Would you like to check your unconscious attitudes towards blacks and whites in a confrontation situation where there is a gun involved?  Check out the following test to measure your personal attitude.  . . Joshua Correll at University of Chicago has created an on-line test called “the police officer’s dilemma,” in which you encounter 100 pictures of black and white men, some armed and some unarmed. The idea is to shoot those who are armed and holster your gun when you see someone unarmed “” and the program measures how fast you do these things. Try it .  Who are you most likely to shoot”¦.a black guy or a white guy?
