A study has found that men with wider, shorter faces were more likely to express racial prejudice
This facial shape has been shown to indicate higher than average testosterone levels and linked to more aggressive behavior.

The scientists stressed that the results didn't show that the men were necessarily more prejudiced - rather that they were more likely to express these beliefs if they had them.
