The IAT was very difficult because I am not good at dexterity focused texts, so as I was taking it I started getting frustrated and ended up needing a bit more time to recenter my brain in order to move onto the next section. There were a couple of times even mid-test that I could not get my brain to refocus after getting a couple of wrong answers and ended up taking more to complete the section I was on.
I was not afraid of anxious about the results, and I did receive results that matched closely with my perception/awareness of my own biases. As an example: considering I grew up in Brazil - a country known for its racist and colorist ways of being, I know that I had always been given messaging that made me prefer light-skinned over dark-skinned peoples. These messages would show up in the media through the portrayal of dark-skinned Brazilians living in favelas and reporting larger rates of crimes in those communities, less representation in movie and television (aside from criminal/villain roles), and how few black students went to my school (I went to a private school on scholarship). So I was not surprised when I got a moderate preference in the skin tone IAT as that is a bias that I have been working on unlearning for a long time.
I think the experiment taught those students a valuable lesson on how oppression may feel like (although in a really small scale) in a fairly controlled environment. This video also reinforces the notion that racism is taught and can be unlearned. I also noticed in this video how easily shifts can happen regarding oppression - those classmates were all friends and happy at the beginning but when given permission to feel superior to others, they changed how their perception of others and started to them differently based on their eye color almost instantly.
