White like me [DVD]
Print Location: E185.615.W56 2013 Resource contains video
White Like Me, based on the work of Tim Wise, explores race and racism in the US through the lens of whiteness and white privilege. In a reassessment of the American ideal of meritocracy and claims that we've entered a post-racial society, Wise offers a look back at the race-based white entitlement programs that built the American middle class, and 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.
