The beauty of White Privilege is you don’t realize you have it

Over the past few days I have listened to the debate regarding white privilege. Some argue it simply does not exist and others argue that it is one of the impediments that stops the economic ascension of minorities, but is it real? Yes it is very real. The privilege is granted at birth when you automatically receive the benefit of the doubt. Share your thoughts.

    I remember sitting in a lecture about race when a white woman began to cry and express how she wanted to be stripped of her privilege. The lecturer, frustrated, pointed out how it was even a privilege to be able to say that and ‘chose’ to do without your privilege…without actually being able to ever do so.

    Definitely real. Everyone is so conditioned to it that most fail to see.
