Screenshot of white man speaking out about race in Chicago
It’s as gripping as Ralph Ellison’s 1952 fictional book ‘The Invisible Man’ but the only difference is this appears to be real. In the video, a white man talks about Black people’s enslavement throughout history.

But, before you leave, can you tell me what’s wrong in the video below? I was on the red line Tuesday, headed northbound to attend the screening of 40 Blocks – an oral history of East Garfield Park’s residents – at the Chicago Historical Society, which by the way was done well with one exception. The train had just pulled into the station at Roosevelt Road, and it was about 6:10 pm, when all of a sudden, out of nowhere, it hit me like a ton of bricks.
The train was full of mostly young white professional men. That’s odd I thought to myself, so I pulled out my camera and began to record. See for yourself.
