-----------------------
The First Congress of the United States met in 1790-91 to craft the founding laws of the nation including naturalization, the process by which one not born in a nation may become a citizen. The Naturalization Act of 1790 required that a person must be white to become a citizen of the United States of America.



This law shaped lives in radically different ways for more than 150 years dependent upon whether one was seen as white or not. It conferred unearned advantage to white people and unearned disadvantage to nonwhites. These are unearned because what mattered by virtue of the law was one’s status as white or not irrelevant of effort, talent or skill. If white, then the naturalization process was open to you. If not, access to citizenship via naturalization was denied outright even if that person fought a war for this country, even if that person loved the country and espoused its ideals. Newcomers to the nation received privilege conferred by virtue of legal advantages because they were white. Call it white privilege. These people did not ask for the privilege and may not have wanted it. Regardless, it was conferred simply because they were white.
