    You have to dive into the root cause for any of this to make sense.

    So Kye decided to take a novel approach. Instead of looking at small sample sizes in urban areas, he only examined data from 27,891 suburban middle-class neighborhoods using census data from 1990, 2000 and 2010. Kye figured that would eliminate a neighborhood’s socioeconomic status from the equation. After all, if whites were found to have left middle-class suburban neighborhoods when minorities moved in, it would have to be because of race, right?

    Turns out, it was about race all along.

    In the 2,352 neighborhoods that showed instances of white flight (when 100 white people or 25 percent of the white people packed up their Subarus and left), Kye found some astounding results. (And by “astounding” I mean, if Captain Obvious pointed this out, he would be demoted to sergeant, maybe even private.)

    Kye found that middle-class whites were more likely than whites in poor neighborhoods to leave a neighborhood once minorities moved in. And despite what many believe, their fear of being infected with melanin wasn’t limited to that of blacks. Kye found that Hispanics and Asians moving into mostly white suburbs produced white flight at similar levels to that resulting from black people moving into the Caucasian hoods.

    Even though gentrification is one of the favorite sports of white America, Kye’s research shows that, for some reason, colonizers don’t like their neighborhoods being colonized.

    And it has nothing to do with crime, poverty, schools or socioeconomics. They just don’t like living around people of color. The data shows it.

    If there's still an issue with simply living among one other, obviously these 'white only' preferences are going to permeate into our entertainment as well.

      Here's another recent example of whites taking issue with the race of a movie character.

      Idris Elba has been in the James Bond conversation for years, but the actor says he’s bothered by some of the racial references that pop up when he’s mentioned as the next 007.

      In fact, the Luther star finds it troubling that some people don’t think he could play the suave super spy because he’s black.

      “You just get disheartened when you get people from a generational point of view going, ‘It can’t be.’ And it really turns out to be the color of my skin,” Elba says in the August issue of Vanity Fair. “And then if I get it and it didn’t work, or it did work, would it be because of the color of my skin? That’s a difficult position to put myself into when I don’t need to.”

        I also noticed that the researcher claimed it was due to bias against African Americans.....
        Yes, according to the study the participants showed different psychological triggers when viewing different skin colored robots.

        This must be breaking news in RW medialand.

          This is idiocy. I suppose choosing a car color is somehow racist too. Cars are a machine, just like robots...





          Bigots and racists see bigotry and racism in everything. Normal people do not.

            Not really. The depiction of robots are very life like, humanoids, not true with something like a car. But, according to the people protesting the little mermaid movie, mermaids can only be white! What's the difference between having racial preference for a robot and a mermaid? There isn't any difference. So yes, I'd like to know where the racism and bias will end. Taking white bias as far as mermaids is what's idiotic, but unfortunately it's very real.

                Is Chinatown racist? How about Little Italy? I'm from Pittsburgh where we have Polish Hill. Is that racist too? Should the government or society step in to break these areas up in the sake of diversity? Lmao Try that approach in NYC!

                I appreciate diversity of other cultures, but I always fail to understand why people wanting to live amongst people of their own ethnic and cultural backgrounds is racist. That's right, I forgot... Hipsters in the Hood is gentrification - Bad, Blacks in Suburbia is diversity - Good. Humans are tribal by nature.

                    What I want to know is why Kye say white suburbs when it's Asians and Hispanics moving in but it's Caucasian hoods when black people move into white suburbs. Now THAT is racist, IMO!

                      No one said that the government should do anything. That information was only provided to put this discussion into proper context. To understand why white people want to see white robots, or white mermaids as I used as another example, you first have to understand that whites, in large, still prefer white only spaces and hold racial biases. With that context, the robots story makes more sense.

                      As the article also notes, whites move out when any non-white ethnic group starts to move in. Whether it be Hispanic, Asian or Black.

                      And please don't project.

                        There's a lot of sarcastic humor throughout the article.

                            Black people are mostly dark brown and white people pink. There are exceptions such as heavy white makeup used in China and Japan or 18th century Europe. The preference for white skin in females doesn't seem to be associated with race but class.

                            There is also a preference for white where cleanliness needs to be readily apparent. Most appliances were originally white and that may carry over into a robot that functions as an appliance.

                            You won't find many black walls but white is a popular choice. Pink and brown are also popular colors.

                            Most likely robot are more often white so they can easily be seen against dark backgrounds and because expressions are more difficult to make out in dark images. Then there is simply the fact that black is associated with dark intent as in a dark heart. None of which has anything to do with race.

                                Your constant claims that white people are biased towards white are unsupported and reveal your own racial bias...no one else's. You certainly do not speak for me, or for any of millions of other American citizens.
