The Luxuries of Being White

Luke Visconti’s Ask the White Guy column is a top draw on DiversityInc.com. Visconti, the founder and CEO of DiversityInc, is a nationally recognized leader in diversity management. In his popular column, readers who ask Visconti tough questions about race/culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability and age can expect smart, direct and disarmingly frank answers.

Ask the White Guy Luke ViscontiQuestion:
There is no need for white people to think of other groups because everything is designed to be so easy for them … it is a “luxury” that they don’t even appreciate. Most black folks are forced to think about racial issues quite frequently, whether we want to or not. I imagine that it would be a luxury not to carry that burden.

What do you think?

 

Answer:

I agree. Please understand there are white people who recognize that. You will know them by their deeds.
