The column “This is Your Nation on White Privilege” by Tim Wise might have made it to your inbox sometime this week (from someone outraged or in absolute support). Tim Wise is one of the nations biggest critics on race and specifically white privilege. This time he focused the concept of white privilege and its role in the 2008 presidential election. Call it what you will, but no doubt this election continues to challenge on a national scale issues that are anything but new to our hoods, our schools or to our families. Wise makes some interesting points in this very lengthy post, read it yourself and give us a shout back. What explains the changing standards in this election?
