I am a white woman who has benefitted from my racial identity. I am constantly thinking about my advantage to stop thinking about this whenever I want. I also am thinking a great deal about sharing that privilege with my children so they are aware that not all kids their age have the privilege to walk into a store, for example, without worrying about their behaviors and if someone will judge them. I was most surprised about the Native Americans. It is amazing how much of their story has been kept from the American story.
