The meaning of "Bias" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does biased mean?
A: It means that you aren't being fair in how you examine something.

For example, if I got into a car accident and my mom saw, she wouldn't be a good witness in court, because she is biased in my favor. Of course my mom is going to take my side over a stranger's.

Another way this is used is politically. A newspaper may be said to have a liberal or conservative bias. In America, for example, if a newspaper has a conservative bias, it will criticize Democrats more than Republicans, and might even make excuses when Republicans do the same thing that they criticized the Democrats for.

You can use it in any situation where someone likes one thing more than something else and it affects how they speak or act in an unfair way.

Q: What does biased mean?
A: when you are biased, you prefer one thing over another. It doesn't always have to be a negative thing either.

It gets more negative when you are biased towards a certain group of people or ethnicity. For example, if you're biased towards your own people you may think they are better at certain things in certain cases.

As a result, you can have a biased opinion where you favour one side more than another and so are not treating both sides equally.

I hope this made sense. :)

A: I believe it is "over-represented minority". An over-represented minority is a group of people (a minority, so <50%) that has a higher percentage in a specific field/group than their percentage in the overall population.

For example, if 1% of all people in China were Caucasians (White people), but 5% of students in China were Caucasians, then Caucasians would be an over-represented minority in Chinese student populations because you would expect there to only be 1%. That's not a real statistic, just trying to explain.

I am guessing the article you were reading is probably about college applications in America? That term is mainly used in that kind of article, or articles about prisons.

Hope that helps!
