On March 23, 2010, I gave a presentation at Nerd Nite in Washington, DC. The promo read: “No matter how funky Justin Timberlake is, races are not genetic categories. As the great sociologists Rodgers and Hammerstein averred, ‘You’ve got to be carefully taught.’ Hurray for education in the USA! Racial stereotypes seem to be one of the few things that almost every American learns, making race socially but not genetically ‘real.’ We’ll consider all that, including who can jump.”
My wife spontaneously recorded the proceedings using her camera, and I mixed the recording with the slideshow. To meet YouTube’s specifications, I’ve sliced four minutes from the original epic. Alas, the audio takes a turn for the worse around 11:41, but it’s still intelligible.
