    I did another test, the race one and, it suggested that I have a moderate automatic preference for Black Americans than White Americans. *shrugs*

    You have completed the Black-White IAT.
    The line immediately below summarizes the results of your task performance.

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

    So far I'm dis-proving their hypotheses but, in their defence, these tests were geared towards Americans, n alot of us didn't grow up in this society. So, it's understandable if some prominent ideologies here are not a part of our psyche. For example, the skin colour test wanted to show that people would express biases in favour of lighter-complexioned people, and, the race test wanted to show that most Americans thought more higher of Whites as opposed to Blacks. These tests are fun. I'm going to take another one. I can't wait to see my room-mate's results.
