2. The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations

2. The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations

In this episode, we will consider the following questions: Why do Blacks always seem to have the lowest-paying jobs? What are the contributing factors? Is Black Culture the blame?

Key Points:

  • Black children are often taught that the cards are stacked against them

  • McKinsey’s report highlighted that Blacks are overrepresented in low-wage vocations often without benefits and few chances for moving up the ladder.

  • Carter G. Woodson’s statement “If you make a man feel that he is inferior, you don’t have to compel him to accept an inferior status, for he will seek it himself” is as true today as it was in 1933
