Measure Your Racism Online

The book Blink I blogged about referenced an online tool developed at Harvard that attempts to measure certain biases / preferences that one holds within his/her unconscious thinking.

The technique is called an Implicit Association Test (IAT). It works by flashing words or pictures on a screen and having you classify them as quickly as possible.

Go take the "Race IAT" to measure your bias of white or black skinned people.

The site is here: http://implicit.harvard.edu

Click on the "Demonstration" button and follow the screens until you can select which IAT to take.
