Transcript of whiteness

"If man is to survive, he will have learned to take a delight
in the essential differences between men and between cultures.
He will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes
are a delight, part of life's exciting variety, not something to fear."
-Gene Roddenberry Racism is the belief that race is a primary determinant of human traits and capacities and those racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race. Or, on the opposite side, racism can be described as the belief that a certain race or races portray undesirable characteristics Macaelagh Coyle

-RESPECT for others is vital. Getting to know the "other" is an important way
to gain equality. It can lead to an integration which comes naturally, due to
mutual respect and genuine interest in other cultures. In a meeting with Dr. Redd..... "My stepfather tells alot of racist jokes...
Usually I say something about it, because it makes me uncomfortable.
I am offended that he thinks that when he is in my presence, he is
in a 'safe zone' to exhibit his racism." 'SAY SOMETHING' ASSIGNMENT fOR ME, QUESTIONING RACIAL STEREOTYPES CAME AS A LEARNING PROCESS THAT JUST SORT OF 'HAPPENED.'
iT WASNT A PROCESS THAT I SOUGHT OUT. White, female, American, Irish, Catholic, heterosexual...
*"insider groups" i belong to* experience with those outside
of my insider groups led to a
questioning process Ex: Mosetta, Luzana, Morgan My life: speaking up: All i can do is hope that "saying something"
is making at least a small difference.
