Schools & Social Inequality: Crash Course Sociology #41


We’ve all complained about having to go
to school at some point, right? I mean, who decided that teenagers need to
get to school at the ungodly hour of 7 am? That right there seems like a big drawback
that we didn’t consider when we talked about
the positive functions of schools. Last week, we discussed all the good
things about schooling – how it helps people learn about the world,
how it helps kids meet other kids their own age, and how there are countless other ways
it helps society function better. But there are many not-so-good components
of our educational system – and I’m not just
talking about having to get up at dawn. Social-conflict theory can help us
understand how the US educational system
can disadvantage some people, while giving advantages to others, so that schools
ultimately play a role in reinforcing inequalities. [Theme Music] Education is supposed to be the great
equalizer, right? We’re all told that if you work hard and
do well in school, you can be whatever you
want to be when you grow up. In this understanding of school, society creates
a meritocracy, or a system in which hard work and
talent is recognized and rewarded. In a pure meritocracy, two kids who work
equally hard and have the same raw talent should
do equally well – no matter what neighborhood they grew up in,
no matter their race or gender, and no matter
their class standing. On the surface, it might seem like the US
has a meritocratic school system. But educational measures of merit, like
grades or SAT scores, don’t always measure
everyone’s talents consistently. Grades don’t just measure an individual
student’s effort or ability – they’re also influenced by many factors outside of
the student’s control, like the quality of their school
or their access to resources like books or computers. This is where social-conflict theory comes
into the story. Social-conflict theory helps explain how
our educational system can both cause and
perpetuate class differences. In the United States, there are large class
gaps in educational attainment. While 83% of students from high income
families enroll in college after high school,
only 63% of low income students do. So, why the disparity? One reason is that wealthier kids tend to
live in higher income neighborhoods, which in
turn fund better quality schools. This makes it easier to get into college. In the US, school funding is determined
at the local level – and when I say local,
I mean very local. The city or town that a person lives in determines
the funding of their school system. While federal and state governments provide
some support to school districts, most of the
money comes from local property taxes – meaning that schools in towns with more
expensive houses and higher earning residents
have more resources. For example, Fairfax County, Virginia, one
of the richest counties in the US, spent $13,700
per student in 2016. Compare that to what some of the poorest
counties in the country spend – for example, Scott County in Mississippi
spends a little more than half that amount,
at $7,900 per student. Unsurprisingly, schools in more affluent
communities on average provide a better education
than schools in poorer communities. Having more funding for a school allows schools
to hire better teachers, buy more and better supplies,
offer a wider variety of classes, and provide
extracurricular activities. And these differences in school quality translate
to differences in outcomes for students. We know this because of research like a
recent study done by American economists Kirabo Jackson, Rucker Johnson, and Claudia
Persico which used a natural experiment – court
mandated school finance reform – to show this. They found that increasing school funding
levels by 10% was associated with students
earning 7% higher incomes as adults. And this is only one of many studies that
show that access to better quality, better funded
schools makes kids more likely to go to college. So is money the answer? If we just give schools more money, will
that be enough to fix the class differences
in educational attainment? Well, yes and no. School funding – or the lack of it – is
part of the social inequality we see in the
US education system. But there are plenty of school districts that are
already spending a lot of money per student and
still struggle to improve their student’s outcomes. So why is that? You might remember French sociologist
Pierre Bourdieu’s work on cultural capital from
our episode a few months ago on socialization. Cultural capital is valuable cultural knowledge
and experience that can be translated to forms
of economic and social capital. Even if school funding was the same
everywhere, students whose parents have
the time, money, and knowledge to support education in the home will have
a step up on students whose parents don’t have
the time or resources to pass on cultural capital. For example, higher income parents are more likely
to read to their kids and spend more time interacting
with their children, even at very young ages – which leads to kids entering school with a
more robust vocabulary and better literacy skills
than their less affluent peers. By the age of three, children of professionals
have vocabularies that are 50% larger than those
of children from working-class families. Children from different class backgrounds
are also exposed to different expectations
about the path that their lives will take. If you grow up in an upper middle class
neighborhood where your parents and all your
friends’ parents have college degrees, you’re much more likely to expect that you’ll go
to college, too – and you’ll prepare accordingly. Recall the self-fulfilling prophecy from last
episode? This is one way that works. But for people whose parents didn’t go to
college, expectations for attending college
may be lower. It may also be much harder to navigate applications
for college, understand how the financial aid system
works, or register for courses, all distinct barriers
to attending college. This specialized knowledge is a form of cultural
capital. So, schools and families unfortunately often
work together to reproduce social inequality – kids with parents who have more time or money
to devote to education in the home are also the kids
most likely to be in well funded, high quality schools. And the US education system doesn’t just
