Comment Quiz to check your implicit bias (Score 2, Insightful) 398

One of the big problems with discrimination is that many people have an implicit (unconscious) bias but little explicit (conscious) bias. This results in everyone saying they are color-blind, but acting differently. I challenge the Slashdot readers to gauge their own implicit bias by taking the implicit bias test at . I found my own results to be surprising, and I suspect that yours may be surprising as well.

What? What planet are you living on? There is no insurance requirement to get a drivers license, and no requirement for a drivers license for that matter. Most states will require you to have insurance in order to register your car, but that is not the same thing as having Drivers License or State ID.

Care to retract your fabrication and start over?

Insurance requirements vary by state.

You are required to have liability insurance to get a driver's license in the state of North Carolina, USA. This is a requirement even if you don't own a vehicle. You may get a state ID card without insurance. The liability insurance follows the person, not the car. For example, if person A drives persons B's car into person C's car, then person A's liability insurance covers C's car, but not B's. Person A & B's insurance companies would have to figure out who covers the damage on person B's car.

Without life, Biology itself would be impossible.
