Video of the Week: Tim Wise on Racism

I have just started classes working towards my MSW (Master of Social Work). In my second class on Diversity, Marginalization and Oppression, we watched a chunk of this video.

This is so worth an hour of your time (worth more actually). Tim is spouting facts and logic mixed together in such a way that hopefully it can blow away any remaining roots that make us want to hold on to the lie that somehow racism is not an issue, or no longer an issue.

In Canada, remember, that our relationship with the aboriginal communities in our Nation probably align most closely with the staggering facts about the black community in the US.
