What is White Privilege?
Over the week I have been looking for an answer to that question. The consensus that I have come to is this:
White privilege is not having to worry about being treated differently due to race.
How do we get rid of white privilege?
Bashing white people isn’t the way to end white privilege. To get rid of white privilege, the world has to stop treating people differently according to their race. It’s not about bringing white people down, but uplifting black people and other marginalized races.

Martin Luther King’s dream has yet to be realized in America. However, with the entire nation protesting in 2020, I feel confident that it soon will.
