    I enjoy your program very much. As a white male Southeasterner, I find your frank discussions on whiteness quite informative.

    This program put into focus feelings that I’ve had in the back of my mind for a long time and made them clear at last! This was definitely one of my favorite all-time broadcasts! Thank you so much!

    Had fun with this talk, being that I am of a mixed race. My Dad is a Mohawk native whose great grandfather was a black slave and my Mom English descent. I grew up in a white Italian neighborhood. I was bullied and they attempted to drown me twice. But I am still very empathetic and learned to enjoy all races. A family from India hired me at 14 part-time to work twice a week in their store and they all treated me like family.

    This was awesome!

    I’ve been openly admitting I’m racist for quite some time — much as a pig farmer does not think they smell because of the environment they are constantly in, an American can not detect their own racism as a product of a racist society.

    Thank you for explaining this even better!

    My very limited consciousness was given an injection yesterday by Robin DiAngelo on AR. May you thrive!

    Very disappointing in it’s limited scope: ONE. There was no indication (or awareness?) of the pervasiveness of this (non- biological) socio-political Ideology throughout this ENTIRE culture, in both the privileged AND the unprivileged — that is, the “carefully TAUGHT” racism internalized in both “White” people and in “non- White” peoples (consider eye- straightening /skin-bleaching/hairs straightening). TWO….Nor was there a mention (or awareness?) of it’s origin and history : Europeans didn’t call themselves “White People” before the 1600’s, and the word “race” was not even coined before a century earlier….. The Age of Exploration /Exploitation….(Mercantilism/Capitalism). THREE…. Besides “how did we get here”, I did not hear a mention of even the question of “where do we go from here”. To change a habit, or one’s consciousness, or a paradigm ” Mea Culpa” can only go so far.
