Quevaughn joins Dr. Phil on Thursday’s episode
, along with a panel of experts to discuss “white privilege”
and how it is affecting today’s society.
Dr. Peggy McIntosh, senior research scientist for Wellesley Center for Women, shares her thoughts. “A white privilege I have is if my day is going badly, or my week or my whole year is going badly, I don’t have to ask was there a racial angle here? I’m freed of that,” she says. “It makes sense for all of us to wonder what circumstances everybody else came from rather than project what we think onto them. And that brings more empathy and more compassion into our relationships.”
