Week Seven/Eight Journal Prompt: White Privilege

Posted by naomi.namnam39 on November 22, 2020 at 9:30 PM

I have had multiple experiences with White privilege, especially growing up as a mixed girl in an all White, conservative town. If I had to choose specifically, I would comment about school behavior. It would always seem the teachers were out to get me from a young age; while it became less obvious the more I grew up, I could very easily pick out the underlying tones and prejudices the school had against me. I would be either in the top or close to it my whole life, working to make sure I made something of myself, but the teachers nor the principal would cut me any slack. They made sure certain ones would get their praise and awards but even when I had the same grades as them, I wouldn’t get the same treatment. There was one year in which I got the highest grade in my class, and I was sure there was no way anyone else could get it. The teacher ended up giving it to a white boy who “tried his hardest to make up his F to a B” that year; what stung even more so what the fact that I was his tutor that the teacher assigned him. I have dealt with White privilege my whole life, and I am glad that now I can get some equality at Univeristy.
