Those lands were rightfully part of the Byzantine Empire, an Orthodox Christian state. They had multi-faith populations, are large minority of which were Catholic Christians and clergy members that were persecuted on a routine basis. The Catholic Crusaders did have a claim to the Holy Land, in order to push back an incredibly aggressive Islamic Empire, to end the persecution of their fellow Catholics and to reclaim territory that was rightfully Christian.

You do not know the parameters of the test. You're assuming the Psychologist who set up the parameters is incompetent because it supports your view of the data. We don't know what the child was told or asked beforehand or afterwards, but I've seen multiple tests like this one that have completely acceptable parameters and samples that have the exact same result.
User avatar #123 - WakaTakaBang (09/13/2014) [-]
Both of you are making some valid points, but I think I like yours a little bit better. The children are five years old, and you're testing their views on race. A psychologist would be complicating the question if the parameters weren't set to test for one specific thing. isenseven is making a slightly presumptuous argument when he say's "Since, in most cases in the world, brighter and lighter is a symbol for good and darker is a symbol for bad, they're just going to pick the lighter one." I just don't think that holds up. Asking "Is there any way of knowing if one of these children are smarter than the others?" is testing a child's ability to rationalize something completely different than what the pictured psychologist is testing for. Telling the patient "Show me the smart child" and then subsequently asking "Why is she the smart?" leaves the question open ended and allows for a qualitative, yet controlled, response.

#127 - sytheris (09/13/2014) [-]
Indeed. I've noticed an overall trend towards explaining away things like demonstrable privilege towards a specific gender or race, despite the evidence. Not in everyone here, of course, but people generally don't like to be wrong, or "the bad guy".

Could just be my limited observations though.
User avatar #130 - WakaTakaBang (09/13/2014) [-]
No, I think you're totally correct. A lot of people just like to delude themselves and say that it's something else and couldn't possibly be racism. Which is sort of dangerous. Oh well, that's psych.
#159 - anon (09/14/2014) [-]
Just because you two are backing each other up here doesn't mean you're right... What's the sample? If it's a specific class then maybe sirformidio's suggestion has merit. Maybe the little white girl in class can already do her times tables, and knows the alphabet backwards.

Maybe this child has ingrained beliefs, gathered from a culture that believes itself heavily discriminated against. It is a fairly common view in some social sphere's and that's undeniable.

Furthermore, saying "which of these kids is the smartest implies that one of them is the smartest. Without the leading question, how is it fair to say the child truly believed that themselves? There's lots of evidence that children centre their answers around what they expect the listener wants to hear, here, that one of the options is correct. "Because she's white" is hardly descriptive. It doesn't answer why the child prescribes to that belief.

Shit, kids at that age can barely differentiate between sex!
User avatar #212 - WakaTakaBang (09/14/2014) [-]
I also wanted to add that a psychologist would most likely note the presence of a Caucasian in the class and change the study group accordingly. Assuming this actually was a class being tested in the first place- and the psychologist had no hidden agenda.
User avatar #211 - WakaTakaBang (09/14/2014) [-]
I understand where you're coming from with that argument. Sure, kids can't conceptualize gender at that age, but that would be a different question altogether. What this is most likely testing for is a particular view of race at an early age. If I'm allowed to be just as presumptuous, I'm going to say that this study was done on a larger scale- more than one child.

You also state that the child possibly has "ingrained beliefs, gathered from a culture that believes itself heavily discriminated against." That's not so much a counterpoint as it is an accord with my views on the study. The girl has a preconceived notion that she is lesser due to stereotypes. You also go on to say, "There's lots of evidence that children center their answers around what they expect the listener wants to hear, here, that one of the options is correct." If that's the case, than this child already understands societies views on lighter skinned people.

I already talked about the leading question- it defines the parameters of the test. Without it, the child could choose to opt out. Instead, she took an "educated" guess and went with the answer she felt was most accurate. We're backing each other up because we believe we're correct, but you're welcome to have your own opinion.

If you pretext the question with a statement like: "One of these kids is smarter than the others." then you are defining the situation. This is a testable condition, and as such, can be used as a defining statement.

Then, if you ask the child. "Which of these kids is the smartest?" they are simply reacting to a factual observation of a group. How they determine the answer is then based upon their biases and conceptions. Many will, in fact, say I don't know as an answer.

Fuck, they're probably like "Well shit there's this one girl who knows like, 50 more words than I do and is soooo good at adding and she's white so that must be the answer."

you're assuming a lot about the child's understanding. Tests have shown children at various ages to have different levels of cognitive understanding at different times. "The kid doesn't know any better." is both unknowable based on this clip and a presumption on your part.
User avatar #30 - sirformidio (09/13/2014) [-]
Sure it's presumptious, but it's fairly fucking accurate when you see a five year old posed with the question "Which of these kids is smarter than the others", which implies a definitive answer, when the kid may or may not even be able to properly identify colours yet.
the test is biased and flawed fundamentally. It exists purely to gather 'evidence' that's about as stable as the geopolitical quagmire that is the middle east.

all religions are quintessentially made up-but it would also be fair to say that everything culture based (religion, language, arts, etc) is also "made up."


THATS NOT THE POINT.

it dosnt matter if something is made up what matters is the ideas and facts/theology behind it. A theory is only as strong as its evidence a religion is only as strong as its historical, cultural, and social elements.
