Good Information with Racist Pseudoscience.
The first lecture presented evidences that self-imposed stereotypes can be harmful if the stereotype is harmful.
However the presenter went on to argue that affirmative action is the only response to that, in the case of race, because White and Asian people can get past their negative self-conceptions while other races are incapable.
Unsubstantiated claims following a logically established framework does not make those claims logical by extension.
Are you kidding me?? I could not get through one lecture. This is from the Dark Ages. Stereotypes lecture was so outdated.
