WEEK 3 NOTES Male/White Privilege- Peggy McIntosh o White privilege….”invisible package of unearned assets that I can cash is each day, but which I was meant to remain oblivious….” o Way of conceptualizing racial (gender) inequalities that focus as much as the advantages that white people (male) accumulate for society as on the disadvantages that people of color (female) experience o Differs from conditions of overt racism (sexism) or prejudice o White ( male) are taught to view social, cultural and economic experience as the norm that everyone should experience rather than as an advantages position that must be maintain at the expense of others o Confers unsolicited racial (sexual) dominance at birth o Normative assumption: Constrains discussions of racial (gender) inequality with in the dominant discourse Explanations are limited to factors specific to disadvantage racial (gender) groups Disadvantages groups are viewed as having failed to achieve the norm Solutions focus on what can be done to help those groups achieve the “normal” standard experienced by white (males) o Critiques of prior discussion on racial inequality Do not truly discuss differences between white and non-white social status, but only discuss of the failure of the non-white groups to achieve “normal” (white) social status Turning race into an issue that does not involve whites or males with gender Not seeing “whiteness” as a race problem o Racial (Gender) Inequality Can’t be resolved solely by looking at life condition of disadvantage groups Solutions can only be achieved by explicitly discussing the implicit advantages that white (males) as a group hold in society
