Does This Suit Make Me Look White?

At the beginning of last week, a Tufts University, Stanford and the University of California, Irvine study showed that race perception is not only skin deep, it can also be as shallow as the clothes on your back. When shown pictures of a racially ambiguous, computerized face in different hues, the researchers found that people were more likely to indicate that the face was Black when the figure was dressed in a janitor's uniform than when dressed in a suit.
