An implict bias refers to the stereotypes that people unconsciously have towards people of different groups [1]. An example would be the belief that people of certain racial groups are more likely to be violent[2], which is wrong.

In daily life[edit]

We must learn to overcome implicit biases in order to work and live with people of different religious, and racial backgrounds. It is important for the community and skeptics to teach others to overcome implicit biases in their lives.