contribute to class gaps in educational achievement. We also see persistent achievement gaps by race
in the US, and they’re made worse by elements of our
education system that advantage white students. We’ve talked before about the role that historical
patterns of segregation have played in shaping the
neighborhoods that minority kids grow up in. For example, Black children are more likely
to be living in lower income neighborhoods, which tend to have worse schools because of
how schools are supported by local tax dollars. That’s a real structural disadvantage. But social-conflict theorists point out other,
lesser known ways that our education system
privileges White students over minority students,
particularly Black and Hispanic students. First, most teachers and school
administrators are white – which has important implications both for the
curriculum that students are taught in schools
and how students are evaluated. A recent study of a nationally representative
sample of American students found that black students with the same
standardized test scores as their white classmates
were less likely to be nominated for gifted programs
if they had a non-black teacher. But this bias didn’t exist for students
who had a Black teacher. This is an example of tracking, in which
schools assign students to different types
of educational programs. While tracking is supposed to help teachers
meet different students’ needs, it often ends
up enhancing existing inequalities. White and Asian students are more likely to
chosen to be in honors or AP classes than
Black and Hispanic students – which then contributes to racial gaps
in college attendance. Who gets chosen for college prep classes
and who’s put in vocational classes often has to do with not just academic ability,
but teacher’s perception of a student’s behavior. Let’s go to the Thought Bubble to talk about
how classroom discipline has especially negative
implications for minority students. In the classroom, certain behaviors are expected
of students. Sit at your desk.
Raise your hand. Finish your assignments quickly and quietly. While these may seem simple once you’re an
adult, these tasks are often difficult for young kids,
but breaking these rules can have huge consequences. Minority students, particularly Black and
Latino boys, are much more likely to be disciplined
for minor classroom infractions like these, often resulting in suspension of expulsion
from school. Black students are suspended at rates three
times higher than their white classmates. And if you’re suspended or expelled, you’re
not in the classroom learning. Higher risk of suspension and expulsion also puts
minority students at a higher risk of doing poorly in
school and contributes to higher dropout rates. This ultimately affects their job prospects,
and therefore their class standing. But being in school also keeps kids off the
street. Kids who are suspended or expelled are more
likely to engage in risky behaviors like drug
use or other criminal behavior. This contributes to what’s known as the
school to prison pipeline. This is an informal ‘tracking’ for students
that criminalizes deviant behavior in schools, even minor disciplinary issues, like talking
back to teachers. For minority students, schools are more
likely to escalate disciplinary issues to the
juvenile justice system, putting students in contact with the
criminal justice system at an early age. Thanks Thought Bubble. Another way that minority students end up
being sorted into lower academic tracks are
through standardized test scores. Standardized tests are a topic of great contention,
due to concerns about teachers ‘teaching to the
test’ and not teaching a full, broad curriculum. And most standardized tests are made and tested on
the dominant group in society – the white middle class. Critics of standardized testing often cite
cultural bias as part of the reason that we see gaps
in test scores across race and class lines. The federal school funding requirements put
in place by the No Child Left Behind act in 2001 also can create some perverse incentives for
how schools classify their students. To keep getting federal funding, schools have
to have a certain percentage of their students
pass the national assessments. But students can be made exempt from these
tests if they’re classified as disabled – which can lead to schools labeling marginal
students as learning disabled to maintain the pass
rate that they need to get funding. This is important, because, as we discussed
last week, the labels that schools give students
often turn into self-fulfilling prophecies. A marginal student who’s kept in the regular
testing pool may be more likely to have teacher time
and resources devoted to their improvement than
one who’s labelled as learning disabled. And, this type of tracking is more common
for minority students, which can contribute
to racial gaps in educational achievement. More broadly, tracking can have long term
consequences for what kinds of opportunities
are available to students or the choices that
they make later in life. For example, boys are more likely to be tracked
in higher level math classes than girls are. This contributes to fewer women pursuing math-heavy
careers, like economics or engineering – which happen to be some of the more highly paid
careers, meaning that tracking is one contributor
to the gender pay gap. Ultimately, educational systems are grounded in
the biases of the society that they’re built within – and while our schooling system does a lot
of good, social conflict theorists point out that
its structural features – everything from taxes, to cultural capital,
to standardized testing – can disadvantage minorities in ways that
can perpetuate patterns of social inequality. Today, we discussed a few of those social
inequalities in the US education system, using social conflict theory to explore how our
system deviates from a meritocracy. We discussed how school funding and school
quality varies by income. Then, we looked at how cultural capital
and the family you grow up in impacts your
educational experiences. Finally, we used racial conflict theory to
understand how the American school system
disadvantages minority students through practices such as tracking,
disciplinary biases, and standardized testing. Crash Course Sociology is filmed in the Dr.

