…it doesn’t affect me because I wouldn’t do it, so it’s like that’s really awful and when the movie is over that’s it … It’s not really an issue for me. And that’s what whiteness has always been, it’s not really been an issue, and I guess it’s because I’m white, so I’m not on the other foot, I’m not being put down all the time (Lily). No. I don’t think we ever really thought about being white . And I suppose it was just the accepted thing. Everyone around you was white, the people across the road, down the street. I guess 99 per cent of the community was white. And I guess in that way not many of us thought about, nor would comment upon, anything else about whiteness (Jim). That was the really interesting thing because really honestly I don’t think I had ever thought about it before. ... I obviously had thought about myself being different to people who were coloured but not different that I had different privileges. And growing up I can never ever remember there being an issue about being white (Elizabeth).

    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.
