The Casino Gaming Oracle will post the follow-up to "Alternative View To A Plea" after sharing this very interesting information. This interruption has occurred due to my discovery of the "Implicit Association Test" or (IAT).
The tests are the products of "Project Implicit. They described themselves on their website as : "Project Implicit is a non-profit organization and international collaborative network of researchers investigating implicit social cognition - thoughts and feelings outside of conscious awareness and control. Project Implicit is the product of a team of scientists whose research produced new ways of understanding attitudes, stereotypes and other hidden biases that influence perception, judgment, and action."
I am devoting this post to this topic because it lends it self to the issues of this blog and it further confirmed my own notions of self. Hmm? How many of you out there have asked your selves, am I biased towards people of different ethnic backgrounds? As a African American I have asked myself this question, and at times, I must admit that I have found myself having to give myself a gut check.
If asked, are you biased, I would confidently respond, No! Guess what? Now I can share with you that my IAT test on "Race" said: "Your data suggest little to no automatic preference between European American and African American." So, no one out there can accuse me of "Judge Noel L. Hillman Bashing" because he's white and I'm black. The test results further hold that I have no proclivity to prefer Magistrate Judge Karen L. Williams, because her and I share the same skin tone. [This fact was first born-out within the 5¶ of "A Guiding Hand."]
We are all aware of the Trayvon Martin case in Florida, I've discussed it within "Do Tell-Do Tell, Inform vs. Insinuate." Hence, I've surmised that this would be a good moment for us all to come to grips with any bias' we may harbor. I for one am glad that my test results suggest that I am not biased. I do detest injustice, corruption, and the lack of courage to admit that one is wrong, as exhibited by the band of judicial officers exposed by the facts and laws applicable within my civil actions before the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, and revealed on this blog.
Now I will share with you, my viewers, that Project Implicit has put together some very eye-opening tests and studies. You can go to their site and participate in their studies and test your selves and get the results from their IAT tests on, Gender, Disability, Weapons, Race, Skin-Tone, Weight, Religion, Age, Sexuality and more. Click here to go to "Project Implicit." To go straight to demonstration tests go to "Implicit Association Test" and click demonstration and follow the instructions. Share this with a friend or two or three, guess what? We will all benefit and come together as a nation.
Good Luck, and Thanks for viewing,
