Week 12: Whiteness

Untitled.jpg

“The sense of whites as non-raced is most evident in the absence of reference to whiteness in the habitual speech and writing of white people in the west…we don’t mention the whiteness of the white people we know” (Dyer, 10). #whiteness #invisibility #whiteprivilege #Mack

We often mention how “Black” or “Chinese” someone appears but we do not mention how white someone is, this is a form of racism as well that we don’t even realize. We are accustomed to believing whites are America.
