 In simulation, people are much
 quicker to shoot black men.
 Researchers created an online
 game where the player is a cop
 with the goal of "shooting"
 pictures of men holding a gun.
 Players of all races routinely
 shot black men more quickly,
 and were more likely to shoot
 an unarmed black man on accident.
