Program Title RACE AND RACISM IN THE NEW MILLENNIUM: The Economic Impact of Unconscious Bias
Program Description As the domestic and international economy evolves, so too has the discriminatory impact of unconscious bias. Burr uses studies on shopping for cars and mortgages, participating in music competitions, and searching for jobs using phantom resumes to show that while the law has eliminated conscious discrimination against African-Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans and others, these groups continue to be harmed at a more insidious, unconscious level. The surprising revelation is that group members sometimes discriminate against each other.
