White people arenít told that the color of their skin is a problem very often. We sail through police check points, donít garner sideways glances in affluent neighborhoods, and are generally understood to be predispositioned for success based on a physical characteristic (the color of our skin) we have little control over beyond sunscreen and tanning oil.

After six years of working in and traveling through a number of different countries where white people are in the numerical minority, Iíve come to realize that there is one place being white is not only a hindrance, but negative ó most of the developing world.
