The Cost Of Privilege: Taking On The System Of White Supremacy and Racism
The Cost of Privilege takes readers from the creation of the white race over three centuries ago to the present-day myth of a colorblind society; from the intersections of class, gender, and race to the concrete benefits and harsh underside of the privileges white people experience every day; from the victories when people allied across the color line to the failures of some of those alliances to hold; from personal transformations to international struggles.
Chip Smith collaborated on this essential work with a number of thinkers and activists including Michelle Foy, Badili Jones, Elly Leary, Joe Navarro and Juliet Ucelli. Artwork and illustrations by Malcolm Goff.
“As a teacher, I see this book as a dream text for a high school or university course on racism; as an activist myself, I see it as an organizing manual. But the general reader can be assured that this is a well-written and reliable book on a subject that everyday is becoming more urgent.” —Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, historian, writer, and activist
