Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 The Upper Hand Advantages (for whites) Unequal rights in court During Carl Lee Hailey's trial, in "A Time to Kill," the jury that decided if Carl Lee was innocent or guilty were all white. "We ain't no friends, Jake. We are on different sides of the line, I ain't never seen you in my part of town. I bet you don't even know where I live. Our daughters, Jake; they ain't never gonna play together," Carl Lee said to Jake Brigance. Carl Lee believes that,"No matter how you [Jake] see me, you see me different, you see me like that jury sees me, you are them." Outsiders to white community Socially Disadvantages (for blacks) Any case where it's black vs. white, every citizen of the Clanton, MS knows the white man would most likely win White people always have an upper hand compared to blacks. Carl Lee and his family lived in a community of black people outside of the white townin "A Time to Kill." Socially & Economically Politically "Invisible backpack of advantages" Politically Granted a fair trail In "A Time To Kill," the twowhite men that raped Carl Lees daughter were going to get away with a much less severe sentence than they deserved. During the time period of "A Time To Kill," if a white man and a black man were on trial against each other, the white manwould win almost every time. Peggy McIntosh writes about white privilege like "unpacking the invisible backpack." She states that she has, "come to see white privilege as an invisible package of unearned assets which I can count on cashing in each day." "I can take a job with an affirmative action employer without having co-workers on the job suspect that I got it because of race." As a white person, McIntosh sees that when she is hired for a job, it is only because of her work habits, not because her employer needs to keep their employees diverse in races. People in a white community have the choice of protecting their children from those that might not like them. Freedom of speech applies to everyone, but most of the time, it's only white people who are not, "seen as a cultural outsider, "when they criticize the government and its policies. McIntosh states that in the consumer market, such as music shops, suermarkets, and hair salons,her cultural traditions are always represented. Being a white person, ensures that her skin color will not, "work against the appearance of financial reliability." "I can choose blemish cover or bandages in 'flesh' color and have them more or less match my skin." "Flesh" colored bandages do not match the typical black person's skin.
