I interviewed three people asking them about white privilege. Two of the three interviewees already knew what white privilege was and I had to explain it to the third. All three agreed that white privilege does exist. All three of the people I interviewed happen to be white.
They all had different views on how to stop white privilege from happening. One blatantly said that she has no idea how to go about stopping white privilege and since not subjected to it herself has never put much though into it. Another though agreed that white privilege existed, she also believes that there is black privilege because some laws and policies force hiring of minorities. Finally the last interviewee thinks that people need to be educated on the existence of white privilege and how its presents oppress people. He believes that it continues to go on because many people are ignorant to it and ignorant to their advantages and the things they do that bring others down.
I think white privilege does exist and that is taking place every day and most of the time it’s undetected. I think black privilege is irrelevant because whites are the ones that have the power when it comes to race. I think the laws and policies that force companies to hire minorities are necessary. White privilege puts white at such an advantage we unknowingly, most of the time, take for granted. I also think that people need to be educated about white privilege, especially whites that have it, and just the acknowledgement and understanding of it can help put a stop to it and begin greater equality.
