White privilege is winning the Miss America pageant, and not being called a “terrorist”, “Arab”, “a slap in the face to the people of 9/11”, “Al-Qaeda” and “Miss 7/11”, despite the fact that you practice Hinduism and are of Indian/South Asian descent. It’s not people condemning you for performing a Bollywood fusion dance as your talent routine. It’s not people claiming that you shouldn’t have won because you’re not a “real American”, despite the fact that you were born and raised in New York.
White privilege is expressing your passion for hunting/shooting/guns without being labelled as violent, displaying your body tattoos as a statement of fearlessness and self-expression without it being looked upon as ghetto trash, and being praised for your ability to speak Chinese instead of being racially mocked for it. It’s people claiming that you are the “real winner” of the Miss America pageant because you, as a blonde/blue-eyed white woman, embody the face of ideal beauty that has been prevalent in our society for years, and thus, you are a palatable representation of a “real American”.
