Healing Whites’ Blind spots #WhitePrivilege

“White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack” is published in 1989 in Peace and Freedom Magazine (a publication of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom). The text is written by American feminist and anti-racism activist Peggy McIntosh. She wanted to identify the daily effects of the white privilege in her life. She states: “ I have come to see white privilege as an invisible package of unearned assets that I can count on cashing in each day, but about which I was “meant” to remain oblivious. White privilege is like an invisible weightless knapsack of special provisions, maps, passports, codebooks, visas, clothes, tools and blank checks.”

Even though 1989 seems a long time ago, the “Invisible Knapsack” is still very much present and alive in Western Society. Anno 2017 there is still a lot of healing needed of white people’s blindspots for this deep rooted inequality.
The discussion about #WhitePrivilege seems to have more attention again for the general public. Putting an end to white privilege is part of the radical change that mankind needs to make. It’s an important change in the many other changes mankind needs to make. Everything seems to be deteriorating – from ecology to economy. The ruling elites are dysfunctional, and getting more dysfunctional day by day. We need to make an end of these live degrading systems and we have to start with ourselves. We have to wake up. It’s time to speak hard truths with love.

Here you can read more background information about the publication and Peggy McIntosh’s thoughts behind it.
