Defining Racism and Systemic Racism

What is White Privilege?

White privilege is the societal advantage that is enjoyed by white people to social mobility, entitlement, political access/representation, and economic benefits based on their being white.  A white person benefiting from these privileges is not necessarily racist or prejudice, but rather derives privilege from just being white.  Even if white people are oppressed by class, ethnic or religious bias, gender or orientation, white privilege is still a benefit they share over those of non-white people.

Reverse Racism is a term  used by white people to deny white privilege. It is often used in reference to policies such as affirmative action.
