White Privilege and Racism: A Personal Exploration

I’m half White; my father is White, German and Irish descent, I think, and my mother is Filipina. When I’m around my mom, especially when it’s just the two of us, and even more so if I have a bit of a tan, it’s more obvious that I’m her son and that I have Filipino ancestry, but I’m relatively sure that for most of my life I’ve been treated with most of the perks of a White, male American.
