Whiteness, White Privilege, and White Responsiblity

Description

This is a collection of resources on whiteness, white identity, white privilege, and white supremacy.

Whiteness and white identity are NOT the same thing although some anti-racism training conflates the two.

White supremacy is often thought to be connected only to extremist, right-wing hate groups. However, the term white supremacy is also a more specific term for racism and a more accurate descriptor for the reality of the everyday experiences of people of color. It exists in both the overt form of right-wing white power groups, as well as a form of oppression that is reproduced by the everyday practices of a well-intentioned liberal society. Example: Appeals to colorblindness; whiteness as the norm. Research has also found that a lack of ethnic identity among young white skin Americans has contributed to the rise of a white identity that is centered on race.

The white supremacy collections brings together resources to help increase awareness of white supremacy as well as identify the simple and complex ways we can each take to dismantle its system of white privilege, racialization, and oppression.
