Tip of the Day:
UC Berkeley professor Rodolfo Mendoza-Denton provides research-based tips for overcoming prejudices based on differences. Here are his top ten strategies, summarized: Travel (somewhere that challenges your worldview); Take a course on prejudice; If you value egalitarianism, recognize that unconscious bias is no more “the real you” than your conscious values; Laugh a little — smiles and happiness help trump racial bias; Recategorize other people according to characteristics that you share; Do your part to save the planet; Stay healthy — a sense of security promotes tolerance of other worldviews; Acknowledge differences, rather than try to fight an uphill battle to ignore them; Remember that people are really bad mind-readers, so communicate; Make a cross-race friend.
