Racism: The Far Reaching Effects of Our Implicit Associations
On February 3, 1999 Amadou Diallo returned to his apartment home in the Bronx, NY after a late night at work. He decided to go outside on his front stoop to relax for a bit and take in the night. Nearby an unmarked police car with four White undercover officers was patrolling the area, deemed as a ‘hot spot’ for criminal activity.

Board of Education in 1954 called for desegregation of schools. By the mid 1900’s the Civil Rights Movement was in full swing, encouraged by figured like Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In 1963, Dr. King delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech, declaring, “I have a dream my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Forty-five years later, America has made great strides toward achieving his dreams.

This establishes that Americans do acknowledge racism in society, largely considering it “somewhat of a problem” and even agreeing by majority that Blacks in the community do experience racial discrimination (“Polling Report”). However, when asked to honestly assess themselves for any personal racial prejudice, 64% of Americans claimed to have none (“Polling Report”). Is it possible that all of the racism found in America lies within an institutional ideology and not within the people themselves? Chances are, no. The problem behind this discrepancy is in the nature of racial bias in humans. In most cases prejudice is not an explicit decision or action, it is an implicit process relying on ...
