Resources on White Christian Privilege/Supremacy. Professor Sayers.


White privilege "refers to the unquestioned and unearned set of advantages, entitlements, benefits and choices bestowed on people solely because they are white. Generally white people who experience such privilege do so without being conscious of it." (Racial Equity Tools).

Christian privilege is a social advantage that is bestowed upon Christians in any historically Christian society. This arises out of the presumption that Christian belief is a social norm, that leads to the marginalization of the nonreligious and members of other religions through institutional religious discrimination or religious persecution. Christian privilege can also lead to the neglect of outsiders' cultural heritage and religious practices. (Wikipedia, Christian Privilege).
