“Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People”
by Mahzarin R. Banaji and Anthony G. Greenwald
“Accessible and authoritative … While we may not have much power to eradicate our own prejudices, we can counteract them. The first step is to turn a hidden bias into a visible one… What if we’re not the magnanimous people we think we are?”
The Washington Post
