Sydney ash incense Buddha unmasked
"Texas State assignment asks future teachers to argue 'whiteness is a construct of privilege'"I am sure someone could construct a connection between whiteness and the video, and evidently Google did because when I went looking for an image for this post, it served up a picture of this Buddha made of ash collected from incense burned in Buddhist temples, which led me to this video, which might be the whitest thing ever. It's kind of nuts, but is it any more nuts than burning incense in the first place?
Surely it goes the other way: privilege is a construct of whiteness. Indeed, some cutting-edge theorists are starting to argue that construction is the whiteness of privilege, at least for those constructed meanings of "is" that don't privilege whiteness.
