it says that i prefer whites to blacks but i have no preference. i got tired of the test after they switched the sides so my reaction time was slowed and i kept screwing up the sides. im not racist that`s for sure.

OMG. I can`t believe you guys are ACTUALLY TRYING TO ARGUE WITH THIS.

You guys need to be more honest with yourselves. Like I was. When I answered the questions before hand, I KNEW I was going to prefer Obama to Hillary. AND LO AN BEHOLD. I did.

I also knew I would prefer straight people to gay people. I`m gay, but I know I do not like other gay people. LO AND BEHOLD. The test was right on!

I knew I would prefer skinny to fat. OMG IS THIS SITE PSYCHIC? It said that I did too!

If you got confused, either your IQ is 10, or MAYBE THE TEST WAS RIGHT?

I got confused a little too. The worst was Open Source vs Microsoft. I could not keep them straight. But it repeats the same exact set more often if you answer very slowly or make allot of mistakes.

IF IT DID NOT REPEAT, YOU WERE FAST AN ACCURATE ENOUGH, AND IT`S YOUR PERSONAL BIAS, NOT THE TESTS FAULT THAT YOU`RE A RACIST.

`Your data suggest a strong automatic preference for Abled Persons compared to Disabled Persons.`

Well, since I actually have a number of mental disorders and put myself under suffering from emotional disability, I don`t find this offensive to me, I just find this completely stupid. I have a complete respect for anybody who is disabled and admire disabled people who try to live like people without disorders.

The test seems a tad confusing to be honest, I made mistakes because I was confused what was good and what was bad in this part etc.

I think everyone has a preference for certain people, depending on how they grow up and their enviroment. Having a preference doesn`t make you racist. Going around and shouting degrading comments about someone because of their ethnicity is racist.

True. I`ve been around Black people really more than whites..And I feel comfortable with Blacks...depending on their attitude. My best friend is mixed. When the good and bad, African American and European American thing changed it confused me. :-( I`m gonna try out the others they had.

It sort of surprised me when it said "Your data suggest a slight automatic preference for African American compared to European American." considering all the racist jokes I tell. Then again, when it comes to my jokes I never really mean them and no race is immune to my ridicule... You hear that you dirty Swedes?!

Anyways, I`m not black and I`m only half Euro-American (25% Irish and 25% Italian), so I wonder how my biases would stack up against Filipinos (my other 50%). My dislike for them would probably be really obvious... Almost every non-Americanized Filipino I`ve ever met annoys the hell out of me.

Another thing that this test got me thinking about is that while I have a number of black friends, I prefer fair or pale skin when it comes to girls I date. I mean, I don’t even like it when a white girl has a deep tan. Weird...

I`ve done this test before and apparently i have a strong preference for European Americans which is odd...I`m half hispanic/half white and have been around every type of minority and had friends of all types my whole life. I think the test in a way is a reflection of the media we see around us everyday though and our subconscience reactions. All in all when i took this test several months back it really bugged me but it`s a good thing to try to know and understand. I`ve known several other people to take this test who I consider very open-minded and accepting of all who got the same thing. It`s pretty odd. On a seperate note at the time i also took the native american and gay one. The native american was i do not view them as "foreigners" so no preference. The gay one showed that i had a slight preference for straight again funny because i have gay family members. All in all, an enriching experience. Don`t hate yourself if it makes you sound bad...just think on it.

"Most respondents find it easier to associate African American with Bad and European American with Good compared to the reverse."

Obviously if it makes us get used to pressing "e" for good and European and "i" for bad and African in the beginning, we`ll get all confused once they`re switched. They`re begging for inaccuracy.

"Fanaticirony.......I dont think ur racist i think ur ignorant. Its sad how white people see nothing wrong in the word. Maybe u shud think about the neaning of the word and hwo it wuz used to hurt people. cuz its really not that ok................"

Exactly, it`s not okay to use the word, but as a secret joke heard by nobody but ourselves, my friend and i find humour in it. She calls me the `C` word all the time, and i never EVER use that word at all, but i think it`s so funny when she calls me it. What makes using the `n` word with Lisa so funny, is that she`s white, the whitest, as am i. It`s a stupid ironic joke, like if i said Devi3000 was the hottest bloke i know.

As for the Jackson Campaign; i just read about that on Wikipedia.com. My friend lives in Jackson MS and i know there`s still a lot of hostility there, that`s why i got a bit peeved with Ryan when he mentioned Deep Southerners in that way.

<Dances about a bit singing Mm-Bop> Oh well.

It`s changed to sex from race. Want to know what the ultimate irony of all this is?

They are trying to make you feel racist or sexist by playing games full of double talk to trick you into agreeing with them. Just like how they do it in real life.

Fact is, there`s non-nice individuals in every group, and every group has unique attributes. If you can`t accept differences, including your own, how can you ever truly respect anyone else?

RyanF701- Yeah see i was just fooling around. My friend Lisa and i are both white and call eachother the `N` word cos it`s funny to do so. I never call anybody else it because it`s wrong. My housemate used to be heavily racist, but that was because of his upbringing. I didn`t know a lot of non-white kids when i was in school, apart from one Asian family and one African family. To me, calling a white person the `n` word isn`t racist at all. But making any derogatory comment about a whole race or group is. It`s discrimination however it`s looked at.

Arizona ftw. I`m only just starting to know people from outside Europe, and it`s interesting to see the different outlooks on other races. I used to think that those in the US kinda hated Canadians.. But ya don`t, it`s just friendly banter like between Brits and French.

