OMG those medical poll stats are damn scary, as the road stats are too!!

"The majority of Americans hold some level of subconscious bias, just by growing up in this culture"!!!๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

Argghhhhh 3 strikes law too harsh for white prisoners but OK for blacks!!!

And the movies... SHOCKING, i know!!!

i fear many Australians have similar racist attitudes towards our Indigenous black citizens AND migrants/asylum seekers!!! ๐Ÿ˜

When will humanity rise above this cr*p! โ˜ฎ๏ธ โค๏ธ ๐ŸŒŸโœจ๐Ÿ’ซ

Thanx Joanne

I've read these books, but also, for me, recognizing the overall importance of being aware that they are, in context, racist videos/books. I read GwTW at age 13, and it disturbed me. I read 'Chronicles of Narnia' at age 45, and it disturbed me. I w/pass this info on as well. Some are hidden, as others are blatant, which....sadly, still continues today.

ABS: WoW! Very telling...to say the least. This also applies to 'subconscious' bias...watching the rest of the series..

This is an excellent post to bring forth the awareness we all need in learning from the past...but also, today,...in the times that we are living in.

My heart rule of saying something to someone is..."if you don't like it as the words come from your lips, others listening to you won't either. It's better to be silent, and listen." pb

Quite amazing. ย The biologically related ignorance is especially surprising, but why should it be when there are still people who think that Jews have horns, or did until quite recently.

I was surprised to see Jensen in there, he of the screed known as Jensenism, that blacks are genetically inferior!

It makes sense that Africans would have more biological diversity within their group, than non-Africans, as the original humans were Africans. Thus, it can be inferred that the genetic potential is wider within the African cohort, whereas the adaptations that created non-africans shed some of that potential behind.
It is similar, I believe, to the huge diversity of dogs that have been bred from the original wolf stock, in which situation, one is not going to be able to, now, breed back to wolves from a Pomeranian, for example.

Great job, Joanne.Very educational indeed.The hardest thing to accept is that we ALL have our prejudices which effect our way of thinking, no matter how much we fight them. But that is no excuse either, fight them we must.
