You’re probably more racist and sexist than you think

Acts of explicit bigotry make the headlines. But the evidence for subconscious prejudice keeps growing

The same goes for checking your privilege. Is it because I’m a historian that this seems so fucking obvious as to be banal? Always check your sources for bias, check your thinking for more bias, check again then get someone else to check. It’s biases all the way down. They’re both so obvious that I hadn’t realised they needed stating. I suppose that just illustrates more unconscious biases on my part. Via Stavvers.
