Unconscious Bias: Are you Biased, and May NOT know it?

So many thoughts have been splashing about in my mind over the last few weeks. I don’t even know where to start.

Whether it’s the arrest of two black men at Starbucks while waiting; the arrest of a black woman at a Waffle House in Alabama while ordering; the situation with two black men at LA Fitness while working out; the embarrassment to 5 black women while playing golf at a Pennsylvania golf course or the show of force by the police, responding to a call about 3 black women who were leaving a house they rented through Airbnb in California - my head is spinning!

I had no idea that what I saw as a routine discussion would have resulted in so much controversy. The host started the segment by playing a tape in which a prominent sportscaster set out to systematically denounce the discipline of Psychology and Sports Psychology in particular. Naturally, it was hard for me to believe that this level of ignorance still existed in 2005.
