“The cost of being uncomfortable (loss of privilege) is more important to them (Whites) than the benefits of doing what is right,” is a quote Samuel Adams includes in his essay.  “When Caucasians take stands against racism, they are rejecting their White privilege. White silence allows Caucasians to keep a seat at the table of White privilege while providing them with the peace of mind/plausible deniability of not being active participants in racial oppression.”
