A younger coworker once asked me what was the definition of white privilege. He asked me this question as he had reclined his chair in his cubicle next to mine, and was relaxing, with his feet on his desk. He was reading the paper. He did this every morning for about 30 minutes. every morning. I told him " an example is, what you're doing right now. I could never get away with doing that." It's like a lightbulb went off in his head. He said, "that's right. you couldn't get away with doing this."
