D&I Podcast Ep. 13 - With Great Privilege Comes Great Responsibility
Cassidy Miles (co-host; She/Her) embarks on a topic that is often misunderstood. Dig in and find out why. Podcast guest, Dr. Jason DeBoer (He/Him) of the Illinois Natural History Survey joins in the conversation.
The article we reference in the episode is found here: https://www.learningforjustice.org/magazine/fall-2018/what-is-white-privilege-really
Quote mentioned in the podcast:
“We need to be clear that there is no such thing as giving up one’s privilege to be ‘outside’ the system. One is always in the system. The only question is whether one is part of the system in a way that challenges or strengthens the status quo. Privilege is not something I take and which therefore have the option of not taking. It is something that society gives me, and unless I change the institutions which give it to me, they will continue to give it, and I will continue to have it, however noble and equalitarian my intentions.”
