I have lost count of the number of times I have had BME staff describe to me how they have watched White colleagues – whom they had welcomed, inducted, supported and helped to train – get promoted over them again and again. I have lost count of the number of time I’ve been told how “stretch opportunities” (such as acting up, secondments, and involvement in significant projects) which are the key to career progression have been filled by a tap on the shoulder followed by promotion. #SideBySide

The opportunity cycle seen through the lens of race and ethnicity from the Bank of England

A set of pictures highlights the ‘opportunity cycle’ of two employees. A White colleague, due to their strong rapport with similar team mates, is given opportunities, gains exposure, excels and is more likely to be promoted. A minority ethnic colleague is given less high profile work, develops less and is overlooked for promotion. #SideBySide

Cindy Gallop To Female Founders: “Let’s Design Our Own Playing Field” - B&T

“White men get funded on potential. White women get funded on proof, and not (often) even then, and black women and people and women of colour don’t get funded”. “It’s very easy for a white male investor to meet a white male founder and go “oh, he reminds me of myself at his age.

Racial Profiling: The Bike Thief

In this episode of the American television show What Would You Do?, two different actors stage a bike theft in a public park. Both actors are teenage boys, about the same age, wearing similar clothes, using the same set of burglary tools in the same park, around the same time of day, trying to cut off the lock of the same bike; however, one of the actors is black and the other is white. Comment: So the fact that a white guy was there for more than 20 minutes before even anyone asked him anything doesnt mean anything to you #SideBySide

Double Standard: Bike 'Thief' Experiment Highlights Racism

The white "thief" was allowed to go about his business pretty much unbothered, even breaking out an electric saw to draw more attention, because people failed to stop him. More than 100 people passed by, and only one couple attempted to contact authorities. Someone even wished him good luck. The black bicycle "thief" — not so much. He was immediately surrounded and yelled at, and people were whipping out cell phones and snapping pictures of the "thief." #SideBySide

Police response to N.J. mall fight sparks outrage after Black teen cuffed as white teen watches

Study uncovers a gendered double standard for interracial relationships

New research provides evidence that there is greater prejudice toward interracial relationships involving a White woman and a Black man than relationships involving a White man and a Black woman.

What If They Were White? The Differential Arrest Consequences of Victim Characteristics for Black and White Co-offenders

Black offenders are significantly more likely to be arrested than their White co-offending partners, especially for assault offenses. More importantly, this effect—for both assaults and homicides—is particularly strong when the victim is a White woman. Because these differences are between two offenders who commit the same offense together, we argue that the most plausible explanation for the differences is the presence of racial bias or discrimination. #SideBySide

Cops use different tone of voice with black and white drivers - Los Angeles Times


Racial disparities in police officers' tone of voice reduces trust in the police

We use body camera footage to look at how police officers' tone of voice when interacting with Black and White men. Participants responded that officers' tone communicated more respect and friendliness towards White drivers, even as we masked the race of the driver and the content of the officers' speech. Exposing community members to Black-directed (vs. White-directed) speech reduced institutional trust in law enforcement and led to more negative representations of the police #SideBySide

Teacher treatment of students factors into racial gap in school suspensions | Brown University

Elementary schools tend to discipline black students more harshly than white students, leading to a considerable racial gap in expulsion and suspension. That’s among the findings of a new data analysis led by researchers at Brown and Princeton universities. The analysis found that teachers’ different treatment of black and white students accounted for 46% of the racial gap in suspensions and expulsions from school among 5- to 9-year-old children. It showed that about 21% of the gap could be explained by differences in the characteristics of schools that black and white children attend pred...

In the case of Tanya Day, 55, she was arrested after the train conductor found her asleep on the service travelling from Bendigo to Melbourne in 2017. She later died after hitting her head several times while in custody. The coroner found Ms Day was “not treated with dignity and humanity” and the train conductor’s decision to call the police was influenced by “unconscious bias”. “She was the only sleeping passenger he has ever called police to remove from the train, although he comes across three sleeping passengers a week,” the coroner wrote in her findings. The coroner also noted the s...

