Tim Wise: White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son | Talks at Google (Videos)

Description

Tim Wise, anti-racist activist and author of White Like Me, talks to Google about addressing and deconstructing racism in institutions. Using Silicon Valley as an example he asks, is it a true meritocracy and is racism/sexism operating here? Ways in which racism is perpetuated: 1. Myth of Personal Objectivity vs. How we actually evaluate other people using Fit and Credentials/Qualifications. We tend to see merit in someone who looks more like us. 2. Myth of Institutional Objectivity vs. Positional good where systemic advantages inherited, opportunities, job networking contribute. 3. Colorblind formalism is a formulaic way in which we say we don't see/think about color. We miss a lot when we say that because we live in a world where color matters a lot.
