The first time I heard the term, "white privilege" was with a black co-worker who came from a better economic background than me. We were discussing the mascot, Redskins. I was raised a Redskin fan and never thought of how offensive it was as a five year old. I continued to argue that I thought the world and country have bigger issues than a football mascot. That's when my co-worker accused me of being white privileged. At first, I was so offended, my initial reaction to him was, "Well, I didn't have my education paid for me, and I never had anything given to me." When I heard privilege, I associated it with just scoio-economic status. Now I have a greater understanding of what privilege can mean, and that social injustices do not have to be prioritized.
