Tim Wise on White Privilege
Racism, White Denial & the Costs of Inequality


For years, acclaimed author and speaker Tim Wise has been electrifying college campuses with his impassioned and deeply personal take on whiteness and white privilege. In this spellbinding lecture, the author of the bestselling White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son offers a powerful inside-out look at race and racism in America, surveying the damage white privilege has done not only to people of color, but to white people themselves. The result is a vivid and accessible introduction to the social construction of racial identities, and a critical new educational tool for exploring the often invoked, but seldom explained, concept of white privilege.

Sections: Introduction | The Erasure of Politics & Culture | White Denial | Unburdened by Race | The Creation of Whiteness: How Race Was Used to Hide Class | Privilege & Pathology | Guilt & Responsibility
