28-What it Means to be a White Person in a Racist Society

Rebecca L. Toporek, Ph.D., Professor and Department Chair in the Department of Counseling at San Francisco State

Dr. Toporek discusses the role of White communities in taking an active role in addressing systemic racism.  We also discuss the importance of White individuals not relying on Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) to do the work for them, or carry the burden of making sure they are okay as they navigate their own journey through understanding what it means to be White in a racist society.  Finally, we discuss her recent co-authored book, “Taking action: Creating social change through strength, solidarity, strategy and sustainability.”
