SkillShops: Discussing White Privilege

Library Fishbowl
This is the beginning of an ongoing conversation about whiteness and white privilege at HSU and in our communities which began over the summer. These discussions are intended to inform people about the issues surrounding whiteness (white privilege, white fragility, white spaces, etc.) and to bring up questions and challenge us about our role in our communities and in our day-to-day lives.

These discussions are uncomfortable and challenging by design- beware of triggers and emotionally-charged content. However, you are encouraged to get uncomfortable. By engaging in these honest discussions you will exercise your 'racial stamina' and become more comfortable with being uncomfortable.

Each discussion is focused around a set of readings, videos and/or audio. Please come to the session prepared to discuss the issues as presented in the assigned resources. This week's resources:
Watch: What does white privilege mean to you? (http://projects.seattletimes.com/2016/under-our-skin/#white_privilege) (7m segment of the Seattle Times' Under Our Skin interview series)
