Subtle slights, insults, and indignities expressed to persons of varied minority statuses, although usually unintentional, occur on a regular basis in education, the workplace, and daily life.

White Privilege: Let's Talk, A Resource for Transformational Dialogue

A curriculum developed as part of an ongoing conversation that is a concerted effort to enable allies to see with new eyes how privilege works. It aims to illuminate how white people in America, at every economic stratum and in a myriad of ways, receive privileged consideration simply because they are white.
