For the past several years, the social climate in the United States has been aggravated with a measured increase of systemic racism and, more specifically, white supremacy. News outlets and social media contend instances of discrimination, bigotry, and intolerance are growing at a substantial rate. Studies conducted by statistical bureaus, financial institutions, universities, and cultural organizations have shown a large disparity between "the white and black experience" of American life.

To better identify individual racist prejudices, Mental Discharge has collaborated with Concord Research Group to put together the CRG Racism Measurement Test. This test analyzes, scores, and rates your level of racism based on answers to questions established through cultural research and response evaluations processed by carefully developed algorithms.

The test is grouped into two sections, each with fifteen questions. Select the answer best representative of your beliefs. Once you've completed all questions, your answers will be calculated, tallied, and separated into four general categories: Direct Racism, Socio-Historical Racism, Immigrant/Foreign Racism, and Final Racism. Make sure you read each question carefully and fully understand what's being asked before answering in order to accurately determine your final scores.

Finished tests are not collected or shared with any third-parties.
