CHAPTER 2 The Invisible Whiteness of Being Whiteness, White Supremacy, White Privilege, and Racism DERALD WING SUE IN OUR SOCIETY, Whiteness is a default standard; the background of the figure-ground analogy from which all other groups of color are compared, contrasted, and made visible (D. W. Sue, 2004; Wildman & Davis, 2002). From this color standard, racial/ethnic minorities are evaluated, judged, and often found to be lacking, inferior, deviant, or abnormal. Because Whiteness is considered to be normative and ideal, it automatically confers dominance on fair skinned people in our society ( Jensen, 2002; McIntosh, 2002).

For early White ethnic immigrants, this has proven to be somewhat of a reality. What is unseen, however, is that despite how Western or White a person of color becomes in attitudes and values, many doors in society will continue to be closed to him or her. The melting pot is a myth because it assumes (a) a receptive society for persons of color and ( b) an equal status relationship between all groups. In that respect, it offers a catch-22 for People of Color. They are told that it is desirable to assimilate and acculturate, but, even when they do, they are denied full access to the benefits of society because they are not White.
