Los Angeles Times quoted Jody Armour of the USC Gould School on the recent viral video documenting white privilege in Central Park.

“It reminds me of the Emmett Till case,” said USC law professor Jody David Armour, who studies race and criminal justice. “A white woman who alleged that a 14-year-old black male had insulted her, had treated her in a way that somehow challenged the racial caste system, the racial hierarchy, and that seems like what could be going on here.”
