    Americans draw racist conclusions about people they’ve never met just by learning their names, according to researchers who were “disgusted” by their own findings.

    The study, published in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior, asked subjects to describe their feelings about imaginary characters with stereotypical white names, such as Connor and Wyatt, and stereotypical black names, such as Jamal and DeShawn.

    “I’ve never been so disgusted with my own data,” said lead author Colin Holbrook, an anthropologist at UCLA.

    Test subjects were read a short story about a man — with either a stereotypical white name or black name — being bumped at a bar, and then verbally berated.

    Test subjects were then asked to describe what they imagined that man to look like and what he did in response to that contact and verbal assault.

    “A character with a black-sounding name was assumed to be physically larger, more prone to aggression, and lower in status than a character with a white-sounding name,” said Holbrook.

    The researchers performed similar comparisons with Latino and East Asian names, with participants saying members of the former group were larger, more violent, and lower in socioeconomic status.

    In a related story, white people were inclined to believe that tigers can be dangerous and you should not poke them with sticks.

    The important lesson to be learned here is:

    Parents of black children, DO NOT give your kid some bullshit, made up name because you, who have never been to Africa and speak no African languages, think it sounds African.

    And white patents, stop fucking with the spelling of normal names. Kenadie is not cute. It's retarded.

    Someone named LaQuisha is on the phone. I don't know what she wants, but I suspect it might have to do with grape soda.

    “A character with a black-sounding name was assumed to be physically larger."

    I don't think this is racist or stereotyping.
    Mandingo, Lexington Steele, Tyler Knight. These men are all physically larger than most.

    "Researchers also found that the people with "white" sounding names were perceived as more likely to have their kid on a leash and their dog in a stroller"
