My Bias, Your Bias, Everybody Bias Bias.
So, someone showed me this site that tests for subconscious bias/racism.
There are several categories to choose from so enjoy.
Post your results here if you dare.

I took the black/white race test, it shows I have a slight bias toward Whites (Europeans) over Blacks (Africans).

RE: My Bias, Your Bias, Everybody Bias Bias.
I did the first one - the weapons/harmless and black/white test.

Quote:Here is your result:
Your data suggest a moderate automatic association for Harmless Objects with Black Americans and Weapons with White Americans.

Meh. If there's anything to it at all, it is probably because I live in a mostly-white area where almost everyone owns guns. If I lived on the south side of Chicago, maybe it would be different. I don't know that it says anything profound about bias.

Hmm. I lived in an almost entirely white area, and for a while worked on the South Side of Chicago.
Maybe I should try that one.

Is there a test which shows my bias against people in general?
Huh

Took the religion one and got "Your data suggest no automatic preference between Islam and Judaism."

Apparently, I prefer Judaism over Christianity. Shocker.

My strategy of ignoring my problems until they disappear never seems to work out for me. ...I'll try to get around to dealing with that in the near future.

I know. I don't know where that could have come from, but the proof was in the test.
