Mike Prochaska & Andrew talk about the possibly racist use of subtitles when people have heavy accents in a documentary. Turn up the volume on your documentaries and make sure to leave us a message about anything you think is racist at (323) 389-RACE

I've noticed subtitles in reality shows where the person isn't properly miked, but if it's a talking head, yeah, that's kind of weird. Just turn the closed captioning on if you really need help.
