Great film. With the turnaround in American politics since this was made, it is easy to see that racism is still rife (especially because you voted for Trump) and all the big talk by white journalists and politicians when Obama became President that racism would magically disappear, is ...Read more

Insightful video for those clueless about the color line and the privileges that come with preserving the color line in the twenty first century

I'm multi race and national, where is any honest discussion about the absurd privileges for Jews compared to my American Indian ancestry, still having genocide to this day. But it's all good for Zionist Israel to commit genocide to Palestinian children?

I was hoping there would be something in this documentary that I'd never heard before, but as far as I could tell it was just a quick-and-dirty re-hashing of the various progressive racial-political talking points that most of us with any political literacy have already heard a thousand times ...Read more

Everyone has not had the benefit of hearing this rhetoric till they are tired of it being rehashed. I don't think this film needs to give a platform to opposing views. The opposing viewpoint is a majority white opinion that has been in place for hundreds of years. The film is about ...Read more

This film needs to be shown in every classroom throughout America, possibly the world. We all can change individually and collectively, if we just try. Wonderful documentary ...very wonderful.

As a Caucasian, female foreigner living in the US, this documentary is saying so much of what I see on a daily basis around me. The US is far from a post racist society and the way to head that way is by becoming racially aware of the systematic discrimination of minorities and by truly ...Read more

This truly opened my eyes to new information. I never thought about these hidden forms of racism. I knew racism wasn't dead but some of the information still shocked me. I have a friend of African American dissent that is proud to be turning 21 this year because a black man making it to that ...Read more

Lovely video. I belong to a religious group who do not discriminate against one another. In fact when racial segregation was going on in America both white and black members of my religion met at their places of worship. When there was Apartheid in South Africa only Jehovah's Witness White ...Read more

My hope is that "White Like Me" helps change the national conversation about race and racism, especially among white people. I wanted to show how the best way forward is not to try to transcend race in pursuit of a color-blind society, but to talk openly, honestly, and without defensiveness ...Read more
