I can if I wish arrange to be in the company of people of my race most of the time.
I can be pretty sure that my neighbors in such a location will be neutral or pleasant to me.
I can go shopping alone most of the time, pretty well assured that I will not be followed or harassed.
I can be sure that if I need legal or medical help, my race will not work against me.
I can turn on the television or open to the front page of the paper and see people of my race widely represented.
I can speak in public to a powerful male group without putting my race on trial.
I am never asked to speak for all the people of my racial group.
I can criticize our government and talk about how much I fear its policies and behavior without being seen as a cultural outsider.

Exactly what is White Privilege?
"White privilege is the unearned benefits that
people enjoy in society as a result of being White."

“Privilege exists when one group has something of value that is denied to others simply because of the groups they belong to, rather than because of anything they’ve done or failed to do."
"An exemption in many particular cases from certain burdens or liabilities for White people."

How do we become advocates for change?
1. Start by appealing to the ways in which others don't have privilege
2. Stress that privilege is relative
3. A system of privilege & oppression hurts us ALL
4. Privilege does not have to mean GUILT!
5. Offer concrete ways that others can undermine the system of privilege and oppression in their own lives
6. Make it a conversation of ACTIONS, not CHARACTER
