Downloads of White Privilege

A visitor found this space by googling the downside of white privilege.” I suspect they wanted to learn more about how racism harms white privilege, which it does, in insidious ways. Perhaps the most harmful aspect of white privilege for white people is its opacity. We have it but don’t realize we have it. At least that is how I have come to understand how white privilege operates in my life. And even knowing I have white privilege, I still struggle to see myself acting through it, without realizing it.

Of course, this cartoon isn’t so serious. I’ve chosen to create a character who persistently refuses to acknowledge any privileges. Let’s just say this person suffers from a terminal case of persistent denial.

Prospect on!
