Does Rock music make you racist?

TUESDAY 3/6/12- Just a few minutes of listening to mainstream rock music such as Bruce Springsteen and the White Stripes is enough to make white students focus on the interests of other whites at the expense of back people and latinos, according to a dubious university research project, which went on to claim that white students who listened to Top 40 pop - made by artists such as Gwen Stefani and Akon - were fairer towards other ethnic groups. The researchers, who tested 138 students with different genres, say the finding shows that because rock is associated with white people, people unconsciously favour their own race after listening. After listening to Bruce Springsteen and the White Stripes, the students handed most of the money to white people.

"Rock music is generally associated with white Americans, so we believe it cues white listeners to think about their positive association with their own in-group,"said Heather LaMarre, an assistant professor of journalism and mass communication at the University of Minnesota. The conclusions of this study are being challenged because the sample size and testing methodology are highly questionable.
