This video addresses the way I have learned about the kind of privilege I have as a white woman. Through my story, I discuss how I have come to realize that people are treated differently because of the color of their skin. I reflect on how I saw my close friend Roux, a Black woman, treated differently while we were growing up, and how this helped me understand how I can make a difference.