Side-by-side comparison can help you make ethical choices and avoid stereotypes. // News // Notre Dame Deloitte Center for Ethical Leadership // University of Notre Dame

A recent study showed that when participants evaluated candidates for a job one-by-one, they tended to rely on stereotypes. They ignored candidates’ past performance, and they tended to select male candidates for math tasks and females for verbal tasks. But when they compared male candidates side-by-side with female candidates, they were able to focus on actual job performance and qualifications, and they chose the best person for the job in a less biased manner. #SideBySide

The Pervasiveness Of Racism And Bias In The Media

As global news outlets provide the public with hour-by-hour updates about the conflict, many media outlets and journalists are being called out for racialized language in the way that stories are being reported. In one news segment, a senior foreign correspondent for CBS News stated that Ukraine “isn’t a place, with all due respect, like Iraq or Afghanistan, that has seen conflict raging for decades. This is a relatively civilized, relatively European…city, where you wouldn’t expect that or hope that it’s going to happen.” #SideBySide

Black women, girls, and femmes who go missing or are found dead are rarely reported on. This lack of visibility when it comes to their stories was the reason why the #SayHerName campaign was birthed. ...

Uncovering Unconscious Racial Bias - Lecture Examines Stereotypes and Their Impacts | National Academies

To study whether bias might be shaping disparities in treatment earlier in life, during schooling, Eberhardt and her colleagues gave teachers files describing a hypothetical student’s misbehavior, and asked how they would discipline the student. Half the teachers were given a file for a student named Greg — a stereotypically white name — and the other half were given an identical file for a student named Darnell, a stereotypically black name. When a single incident of misbehavior was described, there was no difference in how teachers said they would discipline the students. But when a sec...

For photos of neutral objects — such as staplers or cameras — all groups of students were able to identify them at the same point in time. But for images of crime-relevant objects such as guns or knives, the result was far different: Students who had been shown black faces identified the images of weapons much sooner than those who had been shown white faces or who had not been shown any photos. The experiment illustrated not only the power of unconscious biases, but also the depth of the stereotypic association people have between blackness and crime — an association that Eberhardt has st...

How hidden bias can stop you getting a job

One recent study by Faye Cocchiara, an instructor of management atArkansas State University, found that prospective employers categorise job applicants using these sociolinguistic cues. “We were interested in what would happen to a person who sounded black and actually wasn’t,” she explains. “About 89% of people were able to classify the people’s voices as black.” The research found that whether the voice came from a black person or not, those who were classified as being black purely on the sound the voice were subjected to more negative judgements. #SideBySide

“What we saw was that suitability of participants was lower for people applying that were obese, versus people who were normal weight or whose weight wasn’t revealed,” says Stuart Flint, senior research fellow in public health and obesity at Leeds Beckett University and an author on the study. This bias was compounded if the candidate fit into multiple categories that are often discriminated against. Obese women, for example, were considered even less suitable for the job than obese men. “People who are overweight are considered lazy and less intelligent – stereotypes that are unfounded,” ...

8 Ways the Media Upholds White Privilege and Demonizes People of Color - Everyday Feminism

For instance, young white men responsible for horrible mass shootings are often given the “brilliant loner” treatment.

On the other hand, when young people of color are the victims of violence, they still rarely get their accomplishments named in the mainstream media. In McKinney, Texas, white neighbors yelled racial slurs and physically assaulted a group of youth of color at a pool party – and things got even worse when a police officer called to the scene wrestled unarmed Black teen...

The West’s hypocritical double standards - Asia Times

I still vividly remember my dean at the time, Kishore Mahbubani, an internationally renowned thinker and former president of the United Nations Security Council, repeatedly sharing his collected examples of the West’s double standards on human rights, including numerous cases in the Middle East, Asia, Latin American and Africa. In his opinion, the reason behind such double standards was that the West will take a moral stand only when its fundamental interests are not affected. That has unfortunately been the hard truth. Today, I would like to add some new cases involving my homeland China...

Does Australia have double-standard when it comes to “terror” convictions? - ABC Religion & Ethics

I readily acknowledge that the details in the respective cases are not thoroughly known, but based on reports, there are a number of serious questions about the standards of justice used to measure and deliver terror convictions. It often appears that Anglo-Australians who possess weapons and extremist materials, and show signs of plotting a terror attack, are charged with far less serious offences at the state level, and are able to avoid the “terrorist” label. Rather than receiving sentences of sixteen, eighteen, or thirteen years, Anglo-Australians have received sentences of three-years ...

The Double Standards Held Against the Black Community in America - The Bottom Line UCSB

In the National Football League (NFL), for example, when Colin Kaepernick knelt in protest during the national anthem, all hell broke loose. Kaepernick did this to bring awareness to police brutality against the black community in order to make the issue visible on a bigger platform. But this came at a heavy cost to his career. After that season, Kaepernick became a free agent and no team picked him up. In 2017, he filed a lawsuit against the NFL for job discrimination on the grounds of advocating for social justice and equality. If Megan Rapinoe, a white, LGBTQ soccer star can do the s...

