Default Re: News Miscellany

I've an aversion to making new threads, (You can probably tell by the way I spam the shit out of this one.) and this might actually merit one. So if someone has an editorial they want to share on this, really, no butthurt here if they want to make a new thread.

Deconstructing America's unconscious racial bias - CBS News

My fave parts:
Quote:
In his test, subjects are shown a picture of a black or white male carrying either a gun or a harmless object, and must make a quick decision to shoot or not shoot.
Quote:
He told CBS News that he has tested the strategy of training subjects to not automatically look at a person’s face. “We found that it’s effective in reducing bias in shooting.”

In the lab, focusing on the object rather than the race reduces the mistaken shooting of unarmed blacks by as much as 45 percent.
