32 Pictures That Show What White Privilege Looks Like
Published in Jun 2020 / Updated in Sep 2021
If you’re still wondering what exactly white privilege looks like, these photos paint a stark picture.
For over two weeks now, many cities across the US have seen Black Lives Matter protests.
“I can’t breathe,” they yell, referring to the last words the unarmed black man, George Floyd, spoke before his death.
Floyd died after a former officer knelt on the back of his neck for over eight minutes during an arrest.
And since then, his death has sparked ’emotional protests’ worldwide.
But Before George Floyd’s Tragic Incident, a Different Type of Protest was Taking Place
Many people felt disgruntled by restrictions put in place to flatten the curve of the coronavirus pandemic.
And thousands took to the streets in major cities demanding their freedom and reopening of stores.
They wanted to get haircuts and play golf. And in the most extreme cases, some believed elites enforced pandemic restrictions to control the masses.
A Month on, People Have Been Marching Against Police Brutality and Systemic Racism
While many people are fighting for their basic human rights, some are protesting over their haircuts. That’s the shocking reality.
To see pictures of different protesters side-by-side is to see, well… white privilege is portrayed as the most ‘inconvenient’ thing you can imagine.
These photos are real eye-openers. They’re evidence of the division in society today.
Some of the images also show how ‘destructive’ white privilege can be.
White privilege is a system explicitly to protect white racial privileges, rights, and benefits at the detriment of everyone else. According to Vice, it’s the implicit and systemic advantages white people have relative to those subjected to racism.
