SN 776: A Tale of Two Counterfeits

Beep boop - this is a robot. A new show has been posted to TWiT…

What are your thoughts about today’s show? We’d love to hear from you!


Here’s what I really, sincerely don’t get. White and black have existed long before humans, so even though I am a so-called “black” person, whitelist and blacklist don’t bother me. But why insist on calling people white and black? There is not a single person on earth whose skin is either white or black. It just seems lazy. Imagine going into a paint store and every label read either red, blue, or yellow. There have been thousands of descriptive names given to paint colors, but about half the people on the planet are either labeled as white or black. Makes it easy to reinforce distinctions.
