The Rules: Making sense of race and privilege by Lawrence Otis Graham

In this article, writer, attorney, and Princeton U. alumnus, Lawrence Graham, uses a recent encounter his 15-year-old son faced to make it very clear how active racism still is in our society.  His and his wife’s set of rules for behavior for their children are a worthy companion to Peggy MacIntosh’s “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Backpack.”  The comments are also well worth reading.
