Reflect on your own racial identity. Are there any experiences that you related to in the videos above? Think about some of the discussion in the videos centered around colorism and privilege. In the racial group that you identify with, has the societal favoring of light colored skin ever impacted you? Were there any experiences from racial groups you don't belong to that surprised you, or that you had never considered before?
I strongly related to the idea that white people do not think that they have a culture. Whiteness is considered the norm in our country, and other racial groups are considered to have culture and race. I have never really thought about my own culture, the culture of whiteness. The societal favoring of light colored skin has definitely impacted me--I know that I have benefited from my white privilege based on the schools that I have attended, the neighborhood that I grew up in, and the opportunities that have been given to me.
