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 aised 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 6 Verses That Can Change Your Life really explained but the message was clearegardless 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 not know about the holocaust don t not know about the Holocaust t 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 eshape the workings of our MindThe Mistake We Keep mistake we keep 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.

aware With knowledge we can move forward and make better decisions in all situations Thanks so much to the publishers for my free copy of this book and to Goodreads for facilitating the giveaway Some nonfiction presents new Ideas and some nonfiction is well written and this book has both traits Eberhardt whose work I was unaware until I heard her interviewed on a youtube channel is a cognitive scientist whose esearch area is implicit biases that we carry with us I had heard of other studies of implicit bias but Eberhardt s gift is taking this factoid that many stored away in our science trivia collection and shows its salience in eality and why it is much than a factoid but a lense to look at everything in our society from police profiling and arrests to education to workplace matters So many vital areas where pretending we are colorblind makes the problems worse She uses down to Earth. Ties Further Ties further the problem In Biased Eberhardt eveals how even when we are not aware of bias and genuinely wish to treat all people eually ingrained stereotypes can infect our visual perception attention memory and behaviorEberhardt's extensive work as a consultant to law enforcement as well as a esearcher with unprecedented access to data including footage from police officers' body worn cameras informs every aspect of her book and makes it much than a work of social psychology Her esearch occurs not just in the laboratory but in police departments courtrooms prisons boardrooms and on the street Int. And charged examples to get her point across that our implicit biases matter and even with good intentions our unconscious biases are a source of much harm and draws the direct lines from the studies to eal world incidents to illustrate her points Even if you keep up on brain this is the kind up on brain This is the kind informative nonfiction that I 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 eally connect on a personal level This is a eally well work eally connect on a personal level This is a eally well 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 eally 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 eceiving end of those perceptions from others as a young black man Would defi It is alarming how much of our biases are subconsciously ingrained in us not only from birth but from our culture as well While not exactly groundbreaking this book has a lot of heart and helps lay out the facts and statisticsI hope by becoming aware of ingrained biases we all can push to esist structural bias as the norm. Erviews are interwoven with memories and stories from Eberhardt's own life and family She offers practical suggestions for eform and takes the eader behind the scenes to police departments implementing her suggestions Refusing to shy away from the tragic conseuences of prejudice Eberhardt addresses how acial bias is not the fault of nor estricted to a few bad apples in police departments or other institutions We can see evidence of bias at all levels of society in media education and business practices In Biased Eberhardt eminds us that acial bias is a human problem one all people can play a ole in solvi. ,
