As a proud son of Berkeley, California I can’t help but talk about white privilege, even if I am myself white, and privileged, and for that matter, male. I watched the Green Book the other day, which depicts something that actually happened, although of course it’s Hollywood so it’s all wrong, didn’t happen quite that way – whatever. The point is, there was really a Green Book, and events like those depicted in the movie did happen, AND it wasn’t that long ago – 55 years? Lots of people who could be reading this were alive back then. Yes, all that happened, and it’s still happening, albeit in altered ways, all these years later. I share a couple experiences I’ve had with white privilege in this video – and a very recent one at that. And I also talk about the language written into the CC&Rs of many, many properties right here in California which says that nobody other than a member of the caucasian or white race may own or live in the property, etc. So enjoy my little contribution to our national discussion on white privilege.
