Timeline of John McWhorter

2017

In January 2017, McWhorter was one of the speakers in the Linguistic Society of America’s inaugural Public Lectures on Language series.

2015

In April 2015, McWhorter appeared on NPR and said that the use of the word “thug” was becoming code for “the N-word” or “black people ruining things” when used by whites in reference to criminal activity. He added that use by President Obama and former Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake (for which she later apologized) could not be interpreted in the same way, given that the black community’s use of “thug” may positively connote admiration for black self-direction and survival. McWhorter clarified his views in an article in the Washington Post.

2013

McWhorter has published a number of books on linguistics and on race relations, of which the better known are Power of Babel: A Natural History of Language, Our Magnificent Bastard Tongue: The Untold History of English, Doing Our Own Thing: The Degradation of Language and Music and Why You Should, Like, Care, and Losing the Race: Self-Sabotage in Black America. He makes regular public radio and television appearances on related subjects. He is interviewed frequently on National Public Radio and is a frequent contributor on Bloggingheads.tv including ten years of discussions with Glenn Loury. He has appeared twice on Penn & Teller: Bullshit!, once in the profanity episode in his capacity as a linguistics professor, and again in the slavery reparations episode for his political views and knowledge of race relations. He has spoken at TED (2013, 2016), has appeared on The Colbert Report and Real Time with Bill Maher, and appeared regularly on MSNBC’s Up with Chris Hayes.
