I just found out we are a 'conservative' science site, ostensibly because we don't have an ideological litmus test for writers. This was third hand from the blog in the link so I don't know how literal we can take it. It seems odd to me that unless you are overtly left, and your writers are overtly anti-religious across the board, you must be 'conservative.' We'll let anyone write here and other places will not. If that makes us conservative, I am okay with it.

When white Americans were asked in a new study to pick a dollar amount they would have to be paid to live the rest of their lives as a black person, most requested less than $10,000. A minor thing.

In contrast, study participants said they would have to be paid about $1 million to give up television for the rest of their lives.

This would seem to state that white people don't think being black is such a big deal in 2007. Not the case at all, says Philip Mazzocco, co-author of a new study study and assistant professor of psychology at Ohio State University's Mansfield campus. Instead, he says the results suggest most white Americans don't truly comprehend the persisting racial disparities in our country.
