Help finding excerpt about diversity and race

Help tracking down a section/chapter/excerpt from a book on diversity, with a title along the lines of "50 things I didn't have to deal with today because I'm white."

I encountered this (very incisive) list during my graduate-level Leadership & Diversity class earlier this year. I remember that it was compiled by an academic, not by any popular press. I can't remember if it was in a textbook or an excerpt provided for us by the professor. It is an excellent conversation starter for people who have no context for "white privilege". We watched the film Crash during the same section, and it evoked similar feelings for much of the class.

Thank you for your help!

There's also the book White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son which explores this theme in detail.
