Andrew Ti and this week’s special guest Milana Vayntrub end the week by talking about teachers using “these kids” to refer to their students and why Russian people are super racist. As always, leave us a message about anything you think is racist at (323) 389-RACE.

Andrew, since the week is over now, you did mess up her name in the beginning -- first and last.

I am black and a teacher. "These kids" is used to describe students in general, at least in my experience. I will say that it is generally used when you're describing students' behavior or performance negatively, but occasionally positively.
