Brainwashing

Posted by Jack Stephens on November 16, 2007

Donna blogs on white privilege and male supremacy effecting bloggers in their thinking and interactions with each other. Here is one small piece of her blog post:

…all of us in American society are brainwashed by white supremacy/male supremacy to some extent. Projektleiteren doesn’t notice that she is expecting us to treat whites better than they treat us, because it is “natural” to see them as superior and therefore grant them more benefit of the doubt, chances, understanding, etc than they ever grant to us. If you think I am being sarcastic, you’d be wrong. We do get so used to being treated like we are wrong, like our opinion doesn’t matter, like we don’t know ourselves and our own families, lives, world; all of these things contribute to internalized racism. You know the grass is green and the sky is blue, but daily it seems like everyone else around you is saying the grass is purple and the sky is yellow. You may start to question your reality, believe that they are right and there is something wrong with you…
