Gizelle’s daughters, as daughters of two college graduates, will be expected to go to college and have some kind of white color job. It is the reality for them that they will have disadvantages in hiring and advancement in today’s America because they are Black. I have been a white lawyer in NYC and have heard explicit conversations about not hiring people of color because clients wouldn’t “be comfortable” around “them,” and much worse comments that I won’t post. The white lawyers talking to me assumed I would agree with their racism simply because I’m white.
As Legalbeagle421 pointed out above, white privilege simply means that no matter where you are in society, one ”burden” you do not have is how society will treat you if you are that and Black as well. Gizelle leads a relatively privileged life, that does not mean she and her daughters face no discrimination.
