Tune in Friday night, May 10 at 9PM EST/6PM PST as Stacey Brewer of H. Blu's Word speaks on the topic: Terrorism: Birmingham to Boston; The Power of Whiteness.
In modern times, we often speak of terrorism coming from those who are not Americans or Christians (9/11 attacks) or from those who are perhaps influenced by foreign extremists who are against the American dream (i.e. Boston Marathon bombing), but Monday we will also remember the domestic terrorism of our past that was often sparked by racism, including the 1963 church bombing in Birmingham, AL, that killed four little girls.
Within our general discussion, we will also speak on anti-racist and educator Tim Wise's published essay that explores white privilege in the context of the bombings that took place at the Boston Marathon. Wise states, "White privilege is knowing that even if the Boston Marathon bomber were white, his or her identity will not result in white folks generally being singled out for suspicion by law enforcement, or the TSA, or the FBI." Is this an accurate statement? Tim Wise is a white man by the way.

Jacqueline Battalora is an attorney and professor who works as an anti-racist writer and educator. At Saint Xavier University in Chicago, she teaches courses in law and society having completed graduate work at Northwestern University where her research was shaped by an interest in the social forces that make deep human connections across “race” lines so difficult to sustain. Her graduate training includes: theology, social ethics, sociology, and law. Battalora’s approach to white awareness training is enhanced by employment experience that includes educator, corporate attorney, and Chicago police officer. Her writings explore the enforcement of divisions between people specifically, the making of human difference in law. She is the author of Birth of a White Nation and numerous articles including: “Whiteness: an American ideology,” “Difference by law: the one man one woman marriage requirement and antimiscegenation law,” among others. Battalora speaks widely on the topic of the invention of white people in law and has been conducting white awareness training sessions since the mid 1990s. She has trained teachers as well as lawyers, judges, activists, corporate and law enforcement officials on the legal historical record of the creation and imposition of “white” people in U.S. history and its implications for work conducted today.
In this episode we take a look at the Boston Marathon bombing.In particular, we discuss the subsequent reactions to the event by the usual suspects: Racist in America who for political expediency use a certain religion to elevate "whiteness".
Terrorism as defined by the Merriam Webster Dictionary : the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion. The use of violent acts to frighten people in an area as a way of trying to achieve a political goal.
