    I agree that since this is from the University of Chicago there is something afoot with the results. I found that the presentation against the background not the skin color of the person mattered most.

    I have the TV going in the background with a show I'm really wrapped up with. I stopped to do this and hosed the first few until I got the hang of the responses. Still, I managed to "smoke" a few good guys but I only GOT "smoked" myself, once.

    Being left handed it took my about half way to adjust my shooting hand.

    Got through clean, but a bit slowly. Perceived myself to be focusing on nothing but hands. Certainly not skin color. Yet...

    This seems to be an experiment designed to explore the degree to which our ideas of race correlate to a sense of threat or criminality. In my case, I "shot" an armed black man some 6 milliseconds faster than an armed white man. It also took me a whopping 33 ms longer to decide NOT to shoot a black man than a white man.

    There could have been only two reasons for this:

    1. I expected the black man to be a threat--or armed--more than I expected the same behavior from a white man.
    2. The guns were more visible and the cell phones, Coke cans, etc. were less visible in the slides with black men, or the converse, the guns were less visible and the other items more visible in the slides with whites.

    I want to believe that it was #2, but since any experiment worth it's salt would control for #2, I'm led to conclude that it's #1. While I know that we are all racist to some tiny or huge degree or another, it's still hard to have it slap you upside the head. (If that's indeed what this is showing me.)

    I guess I can cling to the fact that this MAY be a crappily constructed experiment...

    Since I'm the original poster, I'll chime in here......

    When I found this & considered the source, I felt that there was some intent on the originator to prove some type of racial bias. I hesitated to put it up, but after some thought (& reviewing my own results), I knew that the gun was the thing we'd concentrate on & not skin color. That's is why I didn't mention the racial component in my original post.

    I think that the results we've seen here, on DC.com, are pretty accurate reflection of those who act responsibly with firearms & use good judgment. Most here will be more apt to concentrate on the the presence of a firearm, rather than color of skin.

    I think this same test given to other groups would NOT turn out the same way as it is doing here. I think that other groups may play into the source's intent & show racial stereotypes or 'profiling'. That being said....I think it speaks highly of the participants here.

    It seems I decided to shoot white folks faster than black folks and that I genearlly took longer in assessing blacks than whites

    It was interesting to ignore the background and focus on the hands that kill you. I'd enjoy seeing that where there were multiple people pictured, e.g. one with a cell, one with a gun and then no with no guns, etc. Very cool.
