Look in the Mirror and Face Our Ugly Implicit Bias

  • Week of August 20, 2017

All-of-us don’t find it hard to condemn the white supremacists and Nazis who descended upon Charlottesville. What is more difficult is owning and addressing the implicit bias and prejudices that we all have. Charlottesville woke us up (again), it’s on all-of-us to #staywoke.

Here’s how:

  1. Read this article, and this one to learn about implicit basis and racism.
  2. Watch this video (part of a series on bias) from the NYT to understand how we all have bias, how it is different than racism, and how it might contribute to racism.
  3. Take the Harvard Race Implicit Bias Test.
