Refers to racial inequality and white privilege, particularly in America. It directly relates to small barriers being removed or doors opened simply on the basis of race/culture. An example might be a white person accidentally runs a traffic light, and the officer gives the driver a warning, whereas if a black person accidentally ran that same light that same officer would more likely write a ticket.
