What are good basic resources for teaching about privilege and access, particularly in the context of the tech industry?

I'm very familiar with identity and feminist/minority theory, but I need some introductory resources to share with people that cover the basics. You know the usual "I'm blind to color! You're the racist!" kind of tedium that could be well-addressed with a FAQ.
I know (and love/respect!) sites like Geek Feminism, but even there have had some trouble finding a basic set of starter explanations for people, particularly about how privileged white men in the technology industry could get educated about how to be more thoughtful about the exclusion felt by minorities such as African Americans.
