SORT BY Relevancy
According to a study conducted by researchers at the University of Iowa, racial stereotypes affect black boys as young as five years old.
White participants in the study were more likely to view a toy as a weapon if it was associated with black boys, reports The Daily Mail. Those who participated in the study were less likely to view a toy as a weapon if it were associated with a white boy.
Seeing the face of a black boy was enough for the white students in the study to misidentify the toy as a weapon.
Lead researcher, Dr. Andrew Todd, said this study shows how people who don’t view themselves as racist can still react with unconscious bias.
“Our findings suggest that, although young children are typically viewed as harmless and innocent, seeing faces of five-year-old Black boys appears to trigger thoughts of guns and violence,” Dr Todd said.
“One of the most pernicious stereotypes of Black Americans, particularly black men, is that they are hostile and violent,” he explained.
“So pervasive are these threat-related associations that they can shape even low-level aspects of social cognition.”
The white college students were shown images of black five-year-olds and white five-year-olds. Then they were shown a second image which they were told to identify as quickly as possible. Participants recognized guns quicker after seeing images of black boys. They were also quicker to mistake toys for guns after viewing images of black boys.
Today’s discussion will be about all the protective benefits that LegalShield has to offer; especially their IDShield Plan for Identity Protection.

Do You Communicate With The Animals You Know? We once adopted Alice, a beautiful Maine Coon cat who had grown up in one place, but got booted out at the age of 12, because one of the children in the home became deathly allergic. After sequestering Alice for three weeks, we gradually allowed her access to the out of doors. She promptly ran away. I called her previous owner to come help me hunt for her. As we were searching our neighborhood, I asked her: “Did you explain to Alice why she was leaving your house and coming to live with us?” She looked at me blankly for a moment, then replied: “I DO talk to my animals, but not usually in paragraphs!” MJ Domet shares more about “listening” when we discuss “Voiceless Whispers” this Thursday. And BTW, Alice came back to us, living happily for another 8 years. Before she settled down, however, her previous human spoke to her in paragraphs and told her why the change was being made!
“The purity of a person’s heart can be quickly measured by how they regard animals”, MJ Domet challenges us all to examine our connection with animals and nature. Animals, she says, are companions, messengers, teachers and connectors. Sharing stories of animal encounters, MJ Domet empowers you to hear your own Voiceless Whispers.

I am going to be dealing with a subject that is so personal and so private that those who have it don't like to talk about it.
Genesis 6:14 Now it happened, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the [a]sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful anddesirable; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose and desired. 3 Then theLord said, “My Spirit shall not strive and remain with man forever, because he is indeed flesh [sinful, corrupt—given over to sensual appetites]; nevertheless his days shall yet be [b]a hundred and twenty years.” 4 There were Nephilim (men of stature, notorious men) on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God lived with the daughters of men, and they gave birth to their children. These were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown (great reputation,
