An insightful look at being white – as opposed to being black or other – in modern America.

An eye-opening discussion of what it means to be white in a white society, run by whites, for whites. Plus how easy it is for whites to be oblivious to all the obvious advantages and more subconscious perks and less well-known benefits that come from being part of this “normal” group.

An interesting inversion of the 60’s book “Black Like Me.”

Release Year: 2013

Running Time: 69 minutes

Director: Scott Morris

      A fascinating opportunity for (a possibly suprising) insight. Yes, knowing and speaking one’s mind are often two very different things! Thnks!
