Do you believe racism has been eradicated?

No. Racism will continue to manifest itself in new and ever changing ways, and to this day is still among the most powerful and damaging forms of social oppression in our society.

Do you believe that whiteness plays a role in racism?

Yes. The ideology of Whiteness has been the driving force behind racism in the U.S. ever since its creation.

Do you have a favorite author/blogger/musician/artist/ film/etc. focusing on racism? Why?

Beverly Tatum is my favorite author that writes about racism. She effectively captures the complexities of race and race issues without using an excessive amount of academise.

Introduction

I am a rising junior at Tufts University in Medford, majoring in American Studies with a focus on issues in U.S. education. I am interning at Community Change, Inc. for the summer. I am a White, anti-racist ally in training.
