I grew up in a town where, in the 2010 Census, black people made up less than 4% of the population. Growing up, that number was even smaller. The first time I was ever in a diverse atmosphere, I was 25, substitute teaching in a new town. My first class, mine was the only white face in the room. That was eleven years ago, and I've spent the intervening time trying to deconstruct the privilege and underlying racism I found in myself, my family, and my friends, with varied results. I'm fairly disappointed that I still have this bias, slight or no.
Slight positive bias
