Tim Wise Interview


I really liked how Tim Wise defined racism in two different ways. He had racism 1.0, which is the bias, "whites are simply better than blacks" kind of racism. And then there's racism 2.0 which is enlightened exceptional-ism which, for example, would be like considering Obama an exception because he thinks, dresses, and acts like a white man. There's no way to say that we are in any sort moving into an anti-racist country or world. Of course, things have changed dramatically. Whites and blacks can live, work, and go to school together. But unfortunately the racism has just continued to grow and change into even more forms as time has gone by.
