Yelp

“White people’s privileges are bestowed prenatally. We can’t not get them and we cannot give them away, no matter how much we do not want them.

“For example, if I walk into any drug store in the country that carries hair products, I can be sure that I will find something that was designed for my hair.

“Black hair products are much harder to find; often African Americans have to drive for miles to buy what they need.

“Further, I know that when a Band-Aid box says “flesh color,” it means my skin color, not those of my Asian or Latina friends.”

– from “Understanding White Privilege” by Francis E. Kendall, Ph.D (c) 2002
