The next time a white person tells you that they don't benefit from racism, click on The Field Negro blog and go to this post.
I know it's just a cartoon, but some of you reading this know exactly where it's coming from.
We all love when that one white guy declares that he never benefited from "white privilege" because he has worked hard all of his life and he never received any special treatment in America because he is white.
It's an easy default position, because the typical white person does not want to believe that he or she could be in a position to reap societal benefits because of his or her race.
For this poor soul I recommend a book called The Heart Of Whiteness by Robert Jensen.
It might not cure you, but it will at least help you to understand what your problem is.
