“Why are we still talking about this? I wasn’t there, I didn’t do or say those things”. Before taking this class I have had those thoughts before, we all have. Not really knowing what we were saying while those words came flying out of out of our mouths and the damage it was causing. I never thought of “white privilege” as having such a major impact on my life as I never really understood the definition behind it. Being white I never thought of myself getting different opportunities, making it such an important topic to understand. “If you don’t think white privilege exists, congratulations, you are enjoying the benefits of it”. White privilege is often found in the work place and doesn’t hold back white people as it can hold a person of colour. In Peggy Mcintosh’s article “Unpacking the invisible Knapsack”, she points out white privilege in the workforce by stating that “I can if I wish arrange to be in the company of people of my race most of the time”. The bad apple theory shows the bad side of white people as it shows how we only focus on what negative news that happen to people of colour and never focus on the positive impacts they have made in the world. White people often don’t recognize white privilege. We think that because we also have hard times in our lives, white privilege can’t be affecting us. We don’t accept that others come across challenges in their lives, specifically because of their race.
