Today I had the opportunity to hear Tim Wise at the Partners for a Racism Free Community(See #PRFC on Twitter) Annual Forum in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I enjoyed his speech and interaction with those in attendance during the Q & A time that followed. I also plan on buying his latest book, Dear White America: Letter to a New Minority.
If you are not familiar with Mr. Wise and are interested in hearing what and how he sees and understands racism as a white anti-racist educator/speaker, I highly recommend taking the time to watch the following YouTube video. Even though this speech was given in 2007, the message is still very relevant today . . . especially since we are in another Presidential election year.
