  • Resources for learning about implicit bias and stereotypes:

    • The Culture Inside by Invisibilia
      • “Is there a part of ourselves that we don’t acknowledge, that we don’t even have access to and that might make us ashamed if we encountered it?”
    • A Very Offensive Rom-Com by Invisibilia
      • “. . . a deeper dive into the science of sexual preferences, racial preference hierarchies and their impact, or the history and politics of Asian-American sexuality…”
    • Stereothreat by Radiolab
      • “So the real subtle power of a stereotype isn’t that it prevents you from doing a thing you want to do. It distracts you for just a beat from doing the thing you want to do and that may be all the difference.”
    • Cultural Hegemony by Philosophize This!
      • “Political control is almost always dictated by cultural control…[W]hen there is a dominant social group or a dominant class within a society…how exactly does that group ascend to power and then beyond that…how do they MAINTAIN that power once they’ve gotten it…especially when the social order that they promote WITH that position of power often times is at odds with the wellbeing of the average person?”
