You are White and Want to do the Right Thing?

One of the things I have found in my classes over the years is that people generally don't want to be hateful or discriminatory or (!) racist.  Often there seems to be a problem with lack of information.

Another problem is that white people have a really hard time talking about being racist (well, maybe all of us do).  

Here is an interesting essay on being a white person in an imperfect (or excuse me, racist) society.  It focuses on people working as college professors, but we can all learn from it. Click the title for the link.
