Short Accorn ,

Good Information with Racist Pseudoscience.

The first lecture presented evidences that self-imposed stereotypes can be harmful if the stereotype is harmful.
Interesting information.
However the presenter went on to argue that affirmative action is the only response to that, in the case of race, because White and Asian people can get past their negative self-conceptions while other races are incapable.
Unsubstantiated claims following a logically established framework does not make those claims logical by extension.
