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.

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

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.

Ahmed Hafnaoui had the swim of his life at just the right time on Sunday. After eeking into the men's 400-meter medal race in last place out of the eight finalists, the 18-year-old swimmer from Tunisia shocked everyone by taking home the gold in the event at the Tokyo Olympics.

Prior to the semi-finals, Hafnaoui wasn't even listed in the DraftKings Sportsbook odds of winning list, so the fact that he overtook the Australian favorites to win was extra impressive. Australia's Jack McLoughlin won the silver and American Kieran Smith took home the bronze, and though the race was close, it wasn't that close by swimming standards. Hafnaoui was the fastest swimmer, hands-down, after being the slowest of the finalists just the day before.

This, as they say, is why they play the games.

And this footage of Hafnaoui's loved ones in Tunisia reacting to his epic win is why everyone loves an underdog.
