In the last couple of years, I've realized how serious the issue of racial bias is and how little I knew on the subject. This has led me to be more aware and conscious.
A talk on this subject by Jennifer L. Eberhardt led me to reflect on my unconscious biases. Some of the ideas given can be used by us.
How racial bias works - and how to disrupt it
Jennifer L. Eberhardt
Our brains create categories to make sense of the world, recognize patterns and make quick decisions. But this ability to categorize also exacts a heavy toll in the form of unconscious bias. In this powerful talk, psychologist Jennifer L. Eberhardt explores how our biases unfairly target Black people at all levels of society -- from schools and social media to policing and criminal justice -- and discusses how creating points of friction can help us actively interrupt and address this troubling problem.
