Zillah Eisenstein, Emerita professor, Department of Politics
Eisenstein appeared on Melissa Harris- Perry’s MSNBC program to discuss the acquittal of George Zimmerman for the killing of Trayvon Martin. “What was so upsetting to me as a white female, and having the jury be mainly white female, was recognizing they did not think of themselves as Trayvon`s mothers,” said Eisenstein…”This is not about them personally. But in a political world that we occupy, as white and female, you have to be really conscious of your whiteness. And the only way to do that is try to imagine what it might like to be not white.”