100 thoughts on “Schools & Social Inequality: Crash Course Sociology #41”

  1. Personally, I migrated to the US when I was 11 and I can say that the lack of funds and resources where I went to school hindered my life. I grew up having very bad teachers, specially math teachers. Most of my life I thought I was terrible at math therefore; I didn't even try to take more math classes. I had a desire to go to college and the resource I used was my brother to have access to information on how to go and what to do to cover the cost. I had shown and interest to attend bu t didn't get any help from the school adviser. Being the first generation to go from my family, I had no guidance on what to actually do with a college degree, I majored in one that didn't require a lot of math. Consequently I did nothing with that degree and now I'm 29 and I am taking computer science classes and work in IT. If I would have been prepared to take college level classes when I went I would have probably done a better degree and could be making more money now. I really think that all this does have an impact on children, pretty much everything she's saying I've witnessed, all my teenage years everybody had such bad expectations for me. like, becoming a teenage mom, being a school drop out etc. Even school advisers don't care to mention college to you unless you are white and are involve in an athletic activity. Is very sad. When you're poor and non-white all the odds are against you. We should also point out that established wealth brings more income than income alone. meaning; inherited privileges start people with different opportunities.
    I still live in NM and would never want to have children raised here due to the poor school system.

  2. Pure BS…. notice what is not mentioned as a cause… LOW IQS, broken homes, drugs, ghetto culture, lack of parent involvement…all of which explain both poor education results and why rich families are rich and poor families are poor.

  3. People are turning a lot of things into a race issue when it doesn't need to be, it's not about race, it's about your actions and decisions, "black people are more likely to be in poverty" it's not because they're black, it's because they're normal people that just made bad decisions and don't teach their kids how to make the right decisions

  4. Maybe because minority students act worse than the "white male" I still don't see how this has anything to do with race 😂😂 it doesn't, it's about their actions

  5. I keep hearing these whiny ppl in the comments sarcastically say "oh so I'm EVIL for being white huh?" when no one in a fifty mile radius is asserting anything like that, lol

    I'm gonna go to Crash Course Astronomy and go "Oh, so I'm supposed to believe the SPACE GOD eats only TWO MAIDEN SACRIFICES" and see if I get the same traction

  6. I was raised near Los Angeles in an 88% Hispanic School District, where the second highest nationality was Asian, I'm white. When I went to our career counselors and and our college prep staff to talk about applying for college and scholarships, grants etc. I was told they didn't have anything for me. My school was really well set up to help our minority students to succeed. We were a California Distinguished School, which means we were in the top 1% of the state for all of the performance metrics. We had a really high College acceptance rate, great test scores, lots of students in AP, Honors, and College prep courses, an award winning debate and academic decathlon team, an award winning band, great teacher retention, everything you would see in a really high performing school. The biggest difference is we were predominantly Hispanic with a small Asian population and an even smaller percentage of white students. I think I was one of 8 students in my class of 800, so 1% white. They couldn't help me succeed in anything beyond high school because they had focused so tightly on learning how to give minority students the help they needed that they didn't know how to help someone who couldn't qualify for those programs. Essentially I and the rest of my 1% fell through the cracks. I don't think any of us went straight on to college, and now, more than 20 years later I think I may be the only one who has attended college at all from that 1% of white students. That's a severe over correction, what's the solution to that?

  7. I'm a Male Latino who grew up in the modern US urban public school system and I must say that this video seems sorely misguided. There were virtually no white kids while I was going to school. The few that were were few and far between and they never amounted to anything compared to the rest of us. It was the asian kids that did better than the rest because they had the push from home to do so. That's where it all starts from, the home…not income or race. The city schools are well enough now to allow any kid who wants to be academically successful ample opportunity to do so. I'm a college graduated guy who's now a technology professional and I didn't come from any white privilege. I think this video needs some serious re visioning.

