Almost all of these are on display in the White Privilege post that Pema posted.

I posted it in Pema's post, but I wanted to post it where more people could see it and discuss it, if desired. 

Quoting SuG4: That's true!

Although the overt forms are dangerous and scary, imho, the covert forms are insidious and by their very nature are equally if not more destructive.

There are a couple of things in the covert section I do need to be better about. And some that I had to Google. And some that I still have questions about. But I think if we look at things like this with an open mind and accept that the discomfort it causes white people is part of learning to live together in a more cohesive, empathetic way, progress will come about quicker.

We are all a family of humans...

Thinking we are all one is the opposite of racism.

I generally agree with most of these.

With the one exception being cultural appropriation. I think that occurs everywhere with every culture. It's part of how society moves and joins. Especially with the arts. So that one gets a "possibly" from me. Would love a concrete example there because I know there are probably examples I would agree are racist

I'm not quite sure how paternalism fits in.
