As Catholics, we affirm our commitment to end racism and white supremacy. First and foremost, all of us must seek the light of God, the light of truth in recognizing oppression. We begin to do so in this session, which focuses on the oppressive behavior that is born out of white privilege. Dr. Robin DiAngelo is therefore transparent about white privilege couched in explicit and implicit biases in the video “Deconstructing White Privilege,” the first in a series of Vital Conversations on Racism.
In this video, Dr. DiAngelo describes the most obvious and explicit aspects of racism and white privilege, while going beyond the surface of racism. Her video also serves as a foundation on understanding racism and white privilege for the remaining six videos in the Vital Conversations series.
