Also, you'd think America was 50% unmistakably Black.
Younger audiences are predominantly urban and non-white.
If you were an alien gauging the USA from TV, you'd think less than 5% of the USA was White, and almost all were goofy hipsters.Also, you'd think America was 50% unmistakably Black.
I saw a Black guy a few years ago, on one of those man-in-the-streets kind of interviews, say that he was certain that half the population was Black. He was an Army vet and resident of a Black neighborhood in a city with a large Black minority. He didn’t seem like an idiot or an asshole, but he had never been educated in the correct statistic, and he refused to believe the interviewer when informed of the correct number.I saw another street interview that showed a Black man’s utter ignorance on the historical universality of human slavery. He kept saying that the White man invented slavery in reference to the Atlantic Slave Trade. These people have been miseducated and generally misinformed, intentionally or not.
