David R. Patrick SOCI 1101 Dr. Stewart March 28, 2011 White Privilege Shapes the U.S. Professor Jensen makes a very valid point in this essay. After having a discussion with one of his students Jensen starts to think about how the color of his skin has helped him throughout his life. Professor Jensen admits that because of him being a white male, that more than likely he is at a point in his life, not only because of his personal achievements but because of the privilege that being a white male in a white male ran society. Professor Jensen admits that he was born and raised in one of the “whitest” states in the nation. He states that he grew up around racism both institutional and personal, and that the only non-white people in North Dakota were the American Indians and even they were segregated from the white people. Since he is white he doesn’t not seem threatening when he looks for a new job or hunts for a new home, another example of white privilege.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
