Landecker Fellow Asha Shajahan recently released a special episode of her podcast Beaumont HouseCall entitled “Implicit Bias and Racism.” This episode is part two of an interview with Howard Ross, best-selling author and life long social justice activist. In this episode, the two discuss the implications of saying “Black lives matter” versus “all lives matter.” Ross unpacks how structural racism and implicit biases affect the opportunities different identity groups receive or are denied.
Beaumont HouseCall is a podcast made by doctors to provide accurate discussions about health trends and news. You can listen to the full episode here.
