The University of Delaware has been doing sterling work in the field of tracking down and obliterating racism, otherwise known as THE WORST THING IN THE WORLD EVER.
University of Delaware worked with researchers in China, France and Canada to conduct a study on a class of Chinese kindergartners who exhibit signs of racial bias.
The scientists showed the kids computer-generated images of faces that looked equally Asian and African, and also displayed happy and angry expressions. Given that the children spend most of their time around Asians, they tended to identify the happy faces as Asian and the angry faces as African.
The bastards! How can we wipe the racist babies racist brains clean of this toxic racism? Is the only question worth asking…
“If you can get the kids to start thinking about members of other races as unique individuals, you’re going to be more likely to prevent stereotypes from sweeping in and generalizing across all of the ‘same-type’ faces,” said Paul Quinn, a UD psychology professor and co-author of the study.
When Quinn and his colleagues showed the kindergartners the racially ambiguous faces again, the number of times they identified the angry face as African dropped significantly.
Though the difference before and after the task was striking, Quinn isn’t sure how long this effect will last.
“If get the children to come back a week later, where they have returned to their environment and again are seeing mostly Asian faces, would you find that the effects of the training would hold up? Or would you have to hold a refreshment type of training?” inquired Quinn.
So the answer, if you’re following, is to take the evil racist babies out of their homes where they are bound to, racistly, develop a preference for their own parents over, say, some random black bloke. This could be the only way to eradicate EVIL RACISM for ever. On the other hand, of course, the most RACIST (boo! Evil!) people tend to come from areas where they’ve had plenty of encounters with the people they (RACISTLY!) hate.. So maybe sending little white and Chinese babies to spend time with Random Black Bloke isn’t a good way to get rid of racism after all. We wouldn’t want them to become even more racist than they already are, now would we? Best shield them from crime stats too while we’re at it.
This isn’t the first time babies have been revealed to be the scumbag RACISTS that they are. Time magazine covered an earlier study here..
Hey, if you prefer your reading material in the form of fiction, may I suggest this book…
