In todays world racism is fading away, or is it? The myth that violence video games makes us more violent is not true. How ever playing as an african-american (afrimerican) will create a negative influences of how we think of those people in society.

Each groups has been picked to play as the white character or the Afrimerican character. After 4 weeks of this experiment test subjects were to be shown pictures of Afrimerican and the group that played as the Afrimerican character has brain signals that is very similar to fear and hatred.
