I just finished watching the "A Conversation About Growing Up Black" video and it really got me thinking about my own white privilege. I live in a city - a capitol city - on the "wrong side of the tracks" if you will.
I got pulled over one day because my car has tinted windows, which are not allowed in my state. (the car was purchased out of state and we have never changed it) The cop just told me I should get the tinting removed and that was that.
What if I had been black? The cop didn't know when he pulled me over until I rolled my window down. This could have had a drastically different ending had I not been a white woman.
