    That's good. I actually write a little bit about implicit bias and the test in the book, in the last chapter on talking across difference!. You can order it here: http://www.amazon.com/Race-Baiter-Wields-Dangerous-Divide-Nation/dp/0230341829

    Eric, your response to the 2 interviewees on the issue of racism – makes me question your true level of awareness. I'm sure you believe you are aware but I wonder. I suggest you take the test at https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/.

      I intended to address to comment to Howard, not Eric. Faux pas, sorry.
