From UC-Berkley's Greater Good Science Center, a powerful tour of what science reveals about the roots of prejudice-and how we can overcome it.
Scientists have explored these questions for years, and Are We Born Racist? brings their discoveries to a general audience for the first time, as leading scientists, psychologists, educators, and many others discuss why and how our brains form prejudices, how racism hurts our health, steps we can take to mitigate prejudiced instincts, and what a post-prejudice society might actually look like.
