Implicit Bias (41 minute talk)
by Charles Blow – New York times Op-Ed columnist
Mr. Blow starts off his address by describing a white woman who lectures on race and diversity, delivering a talk to an all-white audience. She poses the question: “Raise your hand if you would trade places with black people in America and how they are currently treated in this country.” Mr. Blow then provides his perspective on how can we better understand race and inequality. Mr. Blow’s discussion centers on events and experiences in the U.S., with some global examples. He draws on insights from such historical developments as the establishment of land-grant universities and the development of police departments.
