As a science teacher and chemist, I always believed that I was objective and would not be trapped into foolish, racist beliefs that separated human beings based on social politics. Never had I learned about how science was used to justify and treat people so appallingly. It saddens me to have not learned this earlier and makes me question what other beliefs I have about myself that need more information. I was not just a white exceptionist but a scientific exceptionist who use to believe that observational truths guided science. I am saddened to learned that social constructs and implicit bias seem to influence the scientific 'discoveries' more than evidence.
