White Pivelege allowed cool outings like this lunch break. The Cadillac Commies of Salon.com offer a different slant on white privelege. See Below.
Salon writer Joe Heathcott seems to take 'white privilege very seriously - almost as seriously as that third trip to the sneeze bar at Old Country Buffet.
"For those of us born with white skin, white privilege is the air we breathe; we don’t even have to think about it. It is like the fish that never notices the water in which it swims. It is a glorious gift we have given to ourselves through the social order we have constructed, from top to bottom and bottom to top. It is the pillage of continents, the enslavement of people, the hatred of dark-skinned “others,” all somehow magically laundered by our commitments to democracy, self-reliance, individualism and the “post-racial, color-blind society.” It is our abject unwillingness to confront our history, to correct the deficits of our memory, to lean against the amnesia of a white story told. " JOSEPH HEATHCOTT: Salon.comSomething to chew on, Joe? Ferguson didn't seem to put yuou off your feed none.
If it is bone-chillingly stupid, you bet your last shred of decency that you will find it making some Cadillac Commie richer with pay check from Salon.com.
