Results for - Do you think racism is still latent?

1. I am taking an Anthropology class in school and one predominant idea is that racism is as latent as it was before the civil rights movement, and it only has changed tactics. There are no more signs indicating "black's waiting room" or designated water fountains for the races, but racism takes a more subtle form. The following questions will focus each on details, but do you agree with this idea in general?

2. Are you aware of the racism imbedded in the English language and how it affects children's image of themselves from an age as early as four? Phrases like "black lies, white lies" "the black sheep of the family" "calling a spade a spade" etc. shape the notion that light is good, dark is bad as soon as children begin to associate color with langue, registering it on the left side of their brain as opposed to the right, which is where they "perceive" it before they learn language.

I was not aware of this.

I was aware of this. I think this has an influence on how we perceive race as adults.

4. Have you taken the Harvard implicit bias test? The implicit bias test, tests your unconscious associations. Consciously, you may think that neither whites nor blacks are more aesthetically pleasing because, rationally, you know that beauty is subjective to taste. Consciously, you may know that that neither race is congenitally more dangerous than the other, but subconsciously your brain might work in quite a different way. You can take the test by googling "implicit bias test" and click the first like that's under the heading "implicit association test" from the implicit.harvard.edu and select the Race IAT after you have agreed to proceed.

I have not taken this test before, but I will now.
