Verna Myers: How to Overcome Our Biases? Walk Boldy Toward Them

by Verna Myers

In her 18 minute TEDx talk, Myers addresses what to do about our subconcious biases and stereotypes. She offers concrete actions for individuals to do including to be done with denial and colorblindness. Instead her slide show and talk ask us to 'stare at awesome black men' to see both their color and character and 'if you see something, say something.' She also challenges white parents to address the issue of racism with their children by talking about it.
