This comic does NOT perfect explain what white privilege is. The fact that it’s described that way speaks to how much it does NOT explain white privilege. White privilege is NOT the statistics cited in this article. Those statistics are the result of institutionalized racism - NOT white privilege. You can’t draw cartoons to “perfectly explain” what white privilege is, because white privilege is subtleties and tones that are rarely seen by those who possess it. While that’s a weak definition, the fact that it IS a weak definition is really the essence of white privilege. While I believe the author and artist had good intentions, I’m annoyed that anyone would even attempt to explain this issue with a comic strip. The fact is, if you are white and you believe that you can FULLY and PERFECTLY EXPLAIN white privilege, you are probably the furthest from understanding what white privilege is.
