Terms like “racism,” “white privilege” and “politically correct” are often used — and interpreted — in very different ways.  The Seattle Times interviewed 18 people from Western Washington about what these and other phrases mean to them, and is featuring their responses in a video project titled “Under Our Skin: What do we mean when we talk about race?” The project includes 12 videos; each focused on a single word or phrase, with interviewees explaining what those terms mean to them.
