Wow! This is really cool, thanks for sharing this! Your experiment proves what I have always believed to be true--appearance, more specifically what you are wearing matters, a lot! As an young African-American male adult I can say I am all too familiar with stereotyping, and racial profiling and have definitely observed a difference in the way I have been treated depending on what I am wearing--especially in stores. I am so curious to know if there would have been a difference if you had another person play your role who was a woman or man of color under the same circumstance. I am inclined to believe that there wouldn't be much of a difference in responses (leaning more towards the non-responsive side). Also, I am curious to how the responders were typically dressed.