  8. so what i get from this video:
    1. richer enviroments give more funding to schools
    2. better funded school get better results
    3. higher educated parents teach their kids more ad home
    4. misbehaving in school leads to lower results
    5. black and hispanic people misbehave more in school

    conclusion: only though personal hardschip can someone in a disadvantage overcome his situation, this is not going to be easy. If someone overcomes his disadvantage then he/she can secure a better future for his/her children.
    failure to overcome ones disadvantage leads to a continuation of the the problem.
    This problem can only be solved by the disadvantaged party through hard work.

  9. White person talks back to teacher “don’t do that billy!
    Black person talks back to teacher “ Daquan you are expelled.

  10. I seem to see college graduates don't have as much success compared to high school grads. It might be just my area really.

  11. I've noticed anytime someone states facts or anything that promotes the idea that white people have any form of advantage in american society the pop-corn gallery shows up in the comments and the pitch forks come out… lol

  12. USA tertiary education system is also another barrier to entry to high paying jobs e.g. legal and medicine. Poor students need to go through undergraduate and then work part time to fund their postgraduate which a hurdle that students from wealthy background don't experienced. This is not the case in UK, Aus & NZ where hard-working and smart students can enter into undergraduates based on their high school results and the gov often subsidises their first bachelor degrees; hence lowering the social inequality for poorer students.

  13. Questions:
    -This students from high/low income families who not enroll in college, do they actually wanted to enroll?
    -> there are actually a lot more choices if I think about the US education system like: Trade school, apperentice training, military schools etc.

    -Why should a standartized test be something "important" for gifted programs?
    I really do not think that a test, designed for normal students, is something what you consider the right parameter for finding gifted students.
    I would say there were more to consider if choosing.
    -> You mention 3 variables (race child/score/race teacher) and who of them got more gifted programs…without mention how much more they get chosen.
    Btw. there are maybe more variables which are more important to look at like economic class.

    I really dont know why this video is so inconsistent with informations for statements.
    On one part she shows a statistic and explains… fine.
    On the other part she is just making a statement without showing any numbers.

  14. I went to a private high school that was attentive to each students' learning and had a fraction of the population of the average public high school in the same city, and I can definitely see the differences she mentioned. My school would prep my classmates and I extremely well for the province-wide exams we'd have to take every year, to the point that we'd find them easy compared to the work we did during the school year. Our average was always higher than the province's, and the vast majority of us found it easy to get into the post-secondaries we wanted. I never really thought much about it until right now…. 🙁

  15. I would so like to leave a meaningfull comment about how this applies "in these here parts", but it is to damn complex to demonstrate without leaving certain factors, and leaving out factors is the reason for all this. So I think i'm just going to move to the bush and shoot squirrels.

  16. Teachers "teaching to the test". While he couldn't deviate too much from the curriculum, I'm very glad that my Sixth Form chemistry teacher always used to say "This is what you need to pass the test. Now, if you want to be a good chemist, THIS is what you need to do." The students who were there just to get a qualification would be satisfied with the first part, but the rest of us would be able to properly engage with the subject if we stuck around for the second half of the lesson.

  17. After I watched almost the entire playlist of their philosophy series. If definitely makes it easier, if you will, for me to understand these videos. I gotta say, crash course has turned my entire view for knowledge and learning how and why things may be into something i never thought it would get to. I have spent hours just watching these videos and that has been the highlight of a lot of my days. Hope this channel lasts for a long long time!

  18. You guys seem to be confusing correlation and causation in parts of this video. There were several times you started out with the assumption that “yes, this negative thing is happening,” without really showing evidence that it was.

  19. Well informed and based on actual facts and studies not opinions. I don’t understand why there’s so many dislikes. The points even apply to the English education system.

  20. I remember watching a TV documentary that passed off a Cato institute tidbit that "throwing money at the problem" won't work. It also asserted that paying kids to go to school works.

  21. How do we fix deep social problems? Blame white people, check. Tell minority students they are not smart enough to take same tests as white students, then blame white people, check. Education system racist, blame white people, check. Your community is too wealth, racist hoarders, check. Teachers profiling black students for bad behavior, blame white teachers, check. Virtue signal and solve nothing……………inequality has allows existed, the true goal is equality of opportunity.

