The Psychology and Effects of Implicit Bias

Map by counties: lighter blues indidate less pro-White bias

On The Point, we talk about implicit social cognition: thoughts and feelings outside of conscious awareness and control. 

Our host Mindy Todd is joined by Dr. Marc Whaley, psychiatrist, Dr. Jonathan Schwartz, psychiatrist, and Ann Geagon, social worker. Here’s a link to Project Implicit, a non-profit organization and international collaboration between researchers with the goal to educate the public about hidden biases and to provide a “virtual laboratory” for collecting data on the Internet.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
