REVIEW Biased Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See Think and Do

‘Jennifer Eberhardt gives us the opportunity to talk about race in n. A book for anyone who wants to know how biases are formed how they manifest and even how our brains process them There are examples even from the authors own life and studies that show how biases are used in everyday life Statistics to back up the authors assertions and experiments that prove the validity of the statistics How to counter these biases by education training in empathy for professionals 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 lacking 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

Jennifer L. Eberhardt è 6 SUMMARY

Orld we want to create’ Michelle Alexander author of The New Jim Cro. I ve recently read several books on this important topic and this is the best one so far The author tells personal anecdotes but they are pertinent to the points she is trying to illustrate from the objective research When she describes her experience working with groups like police forces she has believable tales of success She does a good job covering many issues without getting bogged down The ending was disappointing however I had hoped for evidence on what works to combat prejudices but instead she explains that no one knows because it s not in any one s financial interest to figure out that what they do doesn t work Since she is an academician who does this sort of work it seems to me she could at least evaluate the impact of her own efforts somehow
