  • today I'm in an area I'm gonna tap that's next to Brighton called Hove it's

  • quite different to like the main variety one it's much quieter and two I can see

  • my god I left so much tea I hate seeing people waste food

  • baby no it's to Carvey I think that's why I'm

  • really yeah last time I was fine bread in basically bread but I had like that

  • people yeah I've been here before pretty good lost three bangin next time

  • say going to foster bird not really I haven't really like aimed in my face

  • this is brian at night guys it's amazing what's gonna pier people appear kind of

  • no not really we were just talking about racism of

  • course again my friend Tamannah and Londi are like the best

  • conversations have racism about come they didn't get it yeah I know about it

  • as I do know you yeah yeah we were just saying was a

  • Donzi so we were saying we're just saying oh my god did you see that thing

  • about where something I don't know what newspaper it was ghost or Museum bukkake

  • mix-up and it actually ended up getting published for the newspapers on a

  • national newspaper basically I mean I know that people are gonna be upset that

  • I've said this but it's the insinuation there's no more black people at the same

  • and the fact that nobody in that crew was able to see that that was wrong even

  • though it was their front page than no one was able to pick that up just kind

  • of perpetuates this idea that we all are the same and we're not and basically the

  • question is would that have happened if it was too wise liberties mm-hmm I'm

  • just wondering but like I think the debate people will say is I understand

  • why that is racism please it's Garin well because a similar

  • thing happened to me where I was a volunteer at this hospital in London for

  • over two years a very famous in London impact and when I left they asked me to

  • write a thought thank you report was something about my

  • time yeah yeah for a news better thing and then I did and then they asked for a

  • photo by never sent it to them so what happened was I found the newsletter

  • being posted and we can read innocence

  • and I found this newsletter wife enjoy up so my piece of work that I had is

  • really lovely heart felt like letter I wrote is a picture of another woman and

  • I feel something like a fellow yellow arms it was not me I was like is that me

  • they should got my phone now she looks I specify I still have it on my phone

  • because I like to keep it to show other people she did not like you just like 40

  • other things thank you either I'm going that is not

  • me I feel like over two years please call me like every day for a year

  • but did you ever live so my face

  • and there are people is this or is this not great I got a lot of very mixed ed

  • to know the thing is I can kind of see both sides are the lighting is off

  • well I can see most people's points yeah about it's not being raised

  • they depend on people's definitions are very exactly so although he's like II

  • apologize it was like it was not intentional and there's nothing

  • malicious about it yeah my pictures we made him he just made a mistake

  • yeah but it suggested something deeper which I couldn't describe yeah but when

  • people asked why was it racism I didn't know how to explain yeah

  • while my take on it would be that my definition so the sociological

  • definition my own stand of racism is that there is an internal societal

  • construct against people and that is basically the definition

  • that creates life basically I understand Ray's move on because it means that you

  • don't like everybody seems to think that it's kind of like kicking people trying

  • to shout people out of the country being angry being malicious and serene way

  • sure but it's not always aggression like that's not the only form the other form

  • that is way more subtle that tomorrow is reserved we're talking about is the one

  • that and it's super insidious because of it is the one where people are just

  • ignorant in we did this once at the Harvard test or something an implicit

  • test and we you know even there is in especially you know UK media release

  • that's all we can speak we're probably on us media there is a negative

  • association towards black people and also towards people are driving there's

  • also negative implication towards people who aren't white basically and people

  • just associate negativity with people of color and it's not and it's not even

  • like I'm blaming anyone for it because the thing is why the implicit it's

  • completing Blissett a lot of the time and why did that touch myself and I even

  • apparently had like implicit negative associations with black people but yeah

  • I did I don't I came up on that which is really good but I can

  • understand that flows waste is appraised in a very like what area so it doesn't

  • yeah they'll surprise me at all okay and I think that what you have to

  • do like it's to understand racism you have to accept that it's not necesarily

  • yeah and you're not it's not not not a barrier it's not this very mean yeah you

  • don't necessarily mean it that's the other thing it's like you know you can

  • be unaware that these things are happening and it's okay all I'm ever

  • really trying to do is encourage the awareness of it I'm just trying to tell

  • people or like help people understand that what you're doing is discriminatory

  • in whichever way basically like very good intention exactly unlike you you

  • don't you know maybe you do feel bad whether it's intentional or

  • unintentional like what if is unintentional I can understand why you'd

  • feel bad and that's why I think a lot people are like you know on the races on

  • the races because you don't feel these bad things about these being advocate is

  • connotation to the work these Diaries but it doesn't you have to understand

  • that your feelings do not always control your actions there are things that you

  • do that have ingrained within you because of the

  • society in the welcome you men and it's important to then become aware of that

  • and then to I do think try to do things that stop you from being that person

  • because it does affect other people even it in a way in like if you really are

  • racist then you shouldn't want to make people of color feel any less than you

  • in any way so if they're telling you that's

  • something that is affecting them like you know using the n-word just because

  • it's in a song if somebody of color tells you that that's not it offends

  • them that should be a signal view not to argue with them and say yeah well jay-z

  • said it and it's in a song and all these white kids are saying they you should be

  • saying actually I understand that you are not comfortable with that word

  • because of the years and years of history and negative connotations our

  • house

  • like the face being might not be able to distinguish between them

  • other people's yeah all right quiet hard one to cover like without rain

  • yeah because if you're not being exposed to peep through like other people you

  • are less likely going to be able to less exposed to it that's not necessary

  • there's oh yeah yeah I'm not the thing we're not standing there saying your

  • racism Jelena you it's like actually the actions that you are taking can be taken

