Hear My True Story
Language as Racism. „Linguistic Profiling.“
Show Notes


In this episode, we have a conversation with Edwin Matovu in which we share our personal experiences with learning a new language. We have to speak a German language fluently, and sometimes we expose ourselves by speaking German with a Ugandan accent. As a result, people like us are less likely to be hired, accepted into schools and universities, or considered as tenants. This practice is called linguistic profiling. 


On the Hear My True Story Podcast, we tell our own True Stories through storytelling, spoken word, comedy, music, hosted interviews, and conversations based on real experiences. You don't have to be a storyteller or writer because, "Life writes the best stories!"Support  Donations <
