For example I might make the argument that 'Women don't face discrimination in the workplace' or that 'There isn't actually any racism anymore'* because I myself don't think in an explicitly racist or sexist manner.
*Caveat: Of course I might qualify the statement with something like 'Everyone is a little unintentionally racist' or something like that. There's also the second problem that my workplace might be particularly progressive, and I'm not witnessing sexism that occurs in other workplaces.
This would be failure to recognize that while I think that way, not everyone else does and it may exist as a problem elsewhere.
Is there a term for this bias, and more importantly, is there some kind of experiment that demonstrates it?
