Study suggests relationship between referee calls, race

+
"As society we've made huge strides in removing forms of explicit discrimination, but we might still have the lingering effects of implicit discrimination," Price said. "I might not think of myself as explicitly racist, but I still might be influenced by particular stereotypes that I'm not even aware of." (...) The paper initially got attention when it was completed in 2007. It was published only last week because it finally completed the gauntlet of peer reviews. Back in 2007, the NBA responded to the study with their own follow-up study, which denied any evidence of bias. "That's completely the wrong approach," Price said. "(They should say) 'We didn't realize this is happening, let's look into this.'" In fact, after the NBA's independent report came out, Price said they evaluated it and wrote a response, currently under review, about how the NBA's study can be used to support their original findings. --- This is more of a topic of intrigue than a firestarter. I'm sure it won't be interpreted that way, however. (I tried to water down that title so it wouldn't suggest the wrong thing, like the linked article and the RealGM blurb do)
