Race and privilige

I saw this courtesy of a friend of mine today:

It ties in well with a some previous posts of mine, so I wanted to include it here. I don’t agree with everything he says (there are some laws that are not just, and I think it’s also important to speak out even against those people we think we can never change), but it’s an important sentiment and he conveys it fairly well.

I have a copy of “White Teachers / Diverse Classrooms” sitting in storage. I never actually read it; perhaps I should.
