Wednesday, April 27, 2016 Sociology ▯ Midterm Review: White Like Me - White Like Me▯ • Tim Wise: from Nashville, Tennessee anti-racist, educator, author▯ • white people have privileges and while at Tulane, Wise realized that he had the privilege of being white, but still acknowledging racism ▯ David Duke: white supremacist and former KKK member, running for senator of • Louisiana ▯ - his supporters were people who thought the Civil Rights movement had gone too far and even though Duke lost, he received 60% of white vote▯ • its dangerous that white people are blind to their privileges and blind to racism▯ • In “Black Like Me” we find out that blacks are not treated like 2nd class people but more like 10th class▯ don’t ask what it’s like to be black, but ask what does it mean to be white?▯ • • when you're part of a dominant group, you don't worry about fitting into another culture▯ • social programs like job insurance helped everyone unless you were an agricultural or domestic worker, jobs that were held by colored people ▯ • GI Bill did not protect black veterans, only white veterans benefitted▯ • helping colored people is typically called welfare or reward ▯ • white people don't have to be worried about being racially profiled ▯ • colored people work harder to not live up to stereotypes▯ we live in a society with the legacy of in equality and where people are oblivious to • the fact that they have privileges▯ • people thought just because Obama became president our race problems were solved▯ • 85% of white people think that white and blacks have same opportunity and level or education▯ • there are more black people under correctional control than were enslaved during the height of slavery ▯ • “gains of colored people are costing white people” white people believe this ▯ 1 Wednesday, April 27, 2016 • sense that we’ve lost something American and people think we’re taxed too much▯ • Americans view welfare recipients as a black phenomena because thats what we see on TV, but welfare recipients are a majority white▯ • people think that people on welfare are moochers even though during the depression they were seen as victims of a system that failed them▯ white people will even take welfare away from other whites just because it could • benefit black people▯ • “we should try to be color blind” which is false we should be color conscious 2
