Oh sure, discriminate against gingers and people who live where the sun doesn't shine (Seattle, most of Alaska, etc.)

All humans have some shade of tan or beige skin.  Orange is not a color found on H. sapien.

Yes, and selling them cigarettes gives them more empathy for smokestacks.

and cutting off someone's knees is likely to have them say 'hey look its a midget' less often in the future.

Once the test subjects went black, were they allowed to go back? I was under the impression that wasn't permitted.

And yet critics claimed this to be an indication of racism, when it was actually an attempt to improve racial understanding.

My beef with White people.
You mofos jacked up chicken wing prices, with sports bars
A whole 4olb box use to cost $27 buck, now it's $80+
/to make it even worst you guys don't even eat the damn TIP of the damn wing
//The tip has the most flavor

Pushing anti-racism is not where the money is right now.

/chicken thighs are where it's at, anyway.
 
2013-05-24 03:30:13 PM
At least as likely an explanation is that showing people a dark-skinned hand makes them feel marginally guilty for being racist. There was apparently no experimental control that addressed this. farking stupid psych researchers. I will always be biased against people who overblow statistical analyses of shoddily designed experiments.

This is why I carry around a dark skinned fake rubber hand with me wherever I go. To protect me from whitey racism.

Is that a dark-skinned fake rubber hand in your pants or are you just happy to see me?

Jesse Jackson did not get rich enough to cheat taxes by promoting peace and unity. The democrat party cannot win elections telling people that they are not victims but actually responsible for their own lots in life.

i don't know where you're getting these wings but 40lb is around $35, from what i've seen.

Bringing this up is pretty clear evidence.

Nemo's Brother -

We can probably agree that Democrats have a social view of things and Republicans have an individualist view.
Now if you have a normal bell curve of the population, made up of whatever data (income, IQ, incarceration...), you can say to most of the points to the left that 'you are the cause of your below-averageness.'
Now take a subset of that entire population. Say, ten percent. Say, black people in America. If the distribution of that subset looks the same as the general population, you can say the same thing.
But if that subset skews to the left, then you either have a problem with systemic inequality/oppression, or you have a subset of the population that is actually inferior.
We can probably agree that Democrats think inequality exists, and Republicans think black people are actually inferior.
Be honest.

Well, I suppose the Dutch aren't technically "Northern Europe". Oops.
