Poetry Examining the Edges
White privilege allows white people to benefit from systems of oppression that work to disadvantage people of colour and Indigenous people. The author has written a selection of nine poems that create a dialogue surrounding the various forms of privileges, ignorance, and impacts that are created as a result of whiteness in Canada. These poems create a dialogue about different aspects of systematic discrimination including how discrimination exists through the law, media, and education systems as well as on an individual level. These poems are a result of personal reflection of the author.
