White people are treated different in our society. White people are not better, but being white in our society is far easier.
Black people are treated worse in our society. Black people are not worse than white people, but it is far harder to be black in our society.
White people have privileges they can be completely unaware of. “Privilege is when you think something is not a problem because it’s not a problem to you personally.” If you’re oblivious or not looking for the injustice as a white person, you likely won’t find it because it doesn’t directly affect you. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be fighting for justice and equality. In fact, you should be using your white privilege to end your white privilege.
The fact that it’s easier for you to be white means that it’s harder for non-white people. That is unfair. You shouldn’t be able to enjoy the advantages of systemic racism because you should know that means other people are experiences direct disadvantages as a result.
White people are listened to more, they are taken more seriously. Especially old white men. That’s the way it is right now, and although it’s completely wrong we need to use the advantage we currently have to make sure we eventually do not have this advantage. Equality means you don’t have an advantage over another race. We won’t have true equality until we achieve justice. Justice can’t be achieved if white people remain quiet.
