My goodness, this is a serious conclusion?

A recently published study funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation claims to show that black pedestrians face racial discrimination at crosswalks.

The study, “Racial bias in driver yielding behavior at crosswalks,” was published in Transportation Research Part F: Traffic Psychology and Behaviour. It was conducted by professors Kimberly Barsamian Kahn and Arlie Adkins of Portland State University and University of Arizona, respectively, and PhD student Tara Goddard of Portland State.
