Let me guess.

If your face is white, then that is the primary indicator you are a horrible, horrible racist.

Was I right?

Just a guess, but could this be one of those "academic joke" papers?

All the study did was prove that those looking for racism were facists.

My “Soul Patch” reduces my light reflectivity just enough to be a suspected rather that assured racist.

white = racist

white + male = really racist

white + male + conservative = psycotic, homicidal racist

Human beings...*all* human beings...are hard wired to prefer their own kind.The more you have in common with another person,in *all* respects (including things like physical appearance) the more likely you truly are to prefer his/her company.That's very different,however,from thinking that certain types of people are intrinsically inferior to you.I am neither intrinsically superior,nor inferior,to any other person on earth.Different in many ways (including appearance) certainly.But not superior or inferior.

An earlier study showed that the appearance of a person’s genitals is the key to determining their racial prejudice. I propose that a picture of every politicians’ genitals be made public so we voters will be better able to determine who to vote for. Do I hear a ‘second’?

I probably got labeled a racist yesterday at Sam’s Club when I called out a morbidly obese black checkout girl for her rude behavior——at the time, there were quite a few black folks within listening range. Luckily, I don’t give a damn what they thought.
