White Privilege

Posted on January 22, 2008. Filed under: cultural, educational |

We discussed in my Educational Foundations class today what it means for us as white people to have privileges over other cultures.  I was amazed at how much I was a fish in water and couldn’t see what was going on because I am the privileged group. I don’t know if I can come to any conclusions of what I think or how I can deal with this as a teacher in a classroom yet.  But slowly I am being changed to see the real world and the racism that is still alive and prevalent today.  This is a YouTube video I found that just begins to talk about what we discussed this evening.
