So ... are you a racist? Take the harvard test

With such long running "racism" threads, I figured this would be a good forum to put this link:

Re: So ... are you a racist? Take the harvard test

my data suggests

little to no automatic preference between African American and European American

I struggle to see fully how the test can be effective

I agree. I made a couple of mistakes against whities when I dropped my sandwich in my lap

Re: So ... are you a racist? Take the harvard test

Your data suggest a moderate automatic preference for European American compared to African American.

It must be because I am South African. So, they recommend doing it again, which I did at break-finger speed and this is what I got:

There were too many errors made to determine a result.

That's what I thought too, my fingers got confused when they switched order & hit the key my brain was not thinking about .

Re: So ... are you a racist? Take the harvard test

at first I actually chose wrongly because I thought they were trying to catch me out - you know, like the fake boob tests.

And I've still got mustard on my shirt

Re: So ... are you a racist? Take the harvard test

You probably do not want to try these fake boob tests at work if you like your job . I got 17 out of 20 (sorry for the hijack Nanda). Now back to the original test...

Well I'm a bit of a b'tard apparently:

"Your data suggest a strong automatic preference for White People compared to Black People."

Don't think that's right...
