The White Privilege of Not Fearing the Police

United Nations Command Military Armistice Commission at the Korean Demilitarized Zone, USO Tour, 2012.

When I wrote about the 7 White Privileges I Didn’t Realize I Was Enjoying I acknowledged that there are probably more than seven that I’m still not aware of. It made me realize that one of the most intrinsic characteristics of privilege is not realizing you’re privileged. That doesn’t automatically mean that you’re racist. But it does mean you could be benefitting from your skin color without realizing it.
