Implicit Association Test

Do you wonder if you have any racial biases? This short test may give you surprising results in whether you have implicit preference towards white or black people based on how quickly you sort good/bad words and photos of white and black faces. This test can be used to help measure whether implicit bias decreases after diversity training or self-education on anti-racism.
