Tim Wise: Unconscious Bias and the Age of Obama

In this clip from Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity, author and speaker, Tim Wise examines the complexities of unconscious bias in the current “age of Obama.”  In this clip Tim also mentions Project Implicit, a test created by researchers at Harvard and other universities to test implicit association.  Visit Project Implicit.  Click “Demonstration.” In the list of demonstration tests look for “Race IAT.”

Dr. Shakti Butler, film producer and director says, “In this clip Tim talks about the pervasive role of unconscious bias in maintaining the system.  By acknowledging the impact of unconscious bias we can begin making strides towards healing.”
