One’s Own White Privilege
Posted by Jack Stephens on February 26, 2007
Eric Stoller writes about his own privilege and how to confront it:
The second we truly realize that we are privileged means that we also realize that our privileges come at the expense of someone else and that these privileges do damage to those who are privileged. Systems of oppression like racism, sexism, and heterosexism could not exist if heterosexual white men gave up their privileges and to do that, they would have to give up their power.
