As a white woman, I'm well aware of the white privilege I grew up with and continue to have. It's certainly not fair and it breaks my heart that people of color have, not only, not had the same benefits of the doubt I've gotten, but also have so many people question their worthiness or cast suspicion on them for no reason at all. It's difficult and infuriating when I talk to other white folks who deny white privilege. They're usually the same one's who feel entitled to get what they want because this is "the land of the free" and anything that gets in their way is a threat. I want to learn how to better educate them because every time I try and they argue with me, I get overwhelmed and upset because I don't understand how they can be so blind. But I have a responsibility to basically get a grip and push through to find more effective communication tactics because people of color don't have the option to opt out of that kind of discussion if they get upset, like I do. It's their reality, so I want to continue to learn how to be uncomfortable but bold in correcting people's ignorance.
