DawnetteÃ¢â¬â¢s Havard-Hosted Implicit Association Test
My test firmness from the Skin-Tone Test is that I have a preference for Light scramble people rather than Dark Skin. This proved to be somewhat correct. When I was younger all I wanted was a light-skinned boyfriend. I did have legion(predicate) light-skinned guys that would be very(prenominal) bold in wanting to get to know me in my past and even in my present. I do feel that the results were somewhat valid. The reason that I put forward somewhat valid is because I do not mind what discolour the individual is on the outside. I get along with all race, creed, and tinge of people. It did make me think back to when I see a guy, who I usually go Oooh-wee over.Most of the time, the guy is usually lighter than I am. I guess I was stuck on the skin tone for so long that it is still very much a part of me. When I think about is it seems that it is just nature, because I do see many darker skinned individuals gravitating towards lighter-skinned people. I often wonder is that an insti nct in us or solely a personal preference? My opinion is that it is uncorrectable to accurately measure prejudice. Most people will not set aside on a test or even in person that they think negatively of them due to their skin color.That fact alone makes it very difficult to measure prejudices amongst people. There are two major ship canal to categorize the measurements which sociologists calculate prejudice. One is through stratification by course of study and gender. The other is through several theoretical perspectives, such as * working(a) perspectives * Conflict perspectives * Labeling theory approaches The functional perspective looks at things like dysfunction. The skirmish perspective deals with things like blaming the victim. The labeling theory approaches utilizes things like the self-fulfilling prophecy.
