What was your experience like completing the Implicit Association Tests? Did you feel stressed? Anxious? What were your thoughts while reading your results? Were you surprised? Upset? Or, were your results what you expected? This reflection is a significant opportunity to share with other participants.
Here are my IAT results:
Your responses suggested a strong automatic preference for Light Skinned People over Dark Skinned People.
Your responses suggested a strong automatic preference for European Americans over African Americans.
slight automatic association for American with Native American and Foreign with White American.
Your responses suggested little or no automatic association between American and Foreign with Asian American and European American.
After Module 1, I am not surprised by my results for the Skin-tone and Race IAT. How could I not have implicit bias with all that I was unconsciously taught through school, TV shows, media, etc.
It is cringeworthy to be shown that I think this way. But, at this point all I can do is try and be aware of my implicit bias, and do my best to rewire my thoughts.
