One Murder of Many: Subverting White Privilege to Save Black Lives
Whitney Parnell, Founder and CEO of Service Never Sleeps, talks with Rev. Jim Wallis in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd about systemic racism, white privilege, and the hope for our collective future.
Parnell says, "White supremacy is the institutionalization of white dominance and power. And racism is the structural upholding of that ... Being born as a white person, you are born into that system in a position of privilege."
Parnell continues, "Hope is the belief that we can build a better tomorrow than today. And that just helped bring everything home for me ... Every day I can work towards tomorrow being better. And that just helps me feel like this is a manageable way for me to approach this very difficult work each day."
