Notice that for multiracial participants, this average discrepancy overlaps with zero, which indicates a lack of bias. To get at this, we asked participants questions about how many interracial couples they knew and how much time they spent with them. It seems almost too obvious a question, but I have to ask: Yet our findings indicate that most in the U. We found that overall, white and black participants from across the U. Finally, we examined whether just being exposed to interracial couples — such as seeing them around in your community — would be associated with more positive attitudes toward interracial couples. In the explicit bias test, black and white participants expressed a significant level of discomfort with interracial relationships.
We found that across all three racial groups, more interpersonal contact with interracial couples meant more positive implicit and explicit attitudes toward interracial couples.

Despite her tendency to shoot in the golden time of day she calls the twilight hour, the images are haunting. What does each race think?
