Concepts for discussing whiteness

Week 3 of The Racial State is on Whiteness, White Possession and White Supremacy. The philosopher of race, Helen Ngo has written a very good article discussing the potential problems with the concept of white privilege, ‘On white privilege, white priority and white supremacy’.

I have adapted her essay to create an exercise for students to discuss the pros and cons of the various terminology she introduces in the article.
