Occidental Prof: ‘We Are a White Supremacist Society’

Occidental College Politics Professor Caroline Heldman declared “we are a white supremacist society” on Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Ed Show.”

“I think it’s a myth to think that racists are unusual. We are a white supremacist society. We are a society that, on its face, values white people, what they do and their body, their integrity more than people of color, not just African-Americans, but all people of color. We dehumanize people of color in this country. And so once a white person recognizes this, if they’re given the opportunity and privilege of education, then it is a constant struggle throughout the course of your lifetime to overcome it.”
