Few people openly admit to holding racist beliefs but many psychologists claim most of us are nonetheless unintentionally racist. We hold, what are called “implicit biases”. So what is implicit bias, how is it measured and what, if anything, can be done about it? It’s racism, pure and simple. What must be done about it is: to not treat people wrong because of their skin color. This isn’t hard stuff people. It’s explains why red squirrels mate with red squirrels and not with the grey one’s.

Part of the race based behaviors is due to the amount of whiteness or blackness an individual has and how that affects that person’s behaviors with other raced people. It’s not an all or nothing response. In fact there are major exceptions. Vanessa Williams is a big, big exception. A full 100% African American woman with a black mother and father. Her DNA however has major European components in addition to the black DNA. She is: 23% from Ghana, 17% from the British Isles, 15% from Cameroon, 12% Finnish, 11% Southern European, 7% Togo, 6% Benin, 5% Senegal and 4% Portuguese. that’s 56% black, 43% white but she’s 100% black by her black parents.Image result for vanessa williams dna

Considering someone like Vanessa can completely overcome your previous ideas about race.

President Trump recently said: “I think the word has really gone down a long way because everybody’s called a racist now. Her own party called Nancy Pelosi a racist two weeks ago,” he said. “The word is so overused, it’s such a disgrace. I can tell you this, I’m the least racist person there is in the world, as far as I’m concerned.”

Trump also claimed that Democrats use the word when they’ve run out of things to criticize.

“They use it almost when they run out of things to criticize you — they say, ‘He’s a racist. He’s a racist.’ … But with me they have a hard time getting away with it, and they don’t get away with it,” he said.
