A snapshot of racial bias in Europe

Courtesy of Mindhacks…a new map that shows racial bias throughout Europe as determined by Implicit Association Testing (IAT). 

In this map, the red countries show higher levels of bias against black faces, the bluer countries show lower levels of bias.  A key takeaway is that no country is near zero, meaning that residents of all countries in Europe show some degree of racial bias.

Something similar was done to illustrate racial bias in different states across the US.

(A significant caveat is that this is a self-selected sample consisting of people who have chosen to visit Harvard’s Project Implicit website and take an IAT.)
