WHAT INTELLIGENCE TESTS SAY ABOUT RACE / WHAT IS CODE-SWITCHING?

Todays episode we discuss the bias that is found in some far-right conservative circles and pockets of the internet that suggest that White people are intellectually superior to Black people. We examine the origins of this myth, explain how dangerous and divisive it can be, and remind you to look beyond the numbers published in reports.

The second half we discuss code-switching or talking White as well as why Black people will sometimes switch up their dialect, cadence, tone, and even posture when interacting with White people or people in positions of authority. We give insight into this phenomenon and why its necessary for Black people to essentially be bilingual in America.
