The Journal of Experimental Social Psychology found that “Black” people are viewed more negatively than “African-Americans” because of a perceived difference in socioeconomic status. As a result, “Black” people are thought of as less competent and as having colder personalities. The study’s most striking findings shed light on the racial biases undergirding the professional world. Even seemingly innocuous details on a resume, it appears, can tap into recruiters’ biases. A job application might mention professional affiliations with organizations like the Wisconsin Association of African-American Lawyers or the National Black Employees Association, the names of which apparently have consequences — and are also beyond their members’ control.
