White Privilege

LINKOne “diversity” document linked to DPI’s Web site suggests that white people “wear a white wristband as a reminder about your privilege, and as a personal commitment to explain why you wear the wristband.”

The document -- written by a diversity resource center in New Jersey -- also suggests that white people ask themselves questions, such as: “How do I ignore privilege? What am I doing today to undo my privilege? How do I fool myself into thinking I am powerless?”

Other suggestions for white people include:

-- Set aside sections of the day to critically examine how privilege is working.
-- Put a note on your mirror or computer screen as a reminder to think about privilege.
-- Make a daily list of the ways privilege played out, and steps taken or not taken to address privilege.
-- Find a person of color who is willing to hold you accountable for addressing privilege.

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction is the state agency that advances public education and libraries in Wisconsin.

We are so screwed up as a country

I couldn't find a person of color to help me out in this area, but one of the atlanta posters (he has a WWII naval aviator as his avitar) is very helpful.

re: White Privilege
How would a "person of color" be able to hold me accountable without the experience of white privelage?

Haven't seen anything from him in a couple of weeks.





He might be out shopping for wristbands.

Well, young white people do get the 20K 'start up money.' That's definitely white privilege.

It was in a college class discussing race issues. Black girl said "Whites get start up money when they get married."
Prof: "What's that?'
Girl: "20K to start up with expenses and a down payment on a house."
Prof: "Who in here has heard of this white start up money?"
All the black kids raised their hand. The whites were like "WTF?"

Reminds me of the old SNL skit where Eddie Murphy dressed up like a white man for a day, and found he could go into stores and people would just give him whatever he wanted for free.

re: White Privilege
We might need to see this program adopted by FedGov as an initiative to promote equality and harmony.

The potential for massive FedGov intrusion into private life and the private economy is interesting. Combine this with total FedGov control over the healthcare industry, and, we have tremendous potential for a truly massive FedGov.

Maybe then, the Lesson will be learned.
