The Skin We’re In: Racism in Canada

In previous posts (e.g., here), I cited remarks that award-winning journalist and activist Desmond Cole has made about the “magical thinking” that enables white people in Canada to convince themselves that racism does not exist in Canada.

Last year, Cole made a documentary entitled “The Skin We’re In: Pulling Back the Curtain On Racism in Canada.” The documentary, which originally aired on CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation), can thus be accessed on CBC Docs by anyone inside Canada.

The Skin We’re In, which is also the title of Cole’s recently-published book, can also be found on YouTube here. The captioning for the video is very good.
