This could be interesting...

https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/takeatest.html

there's various tests you can do on there to find out whether you have an "automatic preference" (i.e. subconscious) for a particular group. I did the Fat/Thin test and the Black/White test.

Turns out I have a strong preference for thin people and a slight preference for black people. I'm a thin white person. So I can conclude that I am fatist (sorry) but not racist.

Anyone else fancy revealing their inner racist?

Enter the intellectual, argumentative, the bullies, nitpickers

actually I'm astonished no-body has started an 'uglyist' thread, recalling one SF poster asking 'why are people in Sheffield so ugly?'

tbh I'm neither fat nor thin, leaning more to slightly overweight, as for being racist - it's against my moral code.

Apologies all round if anyone asks for 'evidence' which won't be given

yes it seems no one is willing to present any evidence. I was bit nervous doing the black/white one in case I was harbouring some latent racism, thankfully not.
