The final video in this module made me think about white fragility. When Dr. Pilgrim is speaking about how they have set up the Jim Crow museum to create discussion among people, I wondered how many folks went through the exhibits and felt that their nostalgia was being attacked. In this way, I see how history can affect affect a person's actions. You want to protect things that are nostalgic for you, no matter how problematic they are, and sometimes this elicits a defensive or dismissive response-- which for some people could be related to white fragility in this context. Before watching this video I had seen racist depictions of President Obama, but had not thought of them as Jim Crow related. I had previously only thought of Jim Crow as segregation legislation, which is basically what I was taught in school.
I have been through bias training in my college job as a resident advisor, and was previously familiar with terms like confirmation bias and stereotyping, but had never thought of them as tools for propaganda. At this point, these types of revelations do not shock me anymore.
