IMPACT OF LINGUISTIC PROFILING

Linguistic profiling is a real issue, yet not many people are aware of it. When considering how to tackle this problem, we turned to humor. In the spirit of SNL using "Black Jeopardy" to confront racism, we created the satirical product, Vocal Cloak. It is a voice modulator that changes any accent into a non-threatening "white voice," sure to trick any racist on the other end.

It’s unacceptable to be judged based on skin color, the same with the way you speak. Problem is, many people aren’t even aware that they often subconsciously judge based on language. Let's take a deeper look at this issue.
