Challenging Media reports "From the DVD: The Pathology of Privilege Racism, White Denial & the Costs of Inequality For years, acclaimed author and speaker Tim Wise has been electrifying audiences on the college lecture circuit with his deeply personal take on whiteness and white privilege. In this spellbinding lecture, the author of White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son offers a unique, inside-out view of race and racism in America. Expertly overcoming the defensiveness that often surrounds these issues, Wise provides a non-confrontational explanation of white privilege and the damage it does not only to people of color, but to white people as well. This is an invaluable classroom resource: an ideal introduction to the social construction of racial identities, and a critical new tool for exploring the often invoked - but seldom explained - concept of white privilege.

I found this to be quiet interesting
I have a feeling that this video wont remain for very long, but will soon have a "video has been removed" on it, so for anyone interested, you should watch it while you can

Give Thanks for posting this brethren, it was really interesting to watch; he touched on so many things. Throughout I kept wondering what the audience were thinking; it was as though he was holding up a mirror to them to say look at how ugly your actions and those of your forefathers are.
