The study is not worth the paper it is written on.
The report used the term "biases." "Bias" means a prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair.The participants, 85 percent of whom were white, "demonstrated significantly greater threat responses against black suspects than white or Hispanic suspects," wrote James and her co-authors, University of Missouri-St. Louis criminologist David Klinger and WSU Spokane's Bryan Vila. This, they said, suggests the participants "held subconscious biases associating blacks and threats," which is consistent with previous psychological research on racial stereotypes.
Please explain to me how the constant news reports about black crime and FBI statistics about black crime result in an unfair prejudice by whites? I know blacks that have a fear of young black crime perpetrated against them. Is not that an unfair prejudice?
The reports is promoting racial stereotyping, without it they are out of a job.
