In the 1930s and 40s, child psychologists Kenneth and Mamie Clark found that very young black children in the U.S. usually chose dolls with lighter skin colors when given a choice. The findings suggested that the children had internalized dominant prejudices against them “by the time they reached nursery school,” notes the National Museum of Play. “These studies played an important role in the NAACP’s battle in the 1950s to end segregation in public schools.” What often goes unremarked in accou...

Scientists determine ‘shooter bias’ extends to black robots

An international team of researchers recently conducted a series of experiments to determine if humans are more likely to fire a weapon at a machine that’s racialized as a black robot than one that looks white. Much like the doll experiments conducted by Kenneth and Mamie Clark in the 1940s, the researchers’ work was designed to determine if socially inherit racial bias exists in human’s perception of an object which, by its very nature, cannot actually have a race. Unfortunately, while many thi...
