a drug that reduces racism?

Does Propranolol Reduce Racism? Probably Yes, Subconsciously.

When I did the Project Implicit test, like a large minority of white folks, I learned I have an implicit preference for black folks. I dunno if Propranolol would've eliminated that. The idea of a drug that eliminates racism may excite some people, but it worries me—humans are a combination of their opinions, good and bad, and being able to control other people's opinions is the dream of every hierarch.
