NeVC: An unusual diversity conversation to think and work differently

An unusual diversity conversation to think and work differently-- This seminar suggests discrimination stems from one having a position of privilege over another. Regarding racial discrimination, privilege typically resides on the side of whites, or those accepted as white. This is known as whiteness or white privilege. This is not passing blame, shame or promoting guilt--while we are not responsible for what happened in the past, we are responsible for today and the future. The goal is not to eliminate white people or white culture, but to empower whites to struggle against whiteness, thus improving extension efforts and ultimately society.
