I don’t really understand how that is a question up for discussion on television news. I mean, even putting aside the gajillion ways that white people are privileged by, for instance, being able to think that whiteness is “normal,” studying world history from Eurocentric perspectives, and etc etc:
White privilege is a fact of every facet of American life. I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here, but this is not a political issue or a subject for debate. It is well-documented and irrefutable.
I shot an elopement last summer with 8mm film and just got sent a copy of the video. My mom sold them the video camera on eBay (they’re from CA) and when they came here for an Avett Brothers show and to pick up the camera, they decided to elope at Redrocks during the sunrise on the morning of the show. My mom asked if they wanted a photographer to shoot it and help film, and that’s how I ended up back at Redrocks (drinking champagne at the buttcrack of dawn) 5 hours after having been there for the Blues Traveler show the night before.
I had to crank the camera in order to record and could only do 30 seconds on each roll of film, so it was definitely an interesting experience. I also photographed it, and some of their favorites are at the end of the video. Just a really cool opportunity/experience with some really cool people.
talk to kids like they’re people and take full interest in what they’re saying because they’re forming their personalities and it’s really vital that they know that their opinions are important and what they have to say deserves validation and respect. so when your three year old niece tells you that dragons don’t like cupcakes because the color blue is a spoon you better nod your head and ask her to explain more about that.
