Analysis of Relationships

Exer. I


The article spoke about an experiment tat was onducted here in the United States. The purpose of the experiment was to see if a group of people could distinguish between a black person or a white person's voice. According to the article they could not. A point was proven by this experiment & that was that there are differences people normally "assign" to blacks and whites in the way they speak.People usualy assume they can tell the difference between a white person and a black person just by the sound of thier voice. Not so in this case being that the whites i this experiments whose voice they heard grew up around blacks and the blacks they heard grew up around whites.
