Week 2 : Oscars So White

White Privilege

A little context of why#oscarssowhite isn’t just a petty complaint. Racism is so embedded within our society that it’s hard for people to realize.

“…most whites insist that minorities (especially blacks) are the ones responsible for whatever ‘race problem’ we have in this country. They publicly denounce blacks for ‘playing the race card,’ for demanding the maintenance of unnecessary and divisive race-based programs, such as affirmative action, and for crying ‘racism’ whenever they are criticized by whites.” (Racism without “Racists”; page 1; Bonilla-Silva) #WhitePrivilege #SystemicRacism #Saucedo
