Subject to the Same Prejudice?

A UCLA study finds that African Americans and Caucasians viewing African American faces display extremely similar changes in the activity of brain structures that respond to emotional events, a UCLA study finds.

Go figure. We watch the same newscasts every night. Is it any surprise that when we think of the boogey man, we see the same thing?

Are you surprised?

It doesn't surprise me...I think in mainstream psychology they have got a concept known as "identifying with the agressor" which may be what is happening in this situation. ie black people are identifying with white people and having the same kinds of reactions with black people that white people's very depressing - I hope that's not the case with all black people.
