FIRST I’M A UKIP VOTER, A MIRROR READER - NOW I’M A RACIST
These online test thingies are being very complimentary about recently. The political ones were a bit odd, but this one about prejudices is also odd in its results (hat tip to Voice of the Futue; Beeb story here). It told me that:

Your data suggest a moderate automatic preference for Black People relative to White People

For the record I’m white, so, huh? I mean I was prepared to accept that I would be subconsciously prejudiced in favour of whites to some degree, but this way round? Oh well, whatever.
They offer quite a number tests on other prejudices too. So, I took the one on sexual orientation which told me that:

Your data suggest a moderate automatic preference for GAY PEOPLE relative to STRAIGHT PEOPLE

Again, for the record, I’m straight. Ought I to reconsider? ;) Yes, I know that’s not what the result means, but again I find it odd, as I would have expected the opposite which I wouldn’t have really been happy about but that I was willing to accept.
I don’t know what these tests actually show us then, but at least they seem to say that my partiotism is intact:

Your data suggest a slight automatic preference for United Kingdom relative to United States

Labels: ,


Comments:
I only did the race one - but, strangely enough, I got the same result, slight preference for black over white.
