White Privilege on Exhibit

Posted by Jack Stephens on June 13, 2008

JJKissinger blogs:

The past few weeks have been absolutely absorbed by an idea that I came up with…an idea I’ve kind of been avoiding, actually. The idea I had was to create an exhibit that would visually and interactively educate people about the idea of White Privilege. Not an easy topic…hence the idea avoidance. But one day, early this quarter, I asked my partner Susie what she thought of the idea. Without missing a beat, she said “let’s do it…we HAVE to do it.” So we did!

…The planning process was intense, thoughtful, fascinating, challenging, and extremely eye-opening. In order for true racial reconciliation to take place on this campus, our majority-white population MUST consider the implications of our whiteness.

    Is the white daughter of West Virginia coal miner more “priveleged” than Barack Obama’s daughters because of her skin color?

  2. BoorishPeasant: In the context of class: no. In the context of skin color and social acceptance towards those whom are white in this country: Yes.
