Resources for confronting casual racism

The other day I complained that Jay Smooth’s “How To Tell People They Sound Racist” video was the only online resource I knew of to help privileged folks learn to confront other privileged folks about their privilege. Since then, two others have been brought to my attention (thanks, Lizzie and Becky!).

First: An article by Jamie Utt at Everyday Feminism, providing a practical, almost step-by-step approach to making conversations about privilege less scary.

Second: The Derailing For Dummies page–which I’d only seen as a tool to help me learn how not to be an asshole–is useful if you want to learn to spot others’ derailing tendencies and explain why they’re not cool.
