Mark your calendar – Addicted to Race live call-in show this Tuesday!

Our next Addicted to Race live call-in show will happen this Tuesday, October 17 at 10 pm Eastern U.S. time. Make sure you mark your calendars!

We’ll be discussing the dangers of positive stereotypes. Why are we so quick to agree with positive stereotypes about our ethnic or racial group? How can we begin to see that these positive stereotypes exist at the expense of other groups? Are positive stereotypes just as harmful as negative stereotypes?

  1. dear addicted to race,
    tonight, I shared the segment of your podcast about reactions to jen’s jewishness to my confirmation class students– 9th grade hebrew school students. i was pleasantly suprised by their reactions to jen’s comments. some of them really identified with the rant– they stressed that though they are white and don’t face that question of their jewishness, they get questions and disbelief from people about their jewishness because of their last names (from non-jewish parents). some students also identified with having mixed half-siblings who might go through this as well. much of the class took a stance of, “its SO ignorant for people to not realize that there are asian jews and black jews and mixed jews! geeze!!” it was great to see the next generation more aware. there was one student who “just couldn’t imagine a black asian jew,” though it was great to watch her classmates articulate how this COULD indeed be the case– of their own accord. thank you for ranting and providing an effective tool for jewish educators like me to discuss the racial/ethnic diversity of the jewish people in a formal learning environment!

  2. I am listening to your discussion while typing the following few words. Thank you for shading light on these important issues.
    In response to the article in Business Week about how successful Indian Americans are, I have to say this. There is no doubt Indian ( East) Americans are very successful. About two thirds of Indian American adults have at least a bachelors degree which is no easy feat. The problem arises when you try to make a wholesale comparison of success in the Indian American community and success in other like African American communities. Most Indians come to the U.S. on a H1B visa or other forms of visas for professionals and technical experts. This process itself selects the best educated individuals that India has to offer. If they are really representative of the Indian population and culture of success(as the article in Business Week argued) then why do we have hundreds and hundreds millions of people living in Poverty in India? The fact that you have arrived on U.S. soil armed with a Phd gives you a head start on almost every one.
    Another way of looking at it is compare Africans who come through the same visa processes as Indians and African Americans. [There was one interesting peace on this on NPR]. Of course quite a significant proportion of these African immigrants are educated and successful. They too don’t represent the African population because they are a selected group. So as you rightly said in your broadcast, we should challenge these positive stereotypes as well as negative stereotypes.
