So now somebody has allegedly developed a test for bigotry.  They say it
proves the white people are bigots because they saw pictures of black
people and the machine detected activity in the part of their brain that
handles thoughts and behavior.

Maybe these people are reacting to what they've seen on tv.  How many times
have you seen America's most wanted and seen them profile a black
criminal?  How many times have you been channel surfing, gone past MTV and
seen a rap video featuring a black rapper going on about shooting
people?  My point is that people react to that.
