One of the key aspects of
white privilege is that, as a white person, I am not required to think about
or consider my racial identity. I could navigate my world without giving my
whiteness a second thought. But while I do not have to think about my
race, it is important that I do.
Reading Waking Up White gave
me a powerful, thought-provoking introduction to how to think about the story
of race. Not every one of Debby Irving's stories or reflections are the same as
my own life experiences, but she asks challenging questions of the reader and
offers a space to explore what it means to be white and the importance of
"waking up." This book was a fantastic starting point to understanding
white privilege and its impact in my own life.
