    Are you racially biased?

    With the on going racial discussions about police, race in communities, how people see racial divides and this last horrific shooting in South Carolina's AME Church, it made me seek out an IAT test on race to see just how biased I was. I will post my information below as well as the result of the test which I found to be interesting.

    This is the honor system, so please vote in the poll first, then go to the link and take the test and post your results.
    It would be helpful to post your own race as well as the result of the test.

    Re: Are you racially biased?

    I've taken these sort of tests before, and it shows I hold no bias every time... but I admit I do have my own bias' and thoughts occasionally I feel everyone honestly does... but I don't let those affect my actions, I go out of my way to treat every human being the same, according to their character, and I pride myself on trying to be as objective as I can be.

    The point of this exercise is to vote first, then take the test to see how you REALLY are. I understand if you don't want to take the test and publicize your bias.

    Re: Are you racially biased?

    We all have preferences. We all have biases. It's hardwired into us and there is no escaping it. The issue is whether we act on them in acceptable ways or not.

    I dunno about that, the test relies mainly on your cognitive and motoric skills and your ability to press a key button on the keyboard when a picture shows up as fast as you can. It then switches the keys' meanings and tests you again (in what then becomes a frustrating and longer than necessary experience) to compare the results, and uses the difference to decide how biased you are along with a set of questions that are pretty much directly asking the participant whether or not he is a racist person. It's a fun concept but I'm not sure how trustworthy it really is.

    The test wants me to register, so I'm not going to taker it.

    As for my bias on the issue of race: I don't believe that I have any bias, I've never given in to one. I do however avoid the radical and or "hood" black. I cannot stand White Trash (they embarrass me), and as for others, like the two, it's a matter of behavior to me.

    It's my understanding that the reliability is quite good given it's been around for the past 20+ years. The reliability and accuracy tend to be spot on.
