White Millennials Share Views On Race In Interactive Installation
The Whiteness Project exposes how self-identified white Texans feel about their racial identity
“In America now being a white Christian is the hardest thing” Nathan, a 17 year old Texan from Dallas, proclaims from the screen with conviction. “I don’t hate black people, but just some things about them irritate me as a whole,” he adds, as he looks directly into the camera. Connor, 24, has a strikingly different position on white privilege. “I would be in jail if I wasn’t white,” he admits openly and adds that after being arrested some 20 times, including for drug possession, his record only shows public intoxication charges.
