Wee note about white privilege.

White privilege does not mean that white people are evil, that white people are the cause of all the problems in our society, that you are a bad person for being white.

White privilege does mean that if you are white, you are automatically benefiting from a society that represents, targets, and honors you while marginalizing, victimizing, stereotyping, and criminalizing people of color.

The point of white privilege is to recognize it, not to place blame.  The point of white privilege is to realize there are other voices in our culture that need to be heard and appreciated.
