    Are you prejuduced?

    Race, religion, nationality ...

    If you're not sure, try Harvard's Implicit biases tests.

    https://implicit.harvard.edu/implici...lectatest.html

    It's kind of interesting. The first time I took it four maybe five years ago, I was moderately biased in favour of people of African descent. The working hypothesis was that persons in US society would have a negatively image of Blacks but a positive of Whites. Mine was the opposite, I favoured people who looked Black. My explanation for that was the Caribbean is a non-white majority so I had no reason to have an overwhelmingly negative perception of Black people because we see everyday people of African descent in any and every position, from Prime Minister, to Doctor, to Teacher, to labourer, vagrant and criminal.


    I took the test again a year and a half later and my results changed to no bias for either 'race'. That's after I'd lived in the US for a bit longer.

    But now that I've been here for more than six years, I'm afraid of what the results might show now.


    Anyway, if you're brave ...

    They have tests for everything.

    I am PREJUDICE.

    I DO NOT FAVOR WOMEN with KNOCK KNEES over those with bowlegs.

    I do not favor a religion that worship cows and monkies and rats over one that worships the belief in one God.

    I do not favor a woman with thin lips over one with THICK LIPS.

    I do not favor a woman with a SQUARE ASS over one with a ROUND ASS.

    I DO NOT FAVOR CURRY chicken over STEW chicken.

    I do not FAVOR WHITE MILK OVER CHOCOLATE MILK.

    I do not favor Europe over AFRICA.

    I DO NOT FAVOR NO other ISLAND nation over that of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

    I FEEL THAT BLACK/AFRICAN WOMEN are the MOST BEAUTIFUL on PLANET EARTH and so I FAVOR THEM over any other kind of women.

    I favor ANDROID PHONES over IPHONE.

    I FAVOR BOXERS over jockeys.

    I favor INTELLIGENT WOMEN with normal looks over sexy women that are dumb as a door knob.

    I FAVOR VINCY SOCA over all other kind of soca music.

    And I FAVOR ISLANDMIX.COM OVER any other CARIBBEAN driven site.

    IT LACK ANY KIND OF LOGICAL APPROACH TO THE QUESTION ASKED?

    It is your STATEMENT that LACK any LOGICAL APPROACH because it failed to RECOGNIZE the LOGIC IN MY APPROACH.

    WHEN ONE LACKS CREATIVITY and INGENUITY, which appears to be your Achilles heel, it is E Z to understand and appreciate why such an individual would come to such an EMPTY CONCLUSION.

    YUHHHHH SEEEEEEE MEEEEEEEE
