Have you ever met someone on the internet that you liked so much that you sometimes sit there and think “Oh man there are people who are lucky enough to see this person IN THE FLESH ON A REGULAR BASIS and I wonder if they realize how LUCKY they are”



researchers have found that, more often than not, african americans and women tend to minimize experiences of discrimination, subconsciously denying or knowingly ignoring bias. when other people mistreat them because they are black or female, they often find it less painful to heap blame on themselves than to acknowledge the racist or sexist animus that led to the situation.

for example, in a series of laboratory experiments, karen ruggiero of harvard university and her colleagues asked volunteer subjects to take a test. the experimenter informed the black research subject that one member of a panel of white judges would evaluate his or her test. the experimenter also confided that either none, some, or all of the members of the panel discriminate against blacks. similarly, in the gender study, women research subjects were told that one member of a panel of male judges would evaluate their test, and that either none, some, or all of the members discriminate against women.

after the test had presumably been graded by one of the panelists, the test booklet was returned to the subject with the grade f. subjects were then asked to complete measures that assess how they make sense of the feedback and how they feel about themselves. ruggiero and her colleagues found that although blacks and women sometimes perceived discrimination, they were more likely to minimize discrimination and to blame themselves for their failures.

a similar study with white males as the subjects had rather different findings. white males were substantially less likely to blame themselves and more likely to see discrimination as the reason for their poor performance.

So raise a glass to teenage girls for their linguistic innovation. It expands our expressive vocabulary, giving us new words and modes of expression. Speakers may nostalgically look to a previous golden era of English, but the truth is that Shakespeare’s English is an abomination of Chaucer’s English, which is an abomination of Beowolf’s. Language is inherently unstable. It’s in a constant state of flux, made and remade—stretched, altered, broken down and rearranged—by its speakers every day. Rather than a sign of corruption and disorder, this is language in its full vitality—a living, evolving organism.
