White Privilege: Naomi Zack

“It’s not so much that being white confers privilege but that not being white means being without rights in many cases. Not fearing that the police will kill your child for no reason isn’t a privilege,” says Naomi Zack, “It’s a right.” 

Zack, a professor at the University of Oregon, was interviewed by George Yancy of Duquesne University for  “What White Privilege Really Means,” for a New York Times Opinionator blog on November 5.
