I have to admit that I grew up privileged.  Safe, suburban home, playdates on weekends, summer camp, piano, private school, the whole spiel.  And despite being non-white (I really hate the term, "person of colo(u)r"), I often don't understand where other non-whites are coming from when they talk about racism.  Much of the time, I see it as a class situation.
