There is absolutely a sense of white entitlement and identity within our society. As a white woman, I recognize that I am at least in that majority identity regardless of any other intersectionalities. Because of identifying in other minority categories, I often forget to acknowledge the privilege that is still afforded to on a daily basis. English is my first language, my parents went to college, I went to college, I have health insurance, religious holidays coincide with work/school holidays, heard the history of "my people" in school, family inherited money and property, US citizen, practice religion without fear, find dolls that look like me, see myself represented in movies/books/media, etc. All of these things (and many more) are my privileges as a white, middle class citizen. These are not things I think about on a daily basis but that I should constantly be thankful for.
I work at a small university and heard a story painting the epitome of white privilege recently. A senior, white, male student was in a local park, alone, drunk and shot a gun into the air at midnight about 6 weeks ago. This student claimed suicidal ideation/attempt and mental distress for the cause of his actions. While he luckily did not hurt himself or anyone else, he very easily could have. This student was initially told that he was simply on academic probation, and received no disciplinary action from law enforcement. He has sense been suspended from the school for two years but is still Scott-free from repercussions with law enforcement. Had this been a student of color, this would be a story with a vastly different outcome. By allowing stories like this to continue, we tell white people that they have immunity. To be a better society for people of color, and really everyone, we have to work to break down white privilege and create equal standards.
