What is the difference between a bias against black cats and a bias against black people? — 1 Comment

  1. I pretty much agree and at first thought I tend to think in even simpler terms, that black is a less attractive or more sinister color than white no matter what the object, person or animal behind it is. Maybe it’s as simple and ancient as the fact that night time is dark, cold and scary while daytime is bright, warm and brings life, and over time in our way of imposing order and values on the world it just started from there. We even make it a self fulfilling prophecy, such as the American westerns portraying the bad guys in black hats and the good guys in white, angels wear white. When food goes bad or bodies rot, they turn black, and so on. We may have built up our whole philosophy on life based a lot on what colors are more acceptable than others. We obviously perpetuate it with fables, superstitions and racism. Great article, you really got me thinking.
