The Cost of Privilege: Taking on the System of White Supremacy and Racism

John Riley interviews author Chip Smith and researcher Juliet Ucelli on their new book, “The Cost of Privilege: Taking on the System of White Supremacy and Racism.” They discuss the material, political and moral costs of the system of white supremacy in the US historically, up to the present day. Chip Smith & Juliet Ucelli examine how since the 1960s, consciousness of the existence of racism has declined, while actual disparities have grown larger and the need to fight racism and white privilege in order to reinvigorate the social justice movement and the struggle to build a just socialist system in the US.
