I’ve seen a lot of this in the media lately and a lot of it on tumblr too.
Sometimes it honestly does feel like we’re being made to feel quilty about being white, like it’s some genetic advantage, is that not a bit racist in itself? Does the term “White Privilege” not sound racist too? although based on the shit I’ve heard lately, it’s probably not possible to be racist towards white people.
I could talk about this all day, but I have difficulty articulating it in a written format that I’m happy sharing.
Anyways, I think this article is fucking brilliant read and it does show how incredibly stupid, naive and short sighted some people and media organisations are (although I do believe their actions are good at heart, well, people more-so than media organisations). It reminds me of the white guy teaching black history in How High.
