    Anderson Cooper is doing a special on this, these are new studies recently conducted that show that white children have a white bias, as do black children (albeit less so).

    What does this demonstrate about race in America today?

    Video doesn't seem to want to work for me.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Didn't work for me either.
    My first guess would be nothing! Are you a racsist?

    it most likely demonstrates that children are more relaxed with familiar things...be it people's faces or whatever. If someone looks different than what the child considers "normal," he or she won't be sure it's safe right away.

    My kids grew up in Nebraska, where there was far less racial tension than down-South. They had friends of every race...and disliked people of every race. Some of the kids they really disliked happened to be black, but the conflicts came because the father of those particular black kids was from the South, and he taught his kids that whites wouldn't like them (even though their mother was white...or maybe because their mother was white.) I know this because I went to college with the mother, and she complained about it all the time.

    So while most of the kids were pretty much color-blind, that particular family had all kinds of race-based problems...because the kids expected it, searched for it, and even started it...especially with white kids, far less with Hispanic kids.

    For a lot of people, children included, it's attitude that makes the difference, not race.

    In actual dollars, President Obamaís $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. Itís no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obamaís own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    It works. It looks like CNN is laying in their own video viewer or something. I have a blazing fast connection and it took a bit to load.

    Chicago researchers. Most likely liberals. What it demonstrates to me is that they probably fit the test to meet their expectations of bias. I call shenanigans right now.

    And where was the results of the black students in that video? It was limited to just the white kids. Looks like they led us too.

    Absolutely nothing, to be perfectly honest.

    It demonstrates that all white people are born racist. Don't you keep up with the news?
    Nothing helps a bad mood like spreading it around.

    Well I can't find a way to just post the links without them automatically embedding. I think they're easier to view on the youtube page.

    Here are more from the segment:
