The Love Has No Labels campaign put together this public showcase to remind us that we are all the same. We are all just humans. They used a giant X-ray machine so that the onlookers only saw skeletons. For those few moments behind the screen, they were just people. The audience’s first impressions of each group showcased had nothing to do with race, gender, age, disability, or religion since all they could see was skeletons.
The description below the video explains the meaning behind the experiment in full:
While the vast majority of Americans consider themselves unprejudiced, many of us unintentionally make snap judgments about people based on what we see—whether it’s race, age, gender, religion, sexuality, or disability. This may be a significant reason many people in the U.S. report they feel discriminated against. Subconscious prejudice—called “implicit bias”—has profound implications for how we view and interact with others who are different from us. It can hinder a person’s ability to find a job, secure a loan, rent an apartment, or get a fair trial, perpetuating disparities in American society. The Love Has No Labels campaign challenges us to open our eyes to our bias and prejudice and work to stop it in ourselves, our friends, our families, and our colleagues.
