During a recent race seminar, billionaire Oprah Winfrey sparked conversation by saying “Whites have a leg up. You still have your whiteness. That’s what the term ‘white privilege’ is. It means that whiteness still gives you an advantage, no matter.”
Oprah also said “there are white people who are not as powerful as the system of white people, the caste system that’s been put in place, but they still, no matter where they are on the rung, or the ladder of success, they still have their whiteness.”
