High School Teacher Taught His Class A Simple Yet Powerful Lesson About Privilege

High School Teacher Taught His Class A Simple Yet Powerful Lesson About Privilege | Colorful Prism Of Racism |
If you're reading this, you probably have some privileges, which you're not aware that you have most of the times. What's more, probably you think so many things are for grantes: such is the nature of privilege.

It's a bit difficult to understand, even for adults. So, how to make kids in school aware of what they have? A teacher did it so simple, that everyone got it. Don't miss this lesson in pics!

RACE TRAITOR | The Point Is Not To Interpret Whiteness But To To Abolish It

RACE TRAITOR | The Point Is Not To Interpret Whiteness But To To Abolish It | Colorful Prism Of Racism |

Whiteness is not a culture. There is Irish culture and Italian culture and American culture - the latter, as Albert Murray pointed out, a mixture of the Yankee, the Indian, and the Negro (with a pinch of ethnic salt); there is youth culture and drug culture and queer culture; but there is no such thing as white culture. Whiteness has nothing to do with culture and everything to do with social position. It is nothing but a reflection of privilege, and exists for no reason other than to defend it. Without the privileges attached to it, the white race would not exist, and the white skin would have no more social significance than big feet.

If Only More Would Be This Aware & Ask

If Only More Would Be This Aware & Ask | Colorful Prism Of Racism |

I've read through your blog pretty extensively, and theres something I'd like to ask from a place of honesty and genuine desire to understand. A white man can never begin to understand the struggle of a person of color or the struggle of a woman against oppression, because he can never walk in that person's shoes. He can also never renounce the privilege that he has (simply because he exists) no matter the amount of self-educating he does. What, then, should he do to be an ally?

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Read her reply at her blog; she deserves the attention.
