I know I shouldn't have, but it was irresistible. I tried the Project Implicit test, the one that's supposed to reveal your secret racial preferences. It seems I have them, but not in the way you'd guess:
You have completed the Light Skin - Dark Skin IAT.
Your data suggest a strong automatic preference for Dark Skin compared to Light Skin.
Thank you for your participation. Just below is a breakdown of the scores generated by others. Most respondents find it easier to associate Dark Skin with Bad and Light Skin with Good compared to the reverse.
Huh. How do you explain this? Do you think it's just that I've been living for a long time in a country where most people are more dark-skinned than me? Or is it something else?
I sure didn't think I was in any way unusual like this.
I guess I'm glad that I have scientific proof that I'm not a racist, but something in me says the test is flawed--can't put my finger on what it is--can you?
