The Color of Privilege | Luther Shinew | TEDxBowlingGreen


How can a white man really understand what it’s like to be someone else? He can’t. But that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t try. This talk focuses on the reality that we cannot live the lives of others but that we should still try to see and understand their problems and perspectives.
Luther Frederick Shinew, 19, was born in Idaho, raised in Washington, and has been a resident of Bowling Green since 2013. Luther has spent time living abroad in Germany, Austria and the United Kingdom. He is currently studying business at Bowling Green State University. He aspires to one day be in international business, in hopes of meeting diverse people, appeasing his adventurous spirit, and making the world a better place. In his free time, Luther enjoys playing tennis, reading every article he can find about his greatest fascination, organized crime, and playing with his dog, Stella. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
