This is a solo episode where I discuss something called The Arrogance of Dismissal. I got the term from an interview DJ Vlad did with Pras, formerly of the Fugees. It’s a concept that describes why white people often fall prey to cultural phenomenons that are utterly predictable and avoidable, but keep making the same mistakes due to a blind spot in their analysis that comes from a cognitive bias created by white supremacy that keep them from learning from examples that involve nonwhite people
