So many of the social constructs and types of racism discussed in the videos are implicit in North American culture. As a white person, I have been complacent and complicit at times even as I work to be anti-racist. Working through homework with my middle schooler it dawned on me the internalization that Americans are white, and all others are Ethnicity-White. Pausing to have this discussion with her, giving her words to consider in how to discuss with her teacher. In a school that is still just over half white, it is a needed topic. These constructs are embedded in our culture, our systems, and perceptions of success. I consider how no one alive built the systems that are inherently racist; however, we benefit from them, and in some cases people are perpetuating them. For example, the Ivy League admission is an example of classism and belief that whites are being disadvantaged.
