Scroll down to access links and other resources mentioned in Episode 45- “The Case of White Male Privilege and Identity.”
In this episode, four ESH returns come back to the show to talk about being white, male and privileged: Chris Thinnes from Ep03 (The Case of Allyship in Context); Peter Anderson from Ep09 (The Case of Gradelessness); Dr. Paul Thomas from Ep10 (The Case of Critical Literacy) and Justin Schleider from Ep24 (The Case of Learning and Moving).
These four individuals give us an update on what they have been up to since recording their previously published episodes and they tell us how their thoughts have (have not) changed regarding the standard life, liberty and pursuit of happiness question (Question 2). They also talk about their recognition of power and their struggle to minimize it all while trying to use it for the good of those who have been disenfranchised. Finally, they close out the show giving advice to other white men who are just starting the journey of recognizing their privilege.
