Ten starters for white people asking, ‘But what can I do?’

Race with me: A closer look at white privilege

The next in a series of Race videos with the hope of helping us understand concepts and labels that might be confusing. One of the biggest of these is "white privilege" and in this video, using three different story or analogy vibes i try to give a broader understanding as to what white privilege is all about with the bottom line definition being 'Unearned or undeserved privilege gained purely by virtue/accident of being white'.
