White privilege 101

Russell Robinson cited in Salon, May 9, 2014

Robinson argues that the very different frameworks in which most blacks and whites are raised and live give rise to very different experiences of the world. … Because their life situations remain highly segregated for a large part of their lives, their resulting perceptions of the world remain segregated as well. … Robinson writes: While many whites expect evidence of discrimination to be explicit, and assume that people are colorblind when such evidence is lacking, many blacks perceive bias to be prevalent and primarily implicit.
