The Black and White of Racism

BACK

7.

The book notes that rather than being appreciated for all they have accomplished and contributed in making America the land of individual freedom and opportunity for all, "white people" are, at times, the victims of the worse type of racism.

 

By some, they are grouped and racially stereotyped based on skin tone alone. The extremely diverse nature of all the people with light skin is ignored. They are criticized for their success and achievements with accusations of exploitation and abuse of other groups without any consideration of their individual backgrounds.

 

The book explains why "White Privilege" is being confused by many people and education institutions for what is actually "White Achievement".
