In his lecture “White Like Me,” Tim Wise shares a personal examination of the way in which racial privilege shapes the lives of white North Americans in every realm of daily life: employment, education, housing, criminal justice and elsewhere. Using stories from his own life, Tim Wise demonstrates the ways in which racism not only burdens people of color, but also benefits in relative terms, those who are “white like him.” Wise also discusses the ways in which racial privilege can harm whites in the long run and make progressive social change less likely. Wise weaves a narrative that is at once accessible and yet scholarly.
