week 12

“Most talk by whites about equal opportunity seems to me now to be about equal opportunity to try to get into a position of dominance while denying that systems of dominance exist. (McIntosh, 1989, pg.5)” #whiteprivelege #blindracism#whitesupremacy #whitepower #Baca

I chose this image because this is something we as a class quite bring back up. The idea that whites are just as equal as everyone else in this nations is quite absurd. It is weird that when media does not specify the race, they automatically mean a “white” person, as if it they are a dominant race. But are they not? They never were saves, faces segregation homes, had been stopped randomly at an airport, nor are accused first. However, it is wrong for a person of color to automatically assume that a white person is racist, they may be, but who is to say they are. I am sure whites do live a better safer life. To claim that everyone else is jealous or trying to be racist against whites for the idea of white priveledges/supremacy,power , is just  as ridiculous as claiming that blind racism is not true. This nation was founded on the idea that white people are better, take it back to week 3, explaining in the D.O.I that “all men are crated equal” but all the authors and creators knew “all” only meant “white.” To see that googling “white supremacy” automatically images of Donald Trump appear, only shows where this nation might be headed.
