Additional conversation starters: a YouTube video of a “Privilege Walk” exercise, called “What is Privilege?” This is the same experiment, but done in Singapore, a country with a very different ethnic/racial makeup than the US. This is the “White Privilege Checklist,” taken from a famous 1989 scholarly article. How many of these statements fit my life experience? A helpful article about White Privilege; and this White Privilege Handout. Also: Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man - this whole series is a great conversation starter; Wikipedia article on the Mark of Cain is mentioned in the sermon on Sept. 20; and PC(USA)'s Racial Justice Resources. And: www.snopes.com - The go-to website for fact checking. This website is a simple, formidable weapon against rumors and false claims. This article from the American Psychological Association is a great discussion starter. It discusses how to confront those awkward moments when someone says something hurtful. This article discusses how we can be allies in the struggle for equality and justice.
