Stripping the White Walls – Ep 4: What is white privilege? ft Elliott Denton and Esther McNamara


In this episode we discuss how prevalent white privilege is not only in the education system but in the world (with reference to Peggy McIntosh’s bag analogy and discussing the ‘2019 College admissions bribery scandal). Why is it so important for our white counterparts to be aware of such privilege and what it means to be a white ally.
