What white people need to know, and do, after Ferguson


Black communities are ultimately protesting systems of injustice and inequality that structurally help white people while systematically harming black people. Just because you’re white and therefore generally benefit from those systems doesn’t mean you inherently support those systems — or need to defend them. Benefiting from white privilege is automatic. Defending white privilege is a choice. ("What white people need to know, and do, after Ferguson", Sally Kohn, 28 Nov 2014)
