Jane Elliott giving a lecture on “Color Blindness”
seeing these white people squirm gave me joy.
Mad respect to her bc she made that vid FREE instead of making ppl pay her to repeat us like Tim wise does
Jane Elliot is the definition of a true anti-racism ally.
Loved this video. I also loved when the white girl started crying and she didn’t go running to make her feel better as she had no reason to be crying any way.
The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family. That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.
The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.
Do you realize how complex this rhyme scheme was? It makes me want to cry.
