The nature of a person who is prone to risk is usually judged by the color of his skin.



Experiments by James Wayges and colleagues show differences in the assessment of risk-taking behavior between white and dark-skinned people. It turned out that people who take responsible risks are judged by others in accordance with stereotypes about people with fair skin, and those who seek reckless risks – in accordance with stereotypes about black people. All research data are published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

According to Sylvia Perry, associate professor of psychology at Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences and a fellow at Northwestern University’s Institute for Policy Studies, people find that blacks are less likely to take risks because they are less likely to take risks for that person or with more likely to expect from him an impulsive decision that will lead to a negative outcome.
