Tim Wise on White Privilege

Posted in Black Interests, Black Men with tags , on October 2, 2009 by Gary Johnson

Tim Wise has been a friend to Black Men In America.com since we launched the original online magazine in 2001.  Over the years Tim has graciously allowed us to post his work.  In fact, time was probably the first white writer that we posted on the site.  In case you’re not aware of Tim, let me give you the “Reader’s Digest” version of this man.

Tim Wise is among the most prominent anti-racist writers and activists in the U.S., and has been called, “One of the most brilliant, articulate and courageous critics of white privilege in the nation,” by best-selling author and professor Michael Eric Dyson, of Georgetown University.
