Students Learn a POWERFUL Lesson on White Privilege

By:

In this video students learn through a simple powerful exercise about white privilege and social mobility. Students were handed a blank piece of paper and were told to crumple up the paper and and try to throw it into the waste paper basket at the front of the room. Those who made it in the basket would represent those that are wealthy and thrive in the upper class. Watch as the students in the back of the room realize they are at an extreme disadvantage due to their proximity to the goal. The closer the students were to the the basket their odds of succeeding were immensely better.
