Researchers from New Zealand’s University of Canterbury claim that people display different racial biases towards black robots and white robots. Apparently, people can’t help but “perceive robots with anthropomorphic features to have race,” which results in the prejudices that humans experience extending to robots. Our study revealed that participants were quicker to shoot an armed black agent than an armed white agent, and simultaneously faster to refrain from shooting an unarmed white agent than an unarmed black agent regardless of whether it was a human or robot. These findings illustrate the shooter bias towards both human and robot agents. This bias is both a clear indication of racism towards black people, as well as the automaticity of its extension to robots racialized as black.
