Four Resources for Teaching About Implicit Bias

“The struggle for civil rights has yielded major gains over the years. But racism, sexism, Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of prejudice still persist — often rooted in deeply ingrained social attitudes we’re not even aware of.
While some people are fully conscious of their biases toward others, and are explicit in their expressions of prejudice, a fascinating and growing body of research now shows that it’s far more common for people to harbor unconscious — or implicit — biases toward certain groups of people.
According to the research, even people who believe they’re completely free of prejudice often carry around some form of implicit bias that shapes how they see, understand, and treat others.”