Race double standard clear in rioters’ Capitol insurrection | AP News

Black Lives Matter protests, 2020: Overwhelming force from law enforcement in dozens of cities. Chemical dispersants. Rubber bullets and hand-to-hand combat with largely peaceful crowds and some unruly vandals and looters. More than 14,000 arrests. The U.S. Capitol, Jan. 6, 2021: Barely more than a few dozen arrests. Several weapons seized, improvised explosive devices found. Members of a wilding mob escorted from the premises, some not even in handcuffs. #SideBySide

Racial Double Standard in Drug Laws Persists Today

In a yearlong investigation, the Asbury Park Press and the USA TODAY NETWORK examined hundreds of thousands of arrest records and federal drug convictions nationwide over the past 30 years. Reporters found that Black people are arrested far more frequently and punished more severely than white people for drug crimes, even though drug use within the two racial groups is roughly the same. #SideBySide

Amnesty International Report denounces the West's 'double standards' | Euronews

Amnesty International's annual report has drawn attention to the West's alleged "racist double standards" in dealing with human rights violations. The organisation gives as an example the reception of Ukrainian refugees based on their country of origin. "They didn't offer the same treatment to those escaping war and repression in Syria and Afghanistan," says Philip Luther, Senior Research and Policy Adviser at Amnesty International. "The USA as well, of course, a vocal critic of Russia's aggression on Ukraine, in a welcome move also admitted tens of thousands of Ukrainians fleeing the w...

Patriarchy on trial: double standards in the criminal justice system - Revolving Doors

In criminal justice terms, this usually means that girls and women are judged more harshly than their male counterparts; disbelieved, decried or demeaned for making a complaint (indeed, culturally coerced into ‘caring’, being ‘kind’ and blaming ourselves for any harms, crimes or injustices against us); and that we are less likely to report violent, sexualised or physical crimes because we know the system is more likely to punish than protect us. #SideBySide

The Gaza war: International selectivity and double standards – Middle East Monitor

Oleksandra Matviichuk, a Ukrainian human rights lawyer and Nobel Peace Prize winner, states: “Instead of siding in the Gaza war, we should all root for humanity.” The divide in the Western approach, especially from the US and the European Union, towards the Russia-Ukraine conflict and the Israeli aggression in Gaza is astonishing. The US has committed approximately $46 billion in military aid to Ukraineand a total of $113 billion in various forms of assistance to defend against “Russian occupation”. In stark contrast, these powers continuously support Israel, not only politically, but also ...

When 1 in 4 #covid cases were in the Mornington peninsula or Toorak and South Yarra or 1/4 of deaths from Ruby Princess, the Bolts & Hanson’s of this world never raised the race of these communities. So when they do now know it’s just filthy racism, gutter racism by racists. #SideBySide

The militarised, punitive treatment of racial minorities is one of the most critical points to lift out of Premier Daniel Andrews' press conference today. Race and class have led to two unequal approaches to public health during COVID-19 THREAD #SideBySide


March 27: Stonnington (Toorak etc) had 58 COVID-19 cases (10% of Victoria's total), the Mornington Peninsula had 39, the second-highest number. Very little testing was being done compared to now. Where were the repurposed booze-buses, police foot patrols and lockdowns then? #SideBySide

A White Man, Black Man, and White Woman All Try To Steal a Bike - And Only One of Them Is Stopped

We've been taught to assume Black people are up to no good. For those who don't understand why that's racist, check out this this hidden-camera experiment by "What Would You Do" where three people (a white man, a Black man, and a white woman) attempt to steal a bike. The responses are not surprising - unless you don't believe racism and benevolent sexism exist. #SideBySide

@stephondoestech I was given the "you're not technical enough" feedback on a job I applied for. I literally trained everyone in the department.

Critics Denounce Racist Double Standard of Western Media's Ukraine Coverage

If your response to war in Ukraine is 'they're just like us,' remember that so are the people of Yemen, Syria, Kurdistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine. #SideBySide

When people complain about double standards towards Ukraine vis a vis Palestine etc, they aren't saying that people of Ukraine deserve to suffer or shouldn't be protected. They're expressing unresolved grief about having a government that didn't defend their people when needed. #SideBySide
