American Denial: Implicit Bias Test

Clip: Season 16 Episode 9 | 2m 14s

This excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary American Denial looks at the “Implicit Bias Test,” which was created to test people’s unconscious bias toward words and concepts, and toward races. It is not about conscious attitudes and beliefs, as one researcher tells us in the film, but about something you yourself may not know you have.
