JUST THINKING OUT LOUD PODCAST

 
 
00:00 / 13:37
 
1X
 

00:11 Intro/Why I think persons should be skeptical when hearing about inequality and the conclusions drawn from the information.
01:41 First Point. How data on income inequality often misses key components to the argument at hand.
02:25 How data tells a different story depending on how much groups are broken into subgroups.
04:34 Second Point. Evidence against the theory of continued white supremacy in the US that is consistently ignored or diminished in its importance.
06:10 Evidence against oppression being the cause of income inequality and less income for minorities, in light of the advancement of other minorities.
07:24 Researching backwards rather than forward without prior conclusions.
07:55 Lack of global context or learning from other countries when discussing US group differences.
09:34 Third Point. Highlighting the assumption that numerical differences in outcomes means it is caused by discrimination, even when the data can be explained by other factors.
10:07 The need to change other people’s behaviour to achieve the desirable outcome of higher income for underperforming groups I think is nonsensical, and unnecessary.
11:00 The removal of self-responsibility when continuously portraying groups as victims
11:15 Fourth Point: We can experience life through data and reports, summarised with an agenda, rather than interacting with the world. Continued in Part 3. *cliffhanger*

As always, thank you for watching! Talk soon.
