The Origins of Implicit /Unconscious bias.
AHA! The game is afoot! It’s a theory and yes we should be more accepting to one another but we do have a normal family standard! A few bad apples are no reason for the rest of us to be punished, we were getting on just fine. The motivation is MONEY, the benjamins as Omar puts it!
Implicit bias has become a key part of the national dialogue on race in America. To learn more about the history of the term, we turn to Mahzarin Banaji, one of the researchers who founded the theory.
The NPR, what a joke, but they are bringing up bias of police officers kill or be killed situations. Walk a mile in their shoes, even the residents are scared of these violent people. I can see having a town hall meeting with the police and residents to recognize one another as we are not the enemy.
Cory Booker, privileged upbringing, son of IBM executives has soft spot for drug offenders not being violent?? What?? He obviously has never been to Newark at night! I suggest Kirsten Gillibrand take a walk in those communities after dark without a team of reporters, then get back to me. There will be bias because it’s a fact that violence exists in inner cities.
Those people that make it out of the hood have a much better chance of raising their children to enjoy the American dream instead of being forced into gang life. What the president is doing is something their representative should have done all along take care of the people in their districts.
For the rest of us who don’t live there, the American citizens have a right to be angry at politicians trying to shame us. Maybe they are the ones who should hang their heads low. What we have learned through these links is that when confronted with this theory that was jammed down our throats is resentment!
Chicago is one of the most violent places in the country, black on black violence leading to death is the number one reason why single mothers go without fathers. Same goes with Baltimore! and Camden, and so on, mostly democrat run. We know these places are corrupt.
It’s more than just a hoodie and really what would a scholar know unless he went there and spent time with the people? The poor didn’t have opportunities as they were kept down by liberal policies.
In management today the term 'Unconscious Bias' (implicit bias) is now mainstream and, as an intervention, unconscious bias training continues a pace as ...
One or two good reads on implicit or unconscious bias JD!
As always follow the money! Always ask: “And what’s in it for you? Or, everything is retail or business opportunity, and in this case, I would say millions of opportunities! Doesn’t someone have to make a profit somewhere? Even if it’s during the course of educating/inculcating the masses? Unconscious Bias training is now a very profitable industry.
You’re right Kitty! It’s a billionaire dollar industry! Google and Facebook have jumped on that train as well as the progressive left candidates who run for President. They are using exclusionary tactics that equate to fear.
Unconscious Bias is still controversial as the tests or research was deemed to be flawed.
As usual, any useful or helpful dialogue is closed down, we are all it seems racists whether consciously or unconsciously.
Isn’t the idea to keep us quiet? In the “Brave New World,” we are being led or herded into being compliant and docile is essential. The most effective way to do this is to instill fear and suspicion into everyone we are now living in a fear-based society,
Anyone diverging from what is regarded as acceptable behaviour and thoughts is cut from the herd and attacked in a way that can only be described as being rabid and lacking in logic
What’s happening is all people of the skin rainbow are speaking out against this flawed theory.
We all become the “Other “
Groupthink occurs when a group of well-intentioned people make irrational or non-optimal decisions spurred by the urge to conform or the discouragement of dissent. This problematic or premature consensus may be fueled by a particular agenda or simply because group members value harmony and coherence above rational thinking. In a groupthink situation, group members refrain from expressing doubts and judgments or disagreeing with the consensus. In the interest of making a decision that furthers their group cause, members may ignore any ethical or moral consequences.
Obviously, I’m the rebel!
Is this where we are heading? Are we already in this place?
Collectivism Individualism and Western Society.
Brave New World.
A Must Read.
This link is great! It’s smartly written and snarky!
Soma puts you in a coma! Easier to handle that way. What’s the point of humanity if you’re happy all the time. Can you imagine only having one emotion? This would be a great round table video discussion!
In the year 1984, there was self-congratulatory coverage that the dystopia of the novel had not been realized. However, an expert argues that the technologies described in the novel are here and watching us.
The novel tells the story of Winston Smith, a hapless middle-aged bureaucrat who lives in Oceania, where he is governed by constant surveillance. Even though there are no laws, there is a police force, the “Thought Police,” and the constant reminders, on posters, that “Big Brother Is Watching You.”
Another Must Read.
Lots to read JD .!
It all seems very dark and dystopian, but nothing is written in stone.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing “
Attributed to Edmund Burke this very prescient quote was written by John Stuart Mill in 1867.
