A reporter walks up and asks her about being white. You've gotta hear her answer.

Now *that* takes some good reporting skill: getting people to open up on a topic so many people don't want to talk about.

There are many misconceptions about what "white privilege" means.

Some people who have white privilege think it's a bad thing — or don't know they have it.

But white privilege isn't a bad thing.

It doesn't mean that your life is *perfect* if you are white. It doesn't mean that you are a bad person if you have it. It just is.

Dena Takruri from AJ+ decided to ask some strangers, "What is white privilege?"

One of the people who responded to her question was a white woman.

That's not all of it. You gotta hear her answer in full.

She also asked a white man.

And several people of color got their chance to weigh in, too.

Takruri asked seven different people and she got seven different answers.

They all add up to one truth, though.
