My 'implicit bias' against black peopleClarence Page
"I don't dislike all black people. Most of us are fine.
When people tell me they are surprised to hear that I don't like all black people, I remind them of how little African-Americans were exposed — until recent decades — to positive images of themselves in media and elsewhere.
I think my condition began at age 4. My parents broke the news that I could not go to the amusement park near our southern Ohio home because it did not admit "colored people."
I didn't know it at the time, but it was the beginning of my re-education in being part of an underprivileged class of Americans. Almost everywhere I looked, I saw images of white people achieving things and black people singing, dancing or getting arrested.
