Harvard researchers have put out a series of tests called "Implicit Association Tests" that determine a person's biases. If you take the test you will see a series of images flash on your computer screen and you have to respond quickly to them...it's not very complicated, and you will see the detailed instructions at the site. All you have to do is have a quiet environment with no distractions for 5-10 minutes to take the test and have accurate results.

Follow this link: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/demo/selectatest.html , and click on "Take the Race IAT"...it will tell you what to do from there. When you're done, it will tell you your result. Remember what your results are and come back here to share them if you wish, or just enter your results in the poll here.


Remember to have no distractions at all, clear your mind before the test, and go fast!

No--read the paragraph above those stats--they are for everyone who has taken the test--not just you. ;)

And I quote:

"This table does NOT describe your data. This data reflects the results of visitors to the website. The percentages reflect the proportion of people who showed that level of bias."

Only 48%? Well right there we can tell these tests are flawed.These are the results for everyone who took the test. Once you complete the test, they tell you what your results are and then they give you these results, the results of the general population, for the sake of comparison to see where you fit in with the rest of the people. I don't see why you would say it is flawed based on that. (EDIT: I see Dalonord already addressed this above, so please disregard)



Strong Automatic Bias for Whites. No test needed.This isn't one of those dime-a-dozen joke-type-quizzes that are littered all over the Net. This is a Scientific "Implicit Association Test" (made by Harvard University no less!), and I gotta say, it's quite an experience to take the test. Very interesting. You oughta take it just to see

Your data suggest a strong automatic preference for Nords, the likes of which we have never seen. White supremacists even call you extreme. You are a super-nazi.

Your data suggest a strong automatic preference for European American relative to African American

All those Ape faces made me think I was watching the discovery channel for a secound.

Strong Automatic Preference for White. True to my biology! :D Wow, thanks for the link to Race Traitor Dalonord. I am going to spam them so much! :D
I don't feel ashamed for opening the door and picking up books for whites but walking by for blacks. If I am a racist then I am a very happy one! :)
