Racism and sexism is your blindspot

  1. Thinking that you're fair, does not make you fair. 
  2. You don't know all the ways that you are being unfair, it is a BLIND SPOT. 
  3. Everyone has sexist and racist blindspots. Everyone. 
It is hard to identify a blindspots. When you're driving, you have to move your body forward or turn your neck into uncomfortable positions to see your blindspot.

In personal life, it requires similar discomforts, and repeated checking over your blind spots, to avoid colliding into bigotry and sexism.

Jon Stewart describes his personal experience with a blindspot.
