”It takes a very brave fish to point out that the water is not what it’s made out to be. Molly Secours is that fish. With the simplicity of a pop quiz, quiet privilege becomes a loud declaration that it’s time for real change – not a slogan, but a complete overhaul of our color-coded world.”
—Peter Buffett,
American musician, composer, author, producer, and second son of investor Warren Buffett.

For over 20 years, Secours has been urging audiences to look in the mirror. White Privilege Pop Quiz consists of questions and revelations that help set a context for discussing the term 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 of the book 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 readers in a new direction —to think more deeply and behave more consciously.If you feel strongly that there is no such thing as White privilege then this book may be especially helpful.

“I don’t care if you voted for Obama in ’08, everyone, especially White people, need to study The White Privilege Pop Quiz. It is virtually impossible to read this book and wrestle with the questions without thinking deeply about how racism—hidden in plain sight—continues to produce inequality, weaken ourdemocracy, and warp our spirit.
“And if you believe the issue of racial privilege is obsolete because we now live in a color-blind society, Molly Secours’s wry and brilliant insights willdemolish all such illusions.”
—Robin D. G. Kelley,
Author Author of Thelonious Monk: The Life and Times of an American Original and Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination
