Just seen a trailer for what looks like an excellent programme on tv.
A class in a school. They separate out the white kids from the black kids, and ask them what it means to be black/white.
Needless to say, the black kids come up with a list as long as your arm, on what it means to be black.
The white group. however…what does it mean to be white…”nothing”.
For me, that says it all in a nutshell. Being white gives you the ability to take things for granted. Same as being male. Same, frankly, as having wealth or an education. Now, we can’t do anything about the body we were born into, except to realise that we might have automatic privileges.
So if you fancy pondering something later, I can think of worse things.
It’s tempting to knock the education systems these days but when they’re doing things like this, I applaud them.
