talking about it.

That's not what this thread is about...God you people are so critical.
Could you at least answer the question?

What question? "Do you want to stop racism?" You answered it yourself.
I assumed that you wanted to stop racism; however, I didn't have your actual input. But now that you say that, if you truly want to stop racism, then why talk about it so much?

Where in my post did I once mention stopping racism? Also, what do you mean "so much"? I have made ONE thread about it today and I don't remember the last time I posted in a thread about racism.
You didn't. I apologize. And yes, this is your only thread on racism recently.

It's just that in the news, I've been hearing a lot of stuff about racism. It's annoying the living heck out of me. I guess I can't tell you what you can or cannot post (after all, you're the moderator, not me), so I'll just leave it at that.

But you did say you want to stop racism, so you shouldn't give anything related to racism airtime, just saying . . .

Where did I say this?
Nevermind, this conversation doesn't seem to be going anywhere.

I'm sure you've asked this to yourself and/or others before. The Implicit Association Test: Black and White Race was a study to test whether you have an "automatic preference" for European Americans compared to African Americans http://www.understandingprejudice.org.... The test should take no longer than 15 minutes. Your goal is to answer as quickly and accurately as possible. If your test results showed a preference for a certain group, you may have a hidden, or unconscious, bias in favor of that group. Feel free to take the test and post your results. Mine was "your data suggest a moderate automatic preference for European American compared to African American."

The results of more than one million tests suggest that most people have unconscious biases. For example, nearly two out of three white Americans show a moderate or strong bias toward, or preference for, whites, as do nearly half of all black Americans. Implicit associations are often at odds with our conscious attitudes and beliefs. This does not mean that one is more accurate than the other. Rather, it suggests that we can have two unique evaluations of the same concept -- one conscious and the other unconscious.

For those of you who are lazy, here are the population test results:
Test Result% of Test Takers
Strong automatic preference for White people 48%
Moderate automatic preference for White people 13%
Slight automatic preference for White people 12%
Little or no automatic preference 12%
Slight automatic preference for Black people 6%
Moderate automatic preference for Black people 4%
Strong automatic preference for Black people 6%

So, as per usual, here are some questions to contemplate: do you agree with your test results? Do you think you have a conscious preference for members of your race? Unconscious? Are you surprised at your test results? What do you think about the overall result for the percentages of test takers? What is your assessment on the accuracy of this test? Discuss.
Do you want to stop racism? Then stop talking about it.

Well, I asked you if you wanted to stop racism, and you told me that I answered it myself. And I was assuming that you wanted to stop racism, so when you told me that, I thought you were saying that you wanted to stop racism.

No, no. That's not right. You said "Do you want to stop racism? Then stop talking about it". This means you found something in my thread that had me saying I wanted to stop racism, or implied it. It's okay to admit that you made a mistake. Jeez.
I should've stopped this conversation sooner. It's really starting to become unproductive. I'll just stop here. Have a nice night.

Wow, okay.

This test is stupid, because there's going to be confusion between the keys if you have to do it as fast as possible.

I got a strong preference for Whites, but I will say I don't have preference for any race. This test is utterly dumb, and the mistakes I made were based on confusion, not on racial bias.

It's an Implicit Association Test. It's not testing whether you consciously believe you have a preference for whites or not. I don't agree with my results either, I feel it should be "strong" and not "moderate".

How stupid. Preferring your own race over others isnt racism.