  22. Jeez, who cares? All i hear from this serious is "Rich white people suck lol"
    Also race really doesn't change anything in school. It's all on the student's performance, if a black/white kid doesn't feel like doing work that's on them.

  23. I've been following this series quietly from the beginning and I have to say, this is my favorite episode so far. When I went to college to become a teacher I read lots of books about the role of school in perpetuating social inequalities, and I believe you did a very good job succintly explaining the matter. It's a shame to see the amount of downvotes and negative comments in this video, when most of it was a sequence of *assertion, backed by statistic*.

  24. No mention that Asian students are put at a disadvantage because they’re too smart. Asians applying to Ivy League colleges in the USA require higher test scores/grades than white/black/Latin college applicants.

  25. In my experience, troublemakeing kids are FAR less likely to "act up" with a male teacher or male substitute. Boys are FAR more likely to act up than girls leading boys to receive more attention than girls. Meaning girls end up slipping through their classes un-noticed while the boy causes a scene and subsequently, a hidden talent is noticed and nurtured.

    Maybe we start thinking outside the box on how to deal with troublemakers with the goal being to redirect their troublemakeing energy instead of removing them from the class.

    Having teachers who's main purpose is to focus on individual students who otherwise would go un-noticed. Figuring out what makes the student tick, and nurturing that aspect as much as possible and informing the parents and teachers about the aspect so they can nurture as well.

    Also get more GOOD men, "masculine" men in the classroom. The "man" part mixed with "masculine" part can be a really good fix for now and maybe even the long term. Or at least until we find a way to control social behavior better.

  26. Crash course has become racist anti-white propaganda, teachers aren't racist because blacks and Mexicans don't do as well in school.

  27. Why is it that after watching so many Crash course videos on different topics, I am concluding that everything in this word is flawed. Even the best of the Western world has problems.

  28. Why do people in the comments refuse to acknowledge the fact that environmental inequality effects how well students can learn.

  29. Just watched the entire playlist before my intro to sociology final.. thanks so much! I feel more prepared with the visuals and my teacher is not nearly as good at lecturing as you are. 🙂

  30. you are awesome for making this video! I use some of your points for my essay on illiteracy in America and all of who is affected (i.e. race/ gender/ lack of resources etc.)… P.S. you should make a video of how to solve illiteracy in America… based on social inequality.

  31. It is now more important than ever in america to receive a good education.
    This will enable you to fully comprehend and intelligently fill in the required forms for unemployment benefits, welfare, and the many applications for other available assistance programs after you graduate.
    And of course, two to four years of college results in a more professional looking and impressive application……..

  32. Poor. Low income……

    She is confusing the outcome of the achievement gap with the cause of the achievement gap.

    Poverty does not cause low academic achievement. 

    Low academic achievement causes poverty.

    Low IQ is one reason for poor academic achievement in the black communiry.

    An IQ of 80 is thought to be the minimum score required to grasp the curriculum well enough to graduate high school.

    The average IQ of a high school graduate is 99.

    The average IQ of blacks is 85.

    Only 40% of blacks have an IQ above 90.

    Only 52% of blacks nation wide graduate high school in four years.

    We know that blacks are passed through the educational system despite their not meeting academic standards for graduation so the actual graduation percentage should be much lower than 52%.

    It has been found that the average black college freshmen is four years behind their white college classmates.

    Never in the history of the human race have people had access to such a vastness of knowkedge.

    We literally hold it all in the palm of our hand and yet people like this woman complain about access to resources.

    Schools are not needed, teachers are not needed and books are certainly not needed for a person to become educated. 

    A thirst for knowledge, a desire to achieve and the willingness to put forth the necessary effort are required.

    Some people have those qualities.  Others do not.

  33. 9:02 This just angers me about schools. Some kids just don't like sitting for 2 hours while listening to a boring lecture. These kids can be labeled as having ADHD or something like that, even when they're perfectly normal.

    This is just one of the several reasons why the school system is messed up.

  34. Amazing how she can just claim racism with every single gap and not consider any other factors that could lead to it. Thats the controversial part… some of you think shes providing this undeniable fact based breakdown, but in reality only provides half the story. Thats the "bubble" you guys live in as you like to say of us. Like how the public school systems of inner cities spends more per capita than anywhere else, yet yield the same awful results. no matter the aid amount. And of course lets ignore how the smallest minority in asians outdoes whites in education. even through all the racial stigma between imperial japan, communist china, korea, or vietnam.

