But the reality is: that is not what white privilege is about. It’s about not having to worry about the color of your skin when you walk into a store, no one will think that you are trying to steal something. It’s about not having to worry that you won’t get a job because of the color of your skin. It’s about having people that look like you in magazines or in your neighborhood. It’s about not getting hurt or killed when you get stopped by police. It’s about having a lifetime of opportunities that black and brown people don’t have.

So glad you broke this down. So often, people deny white privilege. I am so glad you wrote about this.
It is definitely a symptom of white supremacy. They bask in it even if they are poor. When they encounter the police, they are less likely to die. Every social system from the medical treatment their receive to the way the court treats them, they enjoy privilege.
You are right that it is a superpower. They can choose to use it for good. Thanks so much for sharing your perspective. I loved reading it🌷
