Speak October 3, 2008

This article is the best at illustrating white privilege I have ever read.  It looks at the presidential election through an anti-racism lens.  Read it if you are so moved.

It is titled, White Privilege, White Entitlement and the 2008 Election by Tim Wise.

I found it enlightening and powerful.  Edit to say thank you to Cindy for passing this along!

    Ooh, that was good. I think I might link to that too if I can get my act together and write something.
    Hope you’re all feeling better today. Maybe some nice Fall-ish activities will perk you up? Apple picking? If you think that might be too much, start by just eating an apple. Maybe that will help.

    If Obama doesn’t win, I’m going to be seriously depressed.
