Being Whiteis a must-read for instructors and researchers striving to better understand the attitudes whites have about racial identity, and for all people with an interest in encouraging white students to recognize privilege and existent racism. Karyn McKinney uses written autobiographies solicited from young white people to empirically analyze the contours of the white experience in U.S. society. This text offers a unique view of whiteness based on the rich data provided by whites themselves, writing about what it means to be white.
