TJRyan Research Associate Dr Marcus Waters writes in The Conversation (17.11.15):
It doesn’t take long as an Indigenous Australian returning from overseas to be reminded that we are a nation of white privilege. Examples of such privilege include people being able to experience the following:
- assume that most of the people you or your children study in history classes and textbooks will be of the same race, gender or sexual orientation as you are;
- assume that your failures will not be attributed to your race or gender; and
- not have to think about your race, gender, sexual orientation or disabilities on a daily basis.
