Me & White Supremacy

by Layla F. Saad

A book challenging white people to reflect on our personal relationship and benefits from living in a system of white privilege and supremacy.

White exceptionalism is the belief that I am a “good” white person who doesn’t have any racial bias and doesn’t take advantage of white privilege or the benefits of being white in a white supremacist society.

The aim of this work is truth… If you believe you are exceptional, you will not do the work. If you do not do the work, you will continue to do harm, even if that is not your intention. You are not an exceptional white person, meaning you are not exempt from the condition of white supremacy, from the benefits of white privilege, and from the responsibility to keep doing this work for the rest of your life.
