Meanwhile, of course, conversations about race go on all the time. White people talk among themselves about people of color, predominantly about Black people and Latinos. In parts of the country where there are large numbers of Asians-Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, and Native Americans-white people talk about them, too. What almost never happens is white people talking with other white people about ourselves as white people. We particularly avoid conversations about our having systemically-granted privileges based on our skin color or that, by having and using those privileges, we collude in the maintenance of the systemic supremacy of whiteness.
