Whiteness White Privilege After reading chapter Nine and the McIntosh piece, I completely agree with Peggy McIntosh?s argument especially, when she said whites think of their lives as morally neutral and ideal. White people, especially white men have always seen themselves as ?saviors? bound by a moral intuition that it is there duty to go and save the ?savage? races of the world. It is this kind of thinking that allowed for colonialism, imperialism and all the other ism?s that has made life hell for black and brown people around the world. This is especially evident now with this imposing war in Iraqi were Neo Conservative are advocating for global ?Americanism? which namely reads: Our white way is better than savages of the earth-they the savages need to be more like us and we the white man should teach them to be like us. This kind of thinking as been going for years starting with the Europeans and there damaging imperialism of every corner of the world.
The Europeans felt that it was up to them through the grace of God to ?enlighten the world,? and spread Christianity to all the hedonist of the world.
