On being normal: Reflections from a white girl after a year of challenges A few
Sundays ago, I sat at my large nondenominational Christian church and listened
to a message. The gist of the message was that it is our responsibility to help
those in need, and those in need, according to this pastor, might include a young
pregnant teen, a man who is out of work or a homeless family. While I understand
that those who are down and out need “our” help a great deal, I think that we

1. Waking. Up. White. and. in. Memphis. Robert Bernasconi University of
Memphis HOW DO I EXPLAIN WHAT WHITENESS HAS come to mean to me?
Particularly because I favor an existential approach to race, there seems little
alternative, if I am to address the questions that George Yancy has put to me and
the other contributors, but to offer some autobiographical observations, albeit it is
a form of address with which I have never felt comfortable. And never less so than
when talking ...

Waking. Up. In. Black. &. White. They said, we were a dying breed Look at us now
, on our own two feet We've leapt from buildings And slept outside Call off the

The underlying factor of this and other examples from this section is the White
supremacist theme of “More Like Us.” In her autobiographical account Waking Up
White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race, Debby Irving (2014) devotes an
entire chapter to this theme. Drawing from an anti-racist White perspective, she
writes: About a year into my waking up White journey, I realized I'd been
unknowingly caught in a similar dynamic in the racial arena. During all the years I
'd tried to help ...

White. Ship. l B Elton, keeper of the North Point light that my father and
grandfather kept before me. Far from the shore stands the gray lighthouse, above
sunken slimy rocks that are seen when the tide is low, but unseen when the tide

father not so many; and now there are so few that I sometimes feel strangely
alone, as though I ...

A skeptic might ask, “How do you know that the rope is real and the snake an
illusion?” This question may seem reasonable, but only to a person who hasn't
had this experience of looking closely at the snake only to have it disappear.
Given that the snake always collapses into being a rope, and not the other way
around, there is simply no empirical basis upon which to form such a doubt.
Perhaps you can see the same effect in the above illusion. It certainly looks like
there is a white ...
