“How I Discovered I am White” by Janelle Hanchett: “I realized the reason I had never thought about race was because I was of the privileged one, because I didn’t have to, NOT BECAUSE RACIAL DISPARITY DIDN’T EXIST.

Also responses from: Chuck Wendig, Kameron Hurley, Natalie Luhrs, and Brenna Clarke Gray.
