Hi Linda, I don’t agree that white privilege is embedded in my skin color. I think it’s embedded in society. As I wrote, my intention is to support more white people in perceiving, acknowledging, and releasing white privilege. As I wrote, those in power can have an effect, and that would be primarily through increasing their self-awareness and supporting the increase in awareness of others. I think it is possible to reduce or eliminate most of systemic racism. I absolutely don’t believe that anyone can wave a magic wand to make it go away.
