A little something

The New York Times has an interesting article about bias here.

Try the gun/no gun test. Not exactly a comprehensive measure of bias but fun.

My results:

Game Over
Your Score: 500
Average reaction time:
Black Armed:649.72ms
Black Unarmed:688.8ms
White Armed:636.96ms
White Unarmed:673.52ms

So although I am slower to holster when I see an unarmed black guy, I'm much quicker to shoot the white fellas!

I hardly shot anybody, not for any reason but because by the time i had leant close enougn to the screen to work out if it was a gun or a phone i had been shot.
