It’s hard to be Humble

My partner in crime passed this bit along to me with a quizzical look. 

are we to see the personal characteristics listed by the Smithsonian institute as positive or negative in defining whiteness in our culture.With a glance one sees that all of the aspects listed on their {whiteness manifesto) are desirable perasonal chacteristics. yet both Deb and I had a “how dare they” response, and then the follow-up ” Hey! those are positive qualities.”

I am still a little concerned that someone is pulling a joke and I just missed the point. You just don’t hear that much positive about being white anymore

HMMMMMMMMMMM??? The "Aspects and Assumptions of Whiteness" chart was shared on the National Museum of American American History & Culture's website
