G & T 1: Outliers, Chapter Seven

Chapter seven, The Ethnic Theory of Plane Crashes, is probably one of my favorite chapters in Outliers. It's supremely eye-opening and really speaks to the depths and implications of our cultural legacies.

A few questions for you to answer in a blog post:
1) Briefly summarize chapter seven. (I know that this was a very long chapter, but do your best to remain concise, hitting on the main points.)
2) What lesson(s) can you take away from reading chapter seven?
3) Update your understanding of your own cultural legacy to include communication patterns/habits.

I look forward to our conversation about this chapter and also to you reenacting the transcript details from Avianca 052.
