Like the police where they are daily confronted with situations that could prove deadlyI was raised in Chicago and was well aware of much that was written within There were places we were told to stay far away from for our own safety Never really explained but the message was clear regardless The author also takes us to the Charlottesville incident so awful so much hatred How education is acking in discussing past history So many school children do not know about the Holocaust don t know what Auschwitz was Slavery glossed over One can never forget what one never knew To me this is a shameful admissionOur experiences in the world seep into our brain over time and without our awareness they conspire to reshape the workings of our mindThe mistake we keep making the mistake we all keep making is in thinking our work is done That whatever heroic effort we ve made will keep moving us forward That whatever progress we ve seen will keep us from sliding back to burn crosses and hiding Torah scrollsIn truth bias has been biding it s time in an implicit world in a place where we need not acknowledge it to ourselves or to others even as it touches our soul and drives our behavior Solid read if repetitive at times I read it all in one sitting It was a Building Ideas: An Architectural Guide to the University of Chicago local book club selection and we had aively discussion goodreads instagram twitter blog This is the kind of informative nonfiction that I Canadian Art, Volume 1 (A-F): Canadian Art: Volume I (A-F) like to see clearly written incorporating broad statistics and study findings with concrete examples correlating arguments to current or historical events and the author s use of personal anecdotes or stories told to her to make the content of her work really connect on a personalevel This is a really well executed book on implicit bias that threads the needle between acknowledging that implicit bias is something that we all inherit are therefore not personally to blame for the problem s origin while still pushing individuals to do their part to change themselves the world around them A few of the stories really stuck with me particularly the arc of her own son s understanding of his own perceptions of black men how he is increasingly at the receiving end of those perceptions from others as a young black man Would definitely recommend I could see this working well for a book club type environment Kudos to J Eberhardt This is a book everyone should re. is a pioneering social psychologist one is book everyone should re.
