I am aware that I have privilege as a white male. I'm not always aware of it in the moment that it serves me. The new thing that I got from this section was this idea that one of the reasons behind discriminatory actions by white people is the lack of a true white identity. That had never occurred to me before, but it makes sense. I do think I have a culture that I identify with, but it's more geographic: I'm from the South. Not the heritage clinging South, but I'm southern, nonetheless. But that's different from the more encompassing identity that people of color have with their counterparts. I don't know that I or anyone has ever consciously missed that, but I don't know that we would know it's to be missed, either. So many conundrums in these issues.
