>   Whiteness is a concept that describes the cultural, lingual,
> institutional beliefs, practices and behavior that maintains access to

> tones.
> This colonial system was created for and by Europeans for the benefit of
> Europeans. Everything was in relation to the European--this is a hallmark
> of the concept of Whiteness--that everything is judged in relation to
> Whiteness and not something else.
