“In the American imagination it’s easier to start off white and become black than it is to start off black and become white”

An interesting study reveals clear inequality of American race perceptions.

When subjects started with an image of a white and began morphing it to an African American, on average they identified the image as appearing black 40 percent of the way through the process. But when done the opposite way, from black to white, subjects did not identify subjects as appearing white until they were almost 70 percent of the way through the process.

I believe this kind of research is very insightful to understanding American fears about “deep fakes“.
