More Unsurprising Studies

CNN: You may be more racist than you think. A new study out of York University indicates that non-Black persons are liable to seriously over-estimate the degree to which they are disturbed by racist behavior. When one group was asked how they would react to a described racist incident, most people claimed they would be very upset. But when another group was actually exposed to the racist act, they generally were not particularly distressed at all.

So CNN is conflating racial bias with "disturbedness"?
