Waking Up to White Supremacy

Can we really let ourselves fathom what white supremacy means? For those of us who are considered “white,” everything we have is made possible by this massive ignorance of our supremacy. Every dollar, every convenience, our relative sense of safety, belonging, freedom, ease, comfort are taken for granted. We don’t even notice those things, because white supremacy tells us we deserve them, and we have come to expect them. How can we change our awareness, and how will this new awareness affect our lives?

Start the new year with a fresh commitment to advancing the cause of racial justice. Come to our Continuing Conversation on Race and White Privilege this coming Monday, January 4, 2016 at the Princeton Public Library, 65 Witherspoon Street from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. to listen, learn, and talk openly with others striving to move racial justice forward.  Never been?  Come at 6:45 pm to ask any questions you may have about the process. Bring a friend!

  1. “White Supremacy” is a perjorative term that some of us have a hard time accepting. If you search on “Peggy McIntosh” on this blog you will get links to previous posts that may help explain why this term has resonance.
