Tim Wise: On White Privilege

I am REALLY starting to like this guy. Here he speaks not only of the origins of the elite fabricating non-existent barriers between the races, he implores us to rise above the facade. "The people united, will never be defeated"!! "The people united, will never be defeated"!!

From the DVD:The Pathology of Privilege Racism, White Denial & the Costs of Inequality

For years, acclaimed author and speaker Tim Wise has been electrifying audiences on the college lecture circuit with his deeply personal take on whiteness and white privilege. In this spellbinding lecture, the author of White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son offers a unique, inside-out view of race and racism in America. Expertly overcoming the defensiveness that often surrounds these issues, 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 invaluable classroom resource: an ideal introduction to the social construction of racial identities, and a critical new tool for exploring the often invoked - but seldom explained - concept of white privilege.
