When I was first exposed to the idea of white privilege in college, the one thing on Peggy MacIntosh's list that stood out to me was the idea of having a bandaid that more or less matches your skin. While I don't necessarily think that, alone, some of these things are insidious, when they are added up, they create an "othering." For example, when someone notes that a police officer is a "female officer" what they're really saying is that the default police officer is a male. (Interestingly, when we refer to teachers, a predominantly and historically female profession, we don't refer to them as "male teachers", just teachers...) So, all of these concepts of privilege add up and what they create is a white culture that's not a culture at all, because the individual is defined by his or her own interests, passions, traits, etc. However, other groups are defined by their collective identities. I don't think that means that there's a complete absence of white culture, just that what we're calling mainstream middle-class culture really is white culture. Lately, I've seen a move among white people to distance themselves from their white identity by hinging to their country of origin (this was also mentioned in an earlier video) and also to call out their privilege openly, though I think that's been harder for a lot of folks to do because it feels like it's devaluing their own hard-work. I'm currently reading, "So You Want to Talk About Race?" and the author, a black, queer woman, discusses her own privilege having been raised middle class. So, the idea of expanding privilege beyond whiteness is something I've been thinking through, too.
