At times of injustice, we need to show solidarity, educate ourselves and do our best to learn about people’s suffering.

In this episode, I offer a short lesson that will help you navigate the current discourse about social justice and racism in English.

I also want to offer food for thought, talking about diversity among YouTube’s English teachers.

Would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

  1. Nice topic and excellent delivery. This is important to know these vocubalery in business world and international travelers. Some time in business world it’s observable i.e. like when people travels on job and initial days struggle to settle with native speakers.

    Some time I feel in global industry the racism and discrimination happens because of job market uncertainty and fear of future job security. Native people fear for their kids future, competition arising because of people migrating for jobs and culture changing surrounding them.
    Today global industry and culture is changing rapidly because of peoples social life and communication are more on the social networking sites. These online social sites not only changing the thinking at global level but building new world called tech savvy scoial world. I think these sites are reducing the discrimination problems by invoking global openion and other countries invovling in part of moral support in the protests.

    Cheers Pat

  2. Ma,am, please tell me how to understand native English language .IAM VIKKI bhardvaj from India,mob,8953984466.

  3. I have seen that many people is confuse about what’s happening in America. Racism exist in all races. There is suppose to be only the human race but that’s a lie. (In my opinion.)
    I’m not racist, but I’m I sure?
    What I want to say is we something mes say things that may be racist. For example in my country many people believe Chinese can’t drive well. Some believe Latino work too much to the point to be self exploited. Many other have the idea that white people are nice o black people is bad. As a Hispanic people think I’m Mexican. Well the por not is that between us we may have prejudice toward other races. I forgot about Jews. I’m not going to comment about them.
    So to the point. In USA the protests are about police brutality and the killing of black people by the police are they are not judge nor investigated. The system in USA in my opinion is corrupt. People don’t have a chance to defend when in court. Black and Hispanic many time have to declare no contest before the judge. That means you don’t declare yourself innocent nor guilty. And so on.

  4. Thank you so much Teacher. I used to have a mindset that native English speakers are always better than other whose first language is not English. This video reminds me of having different accent does not meant he or she is better or not.

    Thanks.

  5. Hi Hadar !
    Thank you for the video. The subject I know quite in details. Gordon W. Alport’s “basic” book, “The Nature of Prejudice full edition” has been since decades one of my “Bibles”. (I included in my graduation in psychiatry the Social Psychiatry – particularly the Social Perception.)
    However, your video helps to make alive well known knowledge. I wonder. why responsible people don’t apply tachistoscopic tests to check for instance members of police. Even in the time of Gordon, the racist traits could be quantitatively spotted by tachistoscope investigation. Just, like cardiac problems by EKG. Laszlo

  6. Some times. We the Latin (No all of us} criticize Anglo American of being racists cause some of them discriminate black people but what about Latin Mix with European some of them discriminate Native Indians

  7. Hi, my name is Bartolomeu and I am a Brazilian retired Math teacher, aged 88.
    In my point of view you are an excellent teacher in spite of not beeing a native English speaker. Your pronunciation is perfect.
    I’ve learned a lot from your videos. Thank you very much!
    Well, regarding to social justice (or injustice)
    I’d tell you that in my country there isn’t officially, any kind of discrimination.
    However housekeepers for example are not allowed to use social elevators and there are in all housings separated service areas including bathrooms.
    Moreover, people who live in the slums of big cities are unfairly treated by the police when not killed.
    Best regards!
    Barto.