I hate racism, but i like crude and un-pc jokes. :D I`m not racist, i have a colour TV. I`m not racist, i love black cats. I`m not racist, a hispanic guy mows my lawn,etc

"Your data suggest a slight automatic preference for White People compared to Black People."

two points:
The ppl you naturally are at most ease with are usually the ppl youve spent most of your time around. So if you were brough up in an all white family, a majorit white school in a majority white country and wake up every morning to your white face, obviously and nutrally youre going to have a slight preferance. This doesnt make you `racist` in the negative sense of the word; its perfectly understandable and instinctively human.
2) the second part of the test was bogus. Obviously if your train your mind to associate black with bad and white with good when you siuddenly switch the catagories your mind is still on the same track it was just b4 and takes a moment or two to adjust so youre going to make a few mistakes. It would be exactly the same if the catagories where the other way around. This was quackdom.

hmm...prolly half the black ppl in the U.S. have never been to Africa and half the white ppl have never been to Europe, so why try to sound P.C. by calling us "African" and "European". Just call us black and white (most of us dont care)

Oh yeah, and supposedly, I like white people more (which is untrue). )-|

<Frowns> If you weren`t 13 i`d throw a rock at you. A black rock to show i`m not racist."

Who said I had anything against anyone from there? I was using it as an example, since I can`t think of anyone that goes "OH HEY, 16 YEAR OLDS FROM ARIZONA HATE (THIS GROUP OF PEOPLE) AND (DO THIS).", if they did, I would gladly use it :P

The reason it pisses me off so much is because my dad, who isn`t around anymore thank God, was heavily racist and I had to deal with his poo every day until I got big enough to stand up for myself on it, funnily enough, after that.. he stopped.

Anyways, to spare you my life story, I have nothing against you or any other racist as a p

All people have racial preferences, it`s in our DNA. As much as government and the education system try to remove it to an irrational degree(noted in how far people will go to prove that they are not one of those dreaded "racist"). An instructor gave the example of multiple islands, and each island had only people of a particular race. In the scenario you must choose an Island to live on for the rest of your life. (no transfers are allowed after choosing an Island). Obviously most people would choose their own particular race as they are the people you would identify with the most. In today’s PC world if you did not choose an island with a different race you could very well be labeled a racist. Racial preference is natural, as long as you don`t illogically hate a group of people for their genetics. Pick a good reason like over half of a particular group of people spend at least two years of their lives incarcerated, that’s a better reason to dislike a group

Little to no preference. Yesss. Haha, everyone who`s saying their racist responses are wrong are...wrong. Because the test doesn`t measure if you`re actually racist. You might consciously be totallyyyy equality. But sub-consciously, all the sh*t you`ve heard about black people shows up in the test even if you`re no consciouslyl ike that.

Who really cares?

Anything not politically correct nowadays will brand you racist (lol, Imus attack). I hate being PC, so you might as well call me a racist but I get along fine with everyone.

There is nothing to fear if you have a "racist" thought every now and then, its normal human behavior. Just like that one song, "Everyone`s a little bit racist...sometimes."

Take it too far though and thats when its a problem.

I had a moderate preference for European Americans.. Don`t know how reliable the test is but, I guess it figures, because I live among white people..
Maybe it`s because of that, but I did think that the black faces were less attractive and looked less happy.


But what did you say about there being white/good black/bad first? I`m quite sure I had it the other way round first!
Does it switch between people or was I wrong?

to many comments to little interest in reading the.

seems like everyone got white/good black/bad first. i got black/good white/bad first and it told me

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

call me racist if you want but i dont hate any hole race. win i hate people its for the actions they take or the way they act not how the look.

maybe i dont find african facial features attractive but i dont hate them.

I took that whole long test, and it stuck on the "Please Wait" page at the end, so I don`t know my result!

However, a good way to see that Americans (Black AND White) have preference towards White Americans is the Doll Test. When a college student put two dolls infront of children, one Black and one White, she asked them general questions about the dolls.

i.e. "Which doll is good/bad"
"Which one do you like/dislike"
"Which one would you be more afraid of?"

Almost all of the children (Black and White alike) chose the Black doll as the negative one. The when the Black children were asked which one looked like them, they were all hesitant to pick up the correct doll.
Just shows that we may not be "racist" still, but our country still has a LONG way to go.

Don`t worry about the test. I have some friends that worked on a project like this and it is incredibly inconclusive. The fact is that you cannot juggle all four catagories and the new information you are being given all at once. It also show more negative expressions for African Americans and vice versa for European Americans. This test is complete speculation horse crap!

I was thinking about that when I first took the test but I feel that it’s designed that way for a reason. What they’re trying to do is get your knee-jerk reaction because those tend to be more honest than anything else. It’s almost impossible to test for something like this with 100% accuracy so they’re trying to get you in a state when you are prone to make a subliminal slip. More concisely, the theory is that you may have biases that you aren’t aware of. I mean, is sorting things into two groups based on one of two criteria really all that confusing?

"this takes so long..."

lol… Come on, it takes about five minutes. Besides, if you had something better to do you wouldn’t be at a site called “i-am-bored”.

That had nothing to do with racism. I mean, I can see how they might think so, but there are far too many things going on, and obviously the subject will get confused. I think that`s why there is such a high percentage of people who prefer white people. I bet that if you were to put the `black people=good, white=bad` combo first, the data would switch.
Btw, I got little to no automatic preference to black or white people. I wasn`t unhappy with my data, but I think the test is flawed.

That test was actually really stupid. Obviously people are going to get confused when they include the whites with the good and the blacks with the bads first and then switch it. It`s not a matter of prejudice at all, you learn to do things on the different sides and then it`s difficult to unlearn that.
