His last name is Fortgang? I wonder when his family punked out and changed it to sound less 'other-y' to fit in to American culture without being treated like...j-a minority group? Bet he won't acknowledge that privilege either.

i really thought this was going to be an essay trying to help other whites understand what white privilege is...from what i did read, he hits every point they want to hear to avoid being educated about it, so well played...well played. Pinch

Comes to mind how after the civil war there were Black congressmen and other political elite in south Carolina, then post reconstruction they passed racist laws to disenfranchise blacks and took away all political power.

I just want to ask if his grandparents could vote when they landed in the land of opportunity. Cause mine couldn't.

On one hand, he says that his ancestors had SUCH a hard time starting in America, but smugly assumes that minorities should have gotten ahead a long time ago since it's so simple for everyone.

Being decades removed from the Civil Rights movement, too many Whites (and Blacks) are leaving out important historical circumstances. While he worked hard in classes, studying like everyone else he is using privilege to ignore the fact that race is not a factor when he goes to applies for jobs, housing, etc. If he started at level '0', those who are discriminated against start at level '-1' That's what white privilege is, and to admit it would be to threaten your very valuable advantage.

break it down for those bastards. Because this concept is so damn difficult for them to grasp SleepyErmm
