The rise of the internet and social media has changed the landscape of the 21st century. The ability of anyone to create a website and start writing has given rise to more diverse voices in storytelling in our culture. One of the benefits of hearing from minority viewpoints is that non-Black Americans now have more opportunities to examine how they benefit from racism. It's also a lot more mainstream to know about, and talk about, white privilege, and the inherent advantages possessed based on race. These streaming shows will help you examine white privilege, and question the ingrained assumptions of the racial equality of our society.
The Black Lives Matter movement has made great strides in getting the United States to understand the baseline racial injustices that have been baked into our society. The current protests, sparked by the death of George Floyd and others, have people looking inward to identify the white privilege in their lives.
But just because one hears the phrase "white privilege" does not always mean they understand the concept. That's where storytelling can help. The following TV series can help you explore your own privilege while learning to see the world from a different perspective.
