Description
Being White gathers various white people to discuss issues related to skin colour and the injustice of white privileges, as well as the prejudice towards ethnic minorities, especially black people. Different communities (e.g. English, Irish, Jewish) are represented. The issues related to racism in England are particularly linked to the country's imperialist and cultural history, and to the political climate of the 1980s with Margaret Thatcher in office. In addition, some of the participants denounce the absurd stereotypes that still have an effect on education, as they are presented in children books and child care guides.
