This means gaining advantage over others by having things done according to how one wishes; he/she does not require permission to act on the presumption of superiority. However, it is not the individual who is privileged rather privilege relates to a certain group or social privilege. In his book, McIntosh (1988) uses the phenomenon of the male privilege to compare it with white privilege, a social problem which is experienced in the United States. He describes how male privilege has become so rooted in the society even though it is not the individual ‘man’ to blame. In other words, she explains that white privilege is denied and subconsciously protected just like the male privilege (p.1) according to her, whites are taught not to recognize white privilege just as males are not taught to recognize their privileges in society. The whites are disciplined to such an extent they are unable to recognize that racism puts them at an advantage over others. They, therefore, cannot stop racism since they are unable to realize the existence of this unearned skin privilege. To her, she alludes this kind of oppressiveness happens unconsciously and therefore individuals should not shoulder the blame: since no one is taught in a school to oppress others. For instance, race privilege is more about being white than being black. Taking the U.S. society for instance, Jensen (2005) explains whiteness is privileged and has become a norm. There are a lot of assumptions which have been made about whiteness and the society has taken them up as a culture (p.103). It is perceived that being white means getting the best of jobs, house, schools etcetera.
