Project Implicit is a group of assessments in which a person is given choices to compare from about a person’s race, sex, identity, religious or other possible biases. This social psychology assessment basically tries to combine a mental strength of a person’s thoughts with pictures they may see of a person who may fit that profile in order to establish how much of a bias exists. For instance; with the sex test, you would be expected to see pictures of females and males, for race, one race versus another or more.
Many times animals need good homes. They are often brought into a home where a person wants to take good care of them, feed them, water them and make sure their every need is taken care of.

These unfortunate few do not mean to harm these animals, and actually mean to help the pets they so lovingly bring into their homes–matter of fact, they normally know them by their names or by the dates the brought them in or where they found them or what shelter they got them from.
