I know what you mean, I think. Whiteness (or any privilege) is highly contextual. Being relatively fair-skinned or dark-skinned in an Egyptian context has completely different connotations than in Europe and even more different in America. Or South Africa, for example. Being Turkish in Germany (Muslim immigrant who may or may not be fluent in German) is different than being Turkish in Turkey (norm) or Egypt (privileged ex-colonizer who intermarried a lot). Also, lots of really cool white ppl are less privileged because of socioeconomic class background (and that’s invisible to us if they become academics unless they’re adjunct). Being a woman w kids is a privilege in some contexts and a disadvantage in many others
