Sat Nov 18 2017 panel on IMPLICIT RACIAL BIAS
Speakers or Gov Office Holders
Judge Joseph Donald
Milwaukee County Circuit Court, Branch 2.
His talk: 01:40 – 16:40.
Test he took shown he (a black) is biased against blacks: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/takeatest.html.
His mother carefully taught hims as young child how to behave in rich white peoples homes around white adults and children his age, as she worked as a housekeeper in Patrick Cudahy’s house. The freeway project forced a move as he grew up, causing a black migration – he describes the reaction of whites to new black neighbors. He thinks it can be strategic to use the word ‘biased’ instead of racist when appropriate. Yes there is "implicit bias".
Ms. Nichole Yunk-Todd
Division Administrator, Milwaukee Youth Services
Her talk starts 17:24, through 31:10
Topics: "automatic vs controlled thought processing"; "association tests"; "blackness associated w/fear, crime and poverty"; "sub dominate group"; "social cognition measurements", ‘shooter bias’: association of black face with "shooter/gun holder"; "authority/decision makers"; "critical race theory"; judging "sub dominate group" group by it’s worst members, dominate group by it’s best.
Remedy: Decrease social distance. Increase high quality social interactions.
Dr. Harry Oden
Retired MPS Principal, Educational Consultant, Motivational Speaker.
Starts 31:56, ends 53:18
Former basketball player – 1 of 3 blacks at Univ MN/ Duluth; 60+ but still athletic. Very ‘big on public schools’. Was discriminated against in MPS after college. MPS delayed hiring, once hire he was given "bad assignments". Found his niche in MPS as teacher, and honored administrator; did much to mediate/reduce conflict among students, and between student factions, black and white. Judge a person by what is coming from their heart, not your first auto-impressions. Racism in education is as rampant as ever. Unfortunately education about profit now.
question and answer starts at 53:18
Tim Burns – WI Supreme Ct Candidate
Not a speaker, just one of several politicians there. Had good discussion w/him about economics.
