It may be easy to point out racism in others, but recognizing our own blind spots is often much trickier. Uncovering and understanding our implicit bias (or “hidden” bias) is critical in becoming a champion for racial equality.
Researchers at Harvard University created a test designed to do just this, called the IAT (Implicit Association Test). It runs you through a series of exercises, and then gives you a report identifying unconscious racial biases you may carry. It takes about 10 minutes to complete, so we encourage you to use your 100 seconds to either start it, or to plan a time today to take it.
