Here's what they said: 1. Jeff Tiedrich @itsJeffTiedrich pulled over for a burned-out taillight. never once did it occur to me to think about where my hands were, or how fast I went for my wallet. by the end of the encounter, the state trooper and I were both standing by the side of my car, cracking jokes. and that is #MyWhitePrivilege 07:28 PM - 30 Mar 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite 2. Adrienne Carmack @adrienne_the_3 @Freeyourmindkid Called the police in Allston MA when I lost the key to my bike lock. (White) firefighters showed up — didn’t ask for any id, proof that the bike was mine, or proof that I lived at that address — and cut the u-lock off without question. #MyWhitePrivilege 07:22 PM - 30 Mar 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite 3. I'm Suzi Poppins, y'all! @SoozleMcDoozle @Freeyourmindkid #MyWhitePrivilege I gave birth in a hospital twice and everyone believed my pain and offered relief. 04:55 PM - 30 Mar 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite 4. Geraldine @everywhereist @Freeyourmindkid Not really outrageous, but I had chronic headaches (later diagnosed w/ a brain tumor) and not once did a doctor think I was faking it. A friend of mine who is a black man was left screaming in agony with kidney stones because they thought he was seeking drugs. #MyWhitePrivilege 07:21 PM - 30 Mar 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite 5. Charlotte Clymer🏳️🌈 @cmclymer @Freeyourmindkid Always been pretty tame, but here's a shitty anecdote: every six months over the last ten years living here in D.C., I get cop cars that pull up to me while I'm walking at night... to remind me it's an unsafe neighborhood (it's not) + to ask if I need a ride. #MyWhitePrivilege 05:50 PM - 30 Mar 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite 6. Cindy Gross #Words4Justice #BefriendingDragons @CindyGross @Freeyourmindkid As a white woman I can walk into any salon and a stylist of any race will be able to cut, color, and style my hair. Everyone learns to empathize with and cater to white people. #MyWhitePrivilege 06:29 PM - 30 Mar 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite 7. Nick Barrett @partyballoon_ @Freeyourmindkid Got financing to buy a house as a 30 year old pizza cook. I've never been denied a line of credit actually. #MyWhitePrivilege 04:26 PM - 30 Mar 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite 8. Tracy Facey @HeyTracyFacey @Freeyourmindkid Renewing my Greencard I was seriously taken from the back of a hours-long line & put directly in the interviewers office. I thought I was in trouble for something actually, it scared me. In & out in 15 min.

Why Why @S0methingS1lly @Freeyourmindkid A LOT of shoplifting when I was younger: even when I was caught all I got was a slap on the wrist. But nobody was watching the white girl in the polo shirt, they were too busy scrutinizing the Hispanic and Latinx kids. #MyWhitePrivilege 04:36 PM - 30 Mar 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite 10. Rogue Pacer @IAmPacer @Freeyourmindkid Was pulled over for DUI, 85 in a 55, reckless driving. 16 total tickets, refused breathalyzer, weed and a bowl in my pocket. At the station, no cell, no drunk tank. Once the paperwork was done, bonded myself out with $100 bill. #MyWhitePrivilege 05:08 PM - 30 Mar 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite 11. Audrey Shapiro @AudreyRoseMac @Freeyourmindkid Police raided my house looking for my black bf, just found me and my weed, tried to get me to put it on him. I got drug court and no record, he’d still be in prison. #MyWhitePrivilege 04:27 PM - 30 Mar 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite 12.

GRASSI @andGRASSI @Freeyourmindkid My white friend reversed down a hiway off ramp because he took the wrong exit. I was freaking out in the passenger seat. Cop stopped us, reprimanded my friend for his stupidity, and told us to "get a move on". #MyWhitePrivilege 06:49 PM - 30 Mar 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite Do you have a similar anecdote or experience?
