First, the article:
Not too shabby.
Now for my consequent customary rantlet, as posted elsewhere:
“…white-skin privilege – the privilege of not having to pay a racial tax for the criminal behavior of a few who happen to share the same skin color.”
That’s one of the best in-a-nutshell clarifications of white privilege I’ve seen. Excellent article.
I would add that the popular and shallow “PC” form of “tolerance” is really just another form of “othering,” and a treacherously insidious one at that. It takes the crudest possible stereotype of “racists,” and conveniently supplies the user with an opportunity to proclaim their inherent superiority — “I’m not like those people. I’m better than that.”
(did someone say “shadow projection”?)
