Heart Pill 'Stops People Being Racist'

Quote:
A common heart disease drug may have the unusual side-effect of combating racism, a new study claims.

Volunteers given the beta-blocker Propranolol, used to lower heart rates, scored lower on a standard psychological test of "implicit" racist attitudes.

They appeared to be less racially prejudiced at a subconscious level than another group treated with a "dummy" placebo pill.

Scientists believe the discovery can be explained by the fact that racism is fundamentally founded on fear, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Propranolol acts both on nerve circuits that govern heart rate, and the part of the brain involved in fear and emotional responses. The drug is also used to treat anxiety and panic.

Experimental psychologist Dr Sylvia Terbeck, from Oxford University, who led the study, said: "Our results offer new evidence about the processes in the brain that shape implicit racial bias.

"Implicit racial bias can occur even in people with a sincere belief in equality."

Two groups of 18 participants took part in the study which involved categorising positive and negative words, and pictures of black and white individuals, on a computer screen.

Is there anything wrong with racism?

Re: Heart Pill 'Stops People Being Racist'

I think that once again it is the ultra rich and huge drug companies trying to make a dollar.

Racism is not fear to those who live it and experience it. It is memories and experiences and no drug can suppress that. For those who have live in cities that were once white, Middle Class and turned and are now the projects. For someone who was victimized by someone of a difference race it would not work.

I am not one for medicating and think that people are stronger then they know and can overcome many things without popping a damn pill. There are good and bad to every race and most people realize that and don't need a pill to do it.

Thank you.

I wasn't raised to hate people. But street gang members have taught me to hate them, and have inadvertently awarded me a Ph.D. in hate.

No fuckin' pill is going to undo the damage that these sub-human useless eaters have done to their own race, as well as to society at large.

May they all rot in hell.
