White privilege is not planning the conversation you’ll have to have, YEARS from now, with your children about what someone meant the first time a racial slur is directed towards them.
White privilege is never having to skip over the beauty section of a magazine because they haven’t thought to include your hair texture or skin tone in their “358 Hot Looks for Spring.” submission from http://bayshaj.tumblr.com/
thelittlekneesofbees: i just realized that some vegans know more about the ins and outs of the felines that they house than black people’s comfort levels in conversations. and that scares the shit out of me— that my comfort means less to white people than their cats.
White Privilege is the fact we call it white privilege instead of “The oppression of people of colour”.
White privilege is living with the expectation that those around you should never call you out on your own racist behaviors or remarks, because doing so might upset you, or make you feel uncomfortable. (Privilege doesn’t like to take responsibility for its own actions. Guilt is messy, and makes it squirmy.) “Omg. How dare you call me a racist. You know me.” “It was just a...
thelittlekneesofbees: I remember this one time a white guy(might have been an ex of mine) tried to tell me having “street smarts” is a privilege. Uhm, no, it is a skill set that came out of the need for survival in the state of oppression that is broken communities and violence tension due to poverty. Nigga, these streets ain’t nice! What the fuck. NO. In case your white friends said this...
shavingryansprivates: tbh i was thinking about racial/sexual stereotypes and how they’re deemed “funny” by almost exclusively white men and it’s like take the stereotype that black people like watermelon and fried chicken for example there’s nothing inherently funny about liking watermelon or fried chicken but since the stereotype exists that black people like fried chicken and watermelon,...
White privilege is denying the existence of Mayans and making jokes without care that Mayans have to pay a tax to see this important day to them in their own temples.
Hey asshole "anti SJW" blogger
Why would you even say you agree to one thing if your sole purpose is to disagree with us? Tumblr has actually done something good. It’s called the “IGNORE” button.

White privilege is naming yourself the head of a religion that was pretty much all run by black people. And requiring that in order to be recognized, one must recognize you as the head. White privilege is getting a degree in said black culture, then naming yourself an expert.
White privilege is thinking that arming more civilians with guns will make EVERYONE feel safer. PoC can’t even send their sons to the damn gas station for fear they won’t return because of an armed civilian or cop. Giving MORE guns to folks just means PoC will be on permanent lockdown.
The Terror of Black American Motherhood
karnythia: In case you were wondering why I haven’t said as much about Jordan Davis as I did about Trayvon Martin? I can’t formulate anything that isn’t blubbering. My son is 13, 5 ft 7 & just over 100lbs. It’s all I can do to let him out of my house alone. Being the mother of a young black man in America is hard frightening work in general, much less when you know that they can be killed...
A lot of people seem to assume that calling out white privilege is just us trying to come up with an excuse for why we haven’t found success in life, but Um Who said we haven’t found success in life? I worked hard in high school, got a full academic scholarship to college, got a job, and now I’m not lower class for the first time in my family’s life. I’m not...
