John Uzoma Ekwugha Amaechi On White Privilege

John Uzoma Ekwugha Amaechi (November 26, 1970)

White privilege doesn’t mean you haven’t worked hard or you don’t deserve the success you’ve had. It doesn’t mean that your life isn’t hard or that you’ve never suffered. It simply means that your skin colour has not been the cause of your hardship or suffering… I’m 50 years old. I am going to die with racism rampant. How ridiculous is that?
