Race - Weapons Implicit Association Test

You have completed the Race - Weapons IAT.

Your Result

Your data suggest a moderate association of Black Americans with Weapons compared to White Americans.

Thank you for your participation. Just below is a breakdown of the scores generated by others. Most respondents find it easier to associate White American with Harmless Object and Black American with Weapon compared to the reverse.

Race-Weapons score distribution
I suspected this would be the case, but I'm still disappointed.

I fell into the "little to no automatic preference between race and weapons or harmless objects.

::shrugs:: I think people's results have more to do with the order the test is put in (getting you used to Blacks on one side, Weapons on the same side, then Blacks and Weapons together, several portions of the test, before ever switching it up), than anything else.
