The fact that you might remain more calm under these circumstances is a consequence of your privilege, not increased objectivity on your part. Stay humble.

So You Want to Talk about White Fragility
Defensive Reactions "White privilege is not real...because I grew up poor, so I am not privileged...because I have had to work hard for what I have."
