White America


Recommended Posts

Most of us have a decent amount of free time on our hands. If so, I recommend this podcast:

@All Hail this dovetails a little into our conversation about the donor preferences in giving to Stanford university.  A public school gets an influx of white patents, and they bring a non-PTA fundraising model to the school that’s rife with elitism that doesn’t benefit the (majority) minority population at the school.   (In this case, an influx of white parents wanted a French program for a public middle school....the school, of course, needed lots of stuff; supplies, uniforms, equipment etc.   but the donors insisted it all go to the French program, which also happened to be majority white.)

 

Mostly, tho, it’s about white obliviousness, which might be a more accurate and less offensive term to white people than “privilege”.
