Comments: Study Finds 9-Month-Old Babies Are Racist
Just because racists are infantile, it doesn't follow that infants are racist.

It's only Monday and already I've seen the words "racist babies". Can we declare this week over already?
Even ignoring the small sample size, a difference of 59.2% vs 52.3% seems a rather subtle basis for any actual conclusions. Props for using numbers with decimal points, that always adds authority.
I did like the part about electrodes, though.

I once found myself in a group of black women and their wee babies. I was holding my wee baby, waiting for the bathroom. I was the only white woman in line. The little black wee bairns were shocked to see a white woman, and my Squalling Ball of baby fat was likewise alarmed. We mothers got a big kick out of seeing their reactions, which can only be described as, "What fresh Hell is this?"
