When White Obscures Evaluations: the Influence of Automatic Color Preferences on Product, Race and Spokesperson Evaluations
Two IAT studies show that African and Caucasian-Americans have automatic preferences for the color white (vs. black), which influence automatic product, racial and advertising evaluations. Automatic preferences for white strengthen (attenuate) automatic in-group preferences among Caucasian-Americans (African-Americans), such that once color preference is removed both groups exhibit comparable in-group favoritism.
