Gendercast Episode 11: Examining Privilege
Dialogue and discussion of privilege in regards to race, class, ability and gender. Join us in a sometimes difficult conversation around white privilege [and the importance of owning our own] as we discuss bell hooks' poignant writing on white supremacy, women of color feminism and the importance of an anti-racist agenda as a fundamental foundation to any movement of social justice. We also discuss this as it relates to the trans/gnc movement, cisgender privelege and binary supremacy.
bell hooks' book killing rage: Ending Racism we read, referenced and quoted. Thanks to bell for providing a foundation for examining and studying white privilege, here is the short youtube video of bell we also referenced
We referenced some of the white privilege checklist items from the blog article White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack
The blog Is Privilege Offensive? regarding experiencing privilege and oppression for different aspects of one's identity, at the same time. The article is from the blog Love Isn't Enough: on raising a family in a colorstruck world
Gender Odyssey is August 5-7, 2011 in Seattle [Sean and Jessie, hosts of Gendercast will be attending]
