Welcome to the Bias Bar — Can I serve you a bias of mine?

A museum experiment in addressing a sensitive topic.

“I judge people as soon as I see them. I wish I could stop.”

“Because I’m Jamaican, everyone expects me to smoke weed.”

“I need to become more educated on Muslim beliefs and culture.”

Here’s the menu.

And here are some of the biases we’ve been served:

“I often think that people are less educated than me when they don’t share my political opinions.”

“People think that because I am an introvert, I am easily manipulated and can be spoken for.”

“I’m not a woman because I don’t want kids.”

“I’m a medical doctor and I’m homosexual. I’ve been told that I’d better make transvestite shows, instead of being a doctor!”

“When the IRA bombed London, Manchester and Birmingham, we didn’t ban all the Irish or Catholics, we understood it was a small group of arseholes.”

“I am not a racist, but I voted for Donald Trump.”
