The cartoon below pictures pretty well how white privilege works in the United States, according to Bicultural Mom. How would the same cartoon look if we’d draw it for Finland?
Would white Finn be looking at the black person from a much higher height and state: “We are a good country that believes in social equality (tasa-arvo). You have a right to most of our social services but we’ll deny you one very important matter.”
There is a pause of silence and then the white Finns speaks: “I will keep that a secret from you because you are supposed to figure it out.”
The white Finn looks away from the black person and whispers to you: “That secret is equal opportunities.”
Do we know any artists out there who would like to do cartoons for Migrant Tales?
Thank you Glenn Robinson’s Community Village Daily Activist for the heads up!
