    Few Americans admit to being racist or prejudiced, and yet all of us are shaped by the often buried but intractable prejudices that affect how we see and think of others

    ... Hillary Clinton answered, “Implicit bias is a problem for everyone, not just police. I think, unfortunately, too many of us in our great country jump to conclusions about each other. And therefore, I think we need all of us to be asking hard questions about, you know, ‘Why am I feeling this way?’” Clinton also said, “We’ve got to address systemic racism in our criminal justice system.”
