    David Sirota: White Privilege and Mass Shootings

    In the aftermath of the Newtown shooting, David Sirota appeared on CNN to discuss the racial double standard evident in the way America reacts to crimes committed by white men.

This is a mandatory read.” — David Levering Lewis, Pulitzer Prize–winning author

    Freedom School: Living through the Guilt – Being White in America

    Growing up in privilege is not without its drawbacks. Being of European descent often means having to confront a past that is riddled with abuses of those who ‘got in the way’. There are several options open to a white person. The most popular is deliberate ignorance of the past coupled with a utopian belief that we live in a post racial world. The other option seems to be all too depressing: unremitting guilt. This session provides a third way […]
