Bias is so hard

The examples of blue eyes or tall men ring very true to me but I would never have thought about that without this article. It is very pervasive. I was talking to a friend the other day and she pointed out this fact specifically that we have so many biases that are about everyone and everything!

So strategies I am using to try to break through my bias, the best I can.

Reading/Learning - as much as I can handle to try to see how my world has been affected by these unknown perceptions.

Interaction/Listening - trying to be around more diverse people and listening to their struggles/issues with the way they are treated. I am not looking for them to "teach" me because that is not their role. However, I have noticed just being around different voices I hear and see things differently.

I wish there was something like PopUp video that would ping me every time a bias came into play when I engaged. Although I am sure I would need a mute button out of exhaustion at times.
