Privilege not only causes white people to miss instances of racism but it causes them to think they get to set the terms or parameters for what constitutes racism as well. For example, situations that can universally be understood as racist like a blatant hate crime, are โ€œin bounds.โ€ But anything thatโ€™s not as obvious is dismissed and those who attempt to shed light on less obvious forms of racism get accused of race baiting or, my personal favorite, playing the race card. This essentially means that if itโ€™s not obviously racist to a white person then itโ€™s not racist.
