Cord Jefferson (writer and West Coast editor at Gawker) joins Andrew Ti all this week to answer some racism questions. Today they talk about TV shows using unnecessary subtitling whenever people are speaking English with an accent. Be sure to call us at (323) 389-RACE to ask if anything is racist.

My wife has recently been on a "19 kids and counting" kick and they subtitle the younger children occasionally. I'm sure Duck Dynasty and Jersey Shore get subtitles pretty often as well.

Has anyone else had problems getting this episode to load? Tuesday went just fine, but I've tried this across three devices and the most progress I've made is it got to 7min then went choppy.
