Rock Music Makes White People Extra-Racist

“Just a few minutes of listening to mainstream rock music such as Bruce Springsteen and the White Stripes is enough to make white students focus on the interests of other whites at the expense of back people and latinos. White students who listened to Top 40 pop — made by artists such as Gwen Stefani and Akon — were fairer towards other ethnic groups. The researchers, who tested 138 students with different genres, say the finding shows that because rock is associated with white people, people unconsciously favour their own race after listening.”
