Look Beyond Being White Submitted by Mark Rosenkranz on May 31, 2008 - 3:50pm. News Some people are being slapped in the face and they don't even know it. It is not just about being black or white. It is also about economics and social stratification. Like Tim Wise said, "divide and conquer." "We were taught to be white." The concept of whiteness didn't exist until after America was discovered. In reality, "America" was taken from the Indian people. Take a look at some of the videos Tim Wise can be seen on. Some of these videos have been put on Youtube. Tim, thank you for the insights you continue to provide.
