Whisper is a social network where men and women can express their deepest feelings anonymously. Below, women share their secret wish to know what it feels like to be white, "so that I can be treated like a human being with rights."

I find it really sad that I have to ask guys I meet if they like black girls. Sometimes I wish I was white, maybe then I wouldn't have to ask.

I wish I was white. So that I could have a regular American name and get blonde hair and different colored eyes. Sometimes they just have it easier.

 I wish I could be white for one day just to feel what it's like not to be judged the moment I walk into a room.

I kinda wish i was white because my bf seems to be more into white girls.

Sometimes I wish I was white so I can be treated like a human being with rights and not be stereotyped, feared and hated.

I wish I was white so that I could travel the country and world without worrying how people who look like me are treated in certain places

Sometimes I wish I was white because I think they are prettier and smarter than black people. I'm in all honors classes and all of the white people are so smart... I feel so stupid in those classes...
