White privilege

White privilege (or white skin privilege) is the societal privilege that benefits people whom society identifies as white in some countries, beyond what is commonly experienced by non-white people under the same social, political, or economic circumstances. Academic perspectives such as critical race theory and whiteness studies use the concept to analyze how racism and racialized societies affect the lives of white or white-skinned people.

White Privilege

We are taught not to see it.

Contributed by Ellyn Rivers

Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack, addresses white privilege and the unearned benefits that whites receive by virtue of their birth. This is a potentially life-changing article that aims to foster awareness before we can begin to change the unjust systems and personal practices that continue to marginalize the historically oppressed of our society.

White privilege continues to go unrecognized, as people, particularly whites, are unaware that they have this privilege. Many laws are written from their life perspectives and doesn't take into account the effects it has on other races. As a African American i can attest to the thought of feeling inadequate at times because of my race. The white race is willing to admit that we are oppressed and discriminated against, but at times fail to admit that this privilege exists. Things such as bad behaviors being blamed on your race or even finding a bandage in your skin color are just some of the small things that come out of being marginalized against.hopefully we are working towards a society that will make a change.
