Diversity and Bias

My grade 10 history teacher once said; “There is no such thing as an unbiased opinion”. He was saying that in the context of news reporting and history writing but we all have our biases, opinions, and perspectives in all aspects of our lives.

Vernā Myers works on diversity every single day and confirms she has her points of view that show up even with her efforts toward fairness. The stats are heartbreaking. In the U.S. alone, a black man is 21 times more likely to be shot than a white man. 

Our biases are ending lives and it's up to each of us to change that. This isn't something that happens over there to other people. You and I have work to do – in our businesses, neighborhoods, lives, and our own minds. Today.

You need to watch this.