  • in a very specific way which can be quite offensive to people maybe to

  • change that people need something is some kind of like slight on their

  • character and mores like an educational point if that makes them because they

  • don't even know who they don't look the same

  • similar you would say yeah baby maybe quite a funny this they don't look

  • alike at all like me and not have a lady old lady issues like she look like she's

  • posing with me ever again going great do you want to see that my

  • show I don't want to show it because I want to put yeah who she is we can't ask

  • for a permission I I'll show you again yeah go on

  • she hasn't the light series I remember and she's just as a live one for

  • mother's grave so that's why I'm 58

  • I still keep this to this day it's been like two years yeah it was judge Manning

  • point oh my god do we look alike the reason I can confirm that you do not

  • look like I must still have the report oh my god but I've been a volunteer at

  • blood for blood for two years now and it makes me incredibly sad to be leaving

  • picture of a person that is not mean is now 2017 I don't have this photo to this

  • day because I like going around showing

  • hurry it's me and it's guy he saw me at least once a month we very much

  • recognizing faces I think she was why I'm not showing to make the same mistake

  • would take my it's just a question it's just a question you know but I mean I

  • talked about people I always memory yeah it just believed depends on your

  • definition of racism but the one I use is the one that sociologists have agreed

  • of the correct it's the correct definition and it's to do with the

  • societal impact of being a different color basically and how the system is

  • like a systemic issue that basically favors white people and doesn't help

  • people of color and that's what I've learned to be

  • going into arguable about

  • yeah I can't on to raise my I feel like that is a definition of specific to

  • do you know I mean and also I think like it's that definition doesn't so what

  • people can still be prejudiced and this criminal three two people people is that

  • Walter White because people always like what you thought you you can definitely

  • be racist white people and I'm like given that just like sociological

  • definition I don't think you can be my aunt is it's always been definition so

  • yes you can still be prejudiced towards them and you can still discriminate

  • against people color can discriminate against white people would be really

  • rude and not a malicious or unintentionally you know trying try and

  • like not be friends with them or they you know they don't think that way about

  • my people and I couldn't even encourage that like it's not I think everyone you

  • know at the end of the day what we're saying is that it's the systemic effect

  • so we're not talking even really about people to people we're talking about

  • being able to get jobs feels like job in the taxi the differences in like

  • opportunities in education like those are things that we don't realize the

  • systemic and they might look like people in prison who are white or like

  • that kind of thing we're talking about those engines

  • so I do all the time okay before I end this video there are a few more things I

  • want to add this whole phase concept thing was bothering me so I did some

  • research and found something called the upper race effect the other race effect

  • is a bias but people have difficulty recognizing faces of other races

  • compared to their own race this is a well-documented phenomenon which has

  • been found in many research studies however the exact mechanisms to why this

  • happens is unclear there is debate about whether this other race effect as a

  • result of nature or nurture are we biologically wired to be bad at

  • recognizing faces that are a different race to our own or is it due to

  • environmental influences where people tend to have more contact with people of

  • the same race as them so they are therefore better at recognizing faces

  • who are of the same race research investigating the other race affecting

  • infants have found that newborns didn't show any looking preferences towards a

  • little group but between 3 to 9 months of age babies start to show a looking

  • preference to faces of their own racial group compared to other races studies

  • have also shown that people tend to post the faces of the same race holistically

  • and process other race faces featural II what this basically means is that when

  • the person is the same race they tend to perceive the face as a whole but if

  • there are different races they tend to just focus partially on certain features

  • which is suggested to be why they fail to remember them however does this

  • depend on how much interaction they have had with other races 3 month old infants

  • were black and were raised by families who were also black believed in

  • abdominally white community did not show any preference for black or white faces

  • studies looking at Koreans adopted by French families were also better at

  • recognizing European faces than Korean faces Asian people had frequent

  • interactions with white people and Asian people were found to process both faces

  • more holistically compared to white people who had less interactions of

  • Asian people and tended to process their faces featuring to me this all suggests

  • that lack of exposure and interact of other races causes this other race

  • effect interestingly a study has shown that this other race effect can be

  • reduced with the use of training by motivating others to process phases at

  • an individual level rather than at a group level why people were trained to

  • memorize different phases of black people and nodes that were trained to

  • remember the phases at an individual level

  • remember the phases much better than those trained to remember the phases at

  • a categorical level the study also found that white participants who initially

  • had a negative implicit racial bias towards black people were able to reduce

  • their implicit biases after this training this not only suggests this

  • other race effect can change but it also shows we can reduce existing negative

  • implicit biases about certain racial groups being able to recognize faces is

  • an important social skill we all use in daily life it can have potential serious

  • consequences it might be embarrassing and offensive if this guy for me for

  • like two years and was still unable to recognize my face and I am assuming he

  • did not have a face blindness disorder but it's life-changing when people make

  • these mistakes during eyewitness testimonies how many people have been

  • wrongly sentenced to prison because of this alpha race effect in the United

  • States it has been reported that 40 percent of 330 cases had been a result

  • of mistaken cross-racial identification aka this other race effect so is this

  • racism I don't know I don't even know what racism is anymore how do we even

  • define racism but we can definitely reduce this other race effect by

  • creating meaningful relationships with different types of people from all races

  • so off you go and make friends with people who'll colors I don't know what

  • else I can really say but I just hope you can learn from this information and

  • from this video and that it has given you a new perspective thinking about

  • certain things and maybe you've learnt some big ins on make your phone so I'm

  • just going to end it here thank you for watching and I will see you guys next

  • time bye

this is my life now all I do is work sleep eat cook eat sleep sleep work end
