Event Description

White Like Me (2013, 69 min)  is a documentary that explores race and racism in the U.S. through the lens of whiteness and white privilege. In a striking reassessment of the American ideal of meritocracy and the claim that we've entered a post-racial society, anti-racist educator and author Tim Wise offers a look back at the race-based white entitlement programs that built the American middle class. He then argues that our failure as a society to come to terms with this legacy of white privilege continues to perpetuate racial inequality and race-driven political resentments today. Wise describes how white privilege continues to shape individual attitudes, electoral politics, and government policy in ways too many white people never stop to think about.
