The fact that there are so many calls for white people to acknowledge their privilege means it’s not as obvious as one would think. There are a lot of white people in this country that are oblivious to their privilege because they don’t have to think about it, and that can end up being just as dangerous as white people who use their privilege to their advantage. Also, how are white people going to fix a problem that they don’t even acknowledge? It’s not an “obsession” as much as it is a needed first step in turning the tide because no one is going to fix a problem they don’t believe exists in the first place.
