For some kids, ways they can help eliminate racial injustice might be hard to see. After all, they are taught that people in society are all equal under the law. So why then does racial conflict still exist? And what can they as individuals do about it right now? One way is for white children to understand the unearned advantages they were born with based solely on the colour of their skin. This concept is called white privilege and this book will help children of all races understand it, see how it affects them and find ways to speak out and take real action against it.

White Privilege: Deal with it in all fairness provides scenarios, quizzes and Q&As that develop readers’ understanding of the subject using situations that are realistic and that easily relate to their everyday lives. The topic is approached from three points of view: those who are “privileged,” those who identify as “racialized” and those who want to be allies.

Have you ever wondered why it seems harder for you to get ahead than your white friends? Or do you wonder what all the fuss is about race? Then this book is for you.

White privilege is the unearned benefit that white people have because of the colour of their skin. It can be hard to see and difficult to talk about, but it is real. This book helps readers identify white privilege and start a conversation about how to deal with it.

  • White Privilege 101 defines the issue and provides examples on how to identify it
  • The roles of the Privileged, the Racialized, and the Witness approach the issue from three different points of view
  • Quizzes and Q&As provide real-life scenarios and responses to white privilege

In White Privilege, educator Catherine Inglis tackles the difficult topic of white privilege in a gripping and easy to understand way.
