I am a white woman. I am standing beside a black woman. We are facing a group of white people who are seated in front of us. We are in their workplace, and have been hired by their employer to lead them in a dialogue about race. The room is filled with tension and charged with hostility.

White privilege is a set of advantages provided to white Americans simply for being born white. Whites have privilege regardless of whether they see, acknowledge, condone, or agree with it; it’s not a choice.
