Tim Wise on white privilege
Summary:Tim Wise offers a unique, inside-out view of race and racism in America. Wise provides a non-confrontational explanation of white privilege and the damage it does not only to people of color, but to white people as well. This is an introduction to the social construction of racial identities, and a new tool for exploring the often invoked--but seldom explained--concept of white privilege.
Description:Contents: Introduction -- The erasure of race in politics & culture -- White denial -- Unburdened by race -- The creation of whiteness : how race was used to hide class -- Privilege & pathology -- Guilt & responsibility.
