        America After Ferguson: Audience Voices

        Town Hall audience members express their thoughts on racism in America in this video from America After Ferguson. One man states that unless you’re black, you won’t see racism in America. Another calls racism “a white problem” that white people have to solve. A woman suggests that even nice and well-intentioned whites share certain “privileges” that come with their race. Lastly, a man uses six words—“I am not black, I’m human”—to emphasize his point that we need to move forward from Ferguson, as a collective body of people regardless of what we look like, rather than just focus on the many kinds of racism that exist.
