Publisher's Summary

A primer on understanding white privilege, with strategies for breaking down race barriers in professional organisations.

All white people understand cultural differences from a platform of relative privilege, affecting their personal and professional interactions. How should they respond when confronted with this knowledge? This introductory book looks at the concept of whiteness and shows how individuals can 'unmask' their own whiteness and take meaningful steps to break down unconscious bias and structural racism.

Exploring how colonial history resulted in white privilege, this book examines how that privilege manifests today in a culturally diverse world, and the links between the rise in far-right politics and anti-immigration rhetoric that led to Brexit and Donald Trump's election. 

It looks at the pressures on privilege and white populations, with candid reflections on how even well-meaning white people may project unconscious bias in their everyday lives. There are also dedicated chapters on training to raise awareness of white privilege in professional organisations.

The attitudes and positions put forward in this piece of garbage are responsible for the decay of liberal values

The idea that only white people and white men in particular should shoulder the responsibility for sins of the past as all other demographics are to one degree or another victims is abhorrent. To make this claim is to adopt a position of white supremacy. It steals the agency from minorities and implies that they are somehow incapable of bearing any responsibility. If you remove their responsibility you rob them of power in their own lives..

This entire deluded diatribe alternates between wallowing in collective guilt and decrying virtue in self flagellation..

An important read for Americans

A few of the chapters are a bit technical and dry, using socialogical terms most will not be familiar with. I believe it should be required reading for all American high schoolers who identify with being white. A valuable lens that needs to be shared.
