white privilege as an invisible package of unearned assets

I need to write a high qualitied research essay for Sociology major for undergraduate student.

‘I have come to see white privilege as an invisible package of unearned assets which I can count on cashing in each day, but about which I was ‘meant’ to remain oblivious. White privilege is like an invisible weightless knapsack of special provisions, maps, passports, code books, visas, clothes, tools and blank checks’.
(Peggy McIntosh)
