We Are All Biased
We are all biased.
Once our brains learn to understand something ONE way, it is very hard to change. Hard, but NOT impossible. This “backwards bicycle” demonstrates brain bias and neuroplasticity in Amsterdam and the USA.
- Could looking at brain bias this way remove the guilt and stigma from racial bias?
- Does it point to a path and timeline for changing our own biases?
- Does it demonstrate how hard it must be to truly be balanced in one’s views?
- Notice how a child was able to overcome his existing bias more easily than his parent (although still with determined effort). What does that mean for our own conversations with our kids and our students about controversial subjects?
