The Obama effect

The psychologists are on it.  Wonder when they are going to develop the Post-Racial Scale.

As a slightly-related aside, I’m always validated to see that research backs up what I’ve known for years:

One of her recent studies, for instance, found that in severe emergency situations, whites were slower to help blacks than other whites.

I was thinking about this recently because of an offer of assistance from an Asian guy. And it occurred to me that previously when I’ve had a car breakdown, it’s always been black guys who have stopped.
