Why a white sheet?

Q: I’m a bit thrown by the image of a white sheet at the top of this website. Can you tell me why you chose that?

A: The white sheet was chosen to show that we often use our whiteness as a cover. We wrap ourselves in the protection of whiteness. We use our whiteness as a blanket. This site’s aim is to break down the system of white supremacy and to remove the comfort of our privilege .
