EBOOK or KINDLE (Biased Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See Think and Do) ´ Jennifer L. Eberhardt
Kudos to J Eberhardt This is a book everyone should read It makes sense hits you *in your tender places and yet isn t about guilting a person into change Rather she does * your tender places and yet isn t about guilting a person into change Rather she does deft and able job of showing you where it comes from which isn t the focus so a reader doesn t spend a bunch of time feeling defensive and how to see the biases how to recognize them From there she shows chapter by chapter how persons with particular prejudices are led to particular choice making processes which in time become habit and a way of life Untangling these or not is a choice too and one that is not just a one time event but is a life long process She does an even and fair handed consideration of the major POVs I especially appreciated her academic and professional background on this topic and that the information she provides is further firmed up by her day to day work There s a passion for the work and real life experiences she brings to it that are compellingAgain I say Everyone should read this book This is the ind of 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 really connect on a personal level This is a really told to her to make the content of her work really connect on a personal level This is a really 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 Solid read if repetitive at times I read it all in one sitting It was a local book club selection and we had a lively discussion goodreads instagram twitter blog A book for anyone who wants to now 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 'Jennifer Eberhardt makes it clear that racism operates at all levels and it fills me with hope to now that she is fighting it at all levels More power to you sister The world needs you' BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH‘Poignant striking important and illuminating’ NEW YORK TIMESNo matter how fair minded we think we are we still don't treat people euallyWhy notEvery day unconscious biases affect our visual perception attention memory and behaviour in ways that are subtle and very difficult to recognise without in depth scientific studies In a single interaction they might slip by unnoticed Over thousands of interactions they become a huge and powerful forceJennifer Eber. ,

F 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 own safety Never really explained but the message clear regardless The author also takes us to the Charlottesville incident so awful so much explained but the message clear regardless The author also takes us to the Charlottesville incident so awful so much How education is lacking in discussing past history So many school children do not PostgreSQL Server Programming - Second Edition know about the Holocaust don tnow what Auschwitz was Slavery glossed over One can never forget what one never Integrity Restored: Helping Catholic Families Win the Battle Against Pornography 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 weeep making the mistake we all The Taste of Night (Signs of the Zodiac, keep making is in thinking our work is done That whatever heroic effort we ve made willeep moving us forward That whatever progress we ve seen will eep 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 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 resist structural bias as the norm I have to say that I see where the writer is goingcoming from here and I agree The idea here is that we have certain societal Biases that we carry with us and are generally unaware of I agree this is true However the writer I believe needs to stop and possibly and I now I may annoy some with what I say here as I was saying possibly needs to become aware of her own innate biasesJust a thought consider as you read the book Amazing book The writing was clear and easy to follow I usually stay away from non fiction for a variety of reasons but this one is definitely worth your time Although it s very specific towards law enforcement it was an eye opener to me As most people I have always declared I have no prejudice This book allowed me to see there are many layers of biases we all have buried in our unconscious. Hardt is a pioneering social psychologist one of the world's leading experts on unconscious bias In this landmark book she lays out how these biases affect every sector of society leading to enormous disparities from the classroom to the courtroom to the boardroomBut unconscious bias is not a sin to be condemned It's a universal human condition and as Eberhardt shows one that can – and must – be overcome'A critically important book' DAVID OLUSOGA author of Black and British‘Groundbreaking essential reading for anyone interested in how we become a just society’ BRYAN STEVENSON author of Just Mercy'Jennifer Eberhardt’s ground breaking work has the power.
