Pure Science

Bernstein, absorbed in the action on the monitor, was only dimly aware of the screaming. He continued. "So, you see the nature of the experiment, Mrs. Peters. Now that the room has been set ablaze, an African-American gentleman has been presented to lead your daughter to safety. However, you have taught her from an early age to hate and fear non-whites. We will now determine if her innate survival instinct is strong enough to overcome her racist socialization."

And when Mrs. Peters' shrieks morphed into howls of horror and despair, Bernstein only remarked, "Impressive, Mrs. Peters. You taught her well."
