White privilege is watching the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony and hearing the British and American commentators poke fun at the names of African and Asian countries and constantly refer to their negative downfalls (poverty, war, crime etc.) while they hold their flags. Meanwhile, European countries and the United States are only referred to in regards to their sports backgrounds.

White privilege is being able to disrespect nations with predominately POC on international television and have people be okay with it.

White privilege is being able to say “I wish England was still an empire” and get away with it. I guarantee if a black or brown person hopped on a national platform and said “I wish —— would violently conquer the known world,” they’d probably be shot before they finished their sentence.
