Could you speak to the different kind of policing being done in primarily minority neighborhoods? For many of us white folks living in the suburbs, we have little concept of how policing is different in other places.

carolyn cagle

holy crap am I priveleged.
Linda Kraemer
01:05:36
Have done before, and yes I am a white person with a score of 10
Kris Schwartz
01:05:37
My extreme privilege
Angie Swenson-Holzinger (she, hers)
01:05:37
I have done this activity before, but it's striking every time how much unearned privilege I have.
Ann Herzog Drewiske
01:05:47
I am privileged
Alisha Cunningham
01:05:47
Having my success being considered a credit to my race - hadn’t thought of that. Wow
Beth Samuelson
01:05:48
I have taken this test before and it makes me very aware of the privelidge
Kathryn Lien
01:05:52
The point is—I’ve never even considered these as something to consider.
Beth Samuelson
01:05:55
It saddens me.
trish sisson
01:06:01
10 out of 10 - ugh
Stephen Delisi, he, him, his
01:06:02
It drove home the full extent of my privilege at a 10
Katrina Larsen
01:06:03
I never think about my race. Very privileged.
Jennifer Herink
01:06:07
A few of these I had not thought of, good to see in writing.
Annie Perkins
01:06:07
A very excellent illustrative exercise!
Kathy Scott
01:06:08
Because I am white and one of my children is black, I have 8 because two questions involved my children instead of me directly.
Sue Gerlach
01:06:15
10--Eye opening and thought provoking
Shelley Calvert - SCVF
01:06:16
Ten - this is humbling.
carolyn cagle
01:06:17
I feel for my friends of color
Ellen Turpin
01:06:17
10 for 10 Yikes! Had not considered so many of these situations.
slee
01:06:19
I had a ten. It is a startling realization.
Nick Lauer
01:06:23
Not surprising, as a white male, have done this and similar results, gender identity is where intersectionality comes into play for me.
Bob Gray
01:06:27
amazing what all we take for granted
Beth Samuelson
01:06:28
Have you heard of an organization named NdCAD.org?
Kathy Graham
01:06:30
How embarrassing to have to admit some of those things apply to me.
Mike Schut
01:06:37
I am curious how you, Jason, or other people of color, tend to score this…
Angela Whitaker
01:06:43
Helped me to see how my own privilege is a tool, and the ability to reflect on how to use it better.
Todd Olson (he/him)
01:06:54
multiracial w/ score of 2
Diane Meyer

Hi Everyone! This is Diane from Prescott WI.
Sara Martin
01:07:26
the one about keeping my kids safe when i'm not around breaks my heart.
Diane Meyer
01:07:49
It confirms my understanding of white priveledge
Jenny Kruckenberg
01:07:49
The American Girls (dolls) I purchased for my grandchildren always looked like them until a couple years ago and I started buying darker skinned dolls.
Vicki Siebold
01:08:06
Scary that I have never thought of it this way. There is white priviledge for you.
Laura Otto
01:08:17
my sister a librarian says it is easier to find books portraying different races
Todd Olson (he/him)
01:08:26
This type of exercise holds an emotional load for everyone, but it can be traumatic for some people of color.
Todd Olson (he/him)
01:09:23
triggers previous lived experiences of inequity for some people
Angie Swenson-Holzinger (she, hers)
01:09:25
Being able to choose not to have that conversation is a form of privilege.
Elayna Waxse she/her
01:09:37
To echo Todd's experience, can these conversations safely be held in groups where people are of varying racial identity?
Jarell Kuney
01:09:45
My daughter who is white thought she had a disadvantaged childhood because she grew up in Hudson and there was no diversity.
carolyn cagle
01:10:16
example: If I speak German or Norwegian in public I get big smiles...Spanish or Portugese...different look.
Todd Olson (he/him)
01:10:40
That's an interesting narrative, Carolyn.
carolyn cagle
01:11:18
demographics?
Scott Herron
01:11:18
Anti-racism means to stop focusing on intent but rather focuses on outcomes.
Michele Hermansen
01:12:37
The slides are no longer clear to me. Is that happening to anyone else?
Linda Kraemer
01:12:55
im good
Michele Hermansen
01:14:17
It’s good in full screen. I corrected it. Thanks.

I teach. And I worry that if I don’t do that ‘perfect job’ in addressing topics around racism that I give white students inaccurate information and further traumatize my students of color…
