Israelin Shockness, author
Respect is Only Human: A Response to Disrespect and Implicit Bias is an honest, down-to-earth, easy-to-read book, suitable for all ages, explaining how respect, a commodity that is in short supply today, can go a long way to eradicating implicit bias and racism. This book addresses the issue of racism in the 21st century, and tells the reader not to be surprised, because racism has been lurking under the surface, masquerading in the form of disrespect. It illustrates how disrespect is found in all areas of society, from the home to boardrooms and offices of governments, corporations and institutions, where some leaders show more compassion for the bottom line than for their employees and those lower down the organizational ladder. Respect is Only Human: A Response to Disrespect and Implicit Bias examines respect in its many forms, showing that it is respect that is the foundation of society and the foundation of all of our daily lives. While the book stresses respect for each other, it also stresses respect for important values that maintain human dignity and that support the survival of our environment.
