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.
