    I can't be bothered doing the test. But my thoughts of Blacks:

    Black females tend to have higher oestrogen and so have more sexually dimorphic bodies (larger breasts and wider hips). If that is coupled with an attractive face, then I definitely find Black girls attractive.

    As for Black males... I haven't really been exposed to many, to be honest. From the ones I have, they seem to be very low-inhibition, loud and lack the ability to react proportionally to situations. I suspect it is due to Black males having higher testosterone levels on average... as well as coming from backgrounds where it is important to be assertive/dominant. My sample size of black males if about five... but it is a common observation nonetheless.

    Turns out I really love white people... I'm only 6% in preference of black people... although having never had a friend who is black (I live in an area with not much multiculturalism) I've never had the chance to make positive or negative associations...
    Am I a bad person for my score? D:

    Your data suggest a slight automatic preference for African American compared to European American.

    I'm Black British, but I think the results make sense. I was scared I'd get a slight preference for White Americans since I've lived in a white area my whole life.

    This makes me sad, bc I was raised by a fairly racist family, and even though I fight for racial equality I still clearly have an ingrained preference. Grrrr.

    I'm not racist, I feel I got used to the switch of black and white on either side but I didn't get used to the good and bad staying on the same side if that makes sense xD

    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.

    Do you think your results are something to be concerned about?

    You shouldn't call people "black" as it might be considered demeaning, you should use the term "African American"

    There were too many errors made to determine a result.

    I'll try this again tomorrow morning, I think I'm too tired and frustrated to be able to do it properly atm.
