In today’s society, racism is a topic that is frequently discussed. We question what race means and what does it mean to be racist. According to one teacher giving a lecture at a high school in Oklahoma, being white means that you are racist. This teacher was giving a lecture at Norman North High School, a lecture with the goal to heal racial divides. Instead the teacher, who was not named in the article published on The Washington Post website, said that being white makes you racist in an article titled “ ‘To be white is to be racist, period,’ a high school teacher told his class”.