  35. Nothing like talking honestly about racial and social inequality in education and the myth of hard work to bring out droves of racists, apologists, Status Quo Warriors. LOL

  36. 7:50 "being in school also keeps kids off the street. kids who are suspended or expelled are more likely to engage in risky behaviours like drug use or other criminal behaviour. this contributes to what is known as the school to prison pipeline"
    umm … what? the direction of causality seems reversed here. wouldn't this be better stated as, "kids who use drugs or do other criminal behaviour are more likely to be expelled" just because someone is expelled does not mean they have to turn to crime lol

  37. I am the first person in my family to actually attend college. My mother put herself through nursing school, but, at that time, it was a school of nursing separate from the college system.

  38. 1985 my father said he a 10 or more student. Was not give their diplomas despite completing the classes. All he said was Mexican and black. He was missing half a Credit paper work show complete. Last page not fully signed,would not give. What him a others worked for. Same happened to his uncle. So what, imagine that happening to you.

  39. Wealthy people tend to have higher IQ , and as a result make more money. They pass on their higher than average intellect onto their children. Similarly successful families usually live with other like families, and their combined children make great schools.. Isn't REAL SCIENCE a wonderful thing

  40. More intelligent parents will spend more time with their children because they were able to do better in school, got into college, and either started a business or got a good paying job.

    Its not about money.

    Its about IQ.

  41. I hear that at the schools I went to "disabled" has started to mean "spanish-speaking household" due to no child left behind. It makes it really rough on the special ed teachers to have to both care for disabled children and teach ESL.

  42. Assuming the unnamed study is true and teachers recommend blacks less and discipline and suspend them more, let’s ask this, is it because they’re seen as lesser, or because they act out more? What if they act out more because they usually lack fathers in the home? Complex issue this is.
    Also, no mention of how great Asians are doing, how they outperform whites and everything. Their outlier proves it might be more about the cultural values than about discrimination. You can’t call it discrimination if each individual gets the proper and equal response to their actions.

  43. If you really want to help inequality, you should enforce rules and standards in public schools and not be afraid to make kids repeat a year and not graduate them until they have met the requirements for graduation.

  44. This is not true across the board. In my local district. The inner-city schools receive more funding than suburban schools. Yet the suburban schools do better. She fails to mention that high income neighborhoods often have smaller conservative governments that keep property taxes low while big city governments with poor neighborhoods are more likely to have huge public programs.

  45. For those of you who don't know: social-conflict theory is a marxist theory and marxism is a basis of communism (a social lie-based ideology that killed millions of people). I think it would be fair to point that fact out when using this theory to explain anything.

  46. Advantage white students? African American get admitted at a far lower grade than Asian American and white American.

  47. Read the story of Vijay Chokal-Ingam and tell me who are at the disadvantage and who are actually most privileged in education system.

  48. Normally, I don't post comments in the Crash Course: Sociology section because I prefer reading the comments, but this time, I feel the need to comment.

    Wanna know the REAL reason as to why black and Latino students are more likely to get suspended or expelled? It's because they don't want to learn. It has NOTHING to do with their skin color. If you've ever been around black people in school, then you will know that most black guys and black girls get into fights, resulting in them getting suspended. They also cause class disruption and most of all, blacks bully other students. Heck, even a black guy/girl gets bullied by other blacks if they don't act like their peers (smoking drugs, studying, reading books). I noticed that black students are always late in class, are often absent, don't pass their homework in time.

    I'm an Asian girl and I was bullied by my black classmates. They would throw pennies at me, one black guy tried to steal my chips from my backpack. I could go on but I'm not going to. My grades suffered because I couldn't learn in such a hostile environment.

    Watch Colin Flaherty's videos on black violence. ALL types of violence exists. From black ON WHITE violence to black ON ASIAN violence to black on elderly violence. Black on gay violence exists. Then you will get a rude awakening.

  49. Gender again ignored as it is inconvenient for the narrative. Issues surrounding boys in general are ignored and framed to serve your message. The odd thing is I doubt you are even aware of your bias.

    I can not listen to any more of this series, the gender agenda is suffocating. It all started so well as well. Adios, I am checking out.
