As a white person, I realized I had been taught about racism as something that puts others at a disadvantage, but had been taught not to see on of its corollary aspects, white privilege, which puts me at an advantage. I think whites are carefully taught not to recognize white privilege, as males are taught not to recognize male privilege. So I have begun in an untutored way to ask what it is like to have white privilege. I have come to see white privilege as an invisible package of unearned assets that I can count on cashing in each day, but about which I was "meant" to remain oblivious. White privilege is like an invisible weightless knapsack of special provisions, maps, passports, codebooks, visas, clothes, tools , and blank checks. “ii.Invisible knapsack listd.Microaggressioni.Everyday verbal snarks and snubs to intentionally or unintentionally communicate a derogatory or discriminatory messageii.Worksheet1.Harvard profs interview black employeesa.“Dear white boss”2.“Dear white counselor”
