The pop-quiz is comprised of questions that help set a context for discussing this thing called White privilege and serves to help people understand what it means to possess it. The quiz is meant to dispel any mystery or skepticism about the existence of privilege for those who have never given it much, if any, thought. After all, the number one privilege of whiteness is to not have to think about it, therein denying its existence.
Each chapter begins with a multiple-choice question meant to reveal, inform and inspire more questions about whiteness and the system invented to promote whiteness than you have ever entertained before. The hope is that perhaps the quiz will point you in a new direction ---to think more deeply and behave more consciously.

Molly can’t recall when the writing started. Only that writing saved her sanity numerous times before age 15. In 1986, after seeing Reds, by Warren Beatty, she wrote her first political letter requesting chemical companies re-evaluate paint ingredients to save the environment. Writing corporate letters led to op-ed pieces about the death penalty, suicide and racism. Op-ed letters led to guest editorials about juvenile justice and public transportation. Essays led to journal contributions about disenfranchised youth in juvenile justice. Journals led to national columns and chapters in books about Reparations for the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade.
For Molly, writing is action.
