4 Ways to Push Back Against Your Privilege -

4 Ways to Push Back Against Your Privilege - | AntiRacism & Privilege | Scoop.it
by Mia McKenzie I’ve often said that it’s not enough to acknowledge your privilege. And, in fact, that acknowledging it is often little more than a chance to pat yourself on the back for being so “aware.” What I find is that most of the time when people acknowledge their privilege, they feel really special about it, really important, really glad that something so significant just happened, and then they just go ahead and do whatever they wanted to do anyway, privilege firmly in place. The truth is that acknowledging your privilege means a whole lot of nothing much if...

BlackWhite Handshake

BlackWhite Handshake | AntiRacism & Privilege | Scoop.it

 

We’ve done posts in the past about the handshake dilemma between Black and White people. When Black people and White people introduce themselves to each other in the office, everyone pretty much sticks to the standard handshake (unless you work for some phone app development company where dudes where ironic t-shirts and everyone wears knitted hats all year. In which case, you can stick to the standard high five). But casual and social encounters between the two parties can result in a catastrophic collision of cultural courtesies.

Where “Old” and “New” World Color Meet in Multiracial Asian America

Where “Old” and “New” World Color Meet in Multiracial Asian America | AntiRacism & Privilege | Scoop.it

According to Rondilla & Spickard, colorism in Asia is less about wanting to look European and more a class imperative. “To be light is to be rich, for dark skin comes from working outside in the sun…the yearning to be light is a desire to look like rich Asians, not like Whites” (Rondilla & Spickard, 2007, p.4).... 


So what happens when huge numbers of Asian immigrants (430,000 in 2010) and students (6 in 10 international students are from Asia) start arriving Stateside and their colorist/class values meet US racism which has aggressively devalued and violently oppressed dark-skinned people for hundreds of years?
