Subtitles on Someone with an Accent

It’s no secret that white people be racist. That’s why you always see subtitles on someone with an accent on PBS/Discovery Channel documentaries. There will an esteemed professor from an acclaimed universe talking about the nature of black holes in perfect English, albeit with a slight German accent, and the network will slap on a bunch of subtitles because they think you have no idea what he’s saying. He’s still speaking English and I understand English so they don’t need to degrade him with unnecessary subtitles. Save the subtitles for the ones speaking in a foreign language, not for all foreigners. Nobody wants to read when they’re watching TV anyway.
