    As I thought. Although I do not recommend doing this test late at night...

    Time is important because it detects whether you've thought about the answer or not.
    I think the test works in that you may find it harder or easier to allocate words of either group to either race. To make it a fair test they switched things around to see maybe one of your hands works faster than the other or you just don't know. But I wouldn't know :/

    Biased 'racial bias test' Your responses depend on how quickly you can press button E and I.

    I was pressing the buttons randomly and...

    Given that familiarity implies security, and my Cotswold milieu is among the most traditionally white communities in the country, I suppose the above might bear out notwithstanding my lack of conscious preference. Even so, I'm somewhat surprised.

    You've quoted the wrong thing. Those are just the results of everyone who's completed the test so far... The only thing you need to pay attention to is the text written in big green letters near the top of the page.

    The fact that you are scared about that worries me slightly. Racial pride is racism. It's as simple as that. If you feel like you living with other white people makes you dislike non-white people and that that is a bad thing because you are not white then you are racist.
    I'm not a racist. I genuinely expected my results to have a strong preference for European Americans due to my circumstances. But perhaps I got what I got because my family is black - I wouldn't hold resentment against my own people would I? I think it may even be normal to have a slight pretence for their own race. Besides, I had a slight preference. If it was strong, I might be concerned.

    Your data suggest a strong automatic preference for European American compared to African American.The table below shows the percentage of other online test takers receiving various test results, so you can compare yourself with other people. Your results have been corrected for the order in which you performed the dual category associations.

    Not sure how credible the result is. In general I find things like this difficult where you get used to a routine and it suddenly switches.

    What a ignorant thing to say. Racism, alongside sexism and classism, is an -ism, and therefore an ideology (unless you think they're religious practices), and ideologies cannot be structures or systems.
    Ironically it was actually quite an educated thing to say
