Daily Mail (UK). Study reveals on-line racism

The Daily Mail (UK) reported the results of a study in the Economic Journal of the Royal Economic Society. The study compared online offers for an Apple IPod using a black hand, a white hand and a white hand with a tattoo.

The Daily Mail story is here: How on line shopping reveals we are racist.

The image with a black hand received less offers and at a lower price.

The study is called "The Visible Hand: Race and Online Market Outcomes" and is featured at the Royal Economic Society.
