When we’re talking about white privilege, we’re not talking about white people getting whatever they want because they’re white. (You still have to contend with other marginalizations, white people. Like social status, education, geography, income, ect.)

We’re talking about white people working from the most advantageous place inside our biased systems. We’re talking about systems simply not actively working against you.

That’s the privilege.
