Study: Facial Structure Can Indicate Racism

Men with shorter, wider faces are the ones more likely to spout racist beliefs.

The report, due out in the journal Psychological Science next month, found that facial structure can be a result of testosterone levels, which are also connected to aggressive behavior and the need to appear dominant in social situations.

Men with greater facial width-to-height ratio (fWHR) – that is, men with wider cheekbones and shorter distances between the brow and the upper lip – had stronger dominant urges, cared less about what people thought of them and were more likely to express racist or prejudiced beliefs, the report found.
