Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do By Jennifer L. Eberhardt
This book carefully explains that coaching anyone requires creating a connection. In race relations, the coaching process is complicated by our biases. Eberhardt says, “implicit bias is not a new way of calling someone a racist. In fact, you don’t have to be a racist at all to be influenced by it. Implicit bias is a kind of distorting lens that’s a product of both the architecture of our brain and the disparities in our society.” This book explores the difficult conversation of race from a particularly relevant vantage point for the present time.
