unattainable to those who couldn’t. When connecting these issues brought up in the chapter and with current social issues, it seems as if the same groups still haven’t been able to attain the privilege of this “whiteness”. In current culture, the presence of discrimination of a multitude of racial groups occurs very often. There are families of the non-white race are being pulled apart because of their immigration statuses and many black Americans face the burden of police brutality. White Americans don’t meet these daily challenges and have this interruption in their lives that can drastically affect many aspects of their lives. When people that do have all the backings of whiteness, the consequences of their actions sometimes are diminished. There are plenty of cases where white Americans have committed horrendous crimes, like murder or rape, and have received the same or even less amount of jail time compared to other sentences for less severe crimes. This comes back to this concept of white privilege that catches their fall and essentially saves them.

    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.
