Between Barack and a Hard Place
The 10th annual White Privilege Conference (WPC), an annual gathering for critical discussions about diversity, racism, and combating oppression, was held in the Memphis Hilton.
Tim Wise talked about his book Between Barack and a Hard Place: Racism and White Denial in the Age of Obama. He argued that the election of Barack Obama says very little about a reduction of racism in America. He also talked about different types of discrimination, the pervasiveness of racism, and the personal responsibility to combat it. He also responded to questions from the audience.
