White Privilege

White privilege is being confident that if I get shot dead unjustly by an officer of the law, there is at least a chance, however small, that said officer may be held accountable.

White privilege is sitting safe inside, Fox News on the television, condemning people for their reactions to something you will never have to experience yourself.

White privilege is responding to the racial makeup of the Ferguson Police force by remarking, “if more blacks were qualified, I’m sure there would be more of them on the force.”

White privilege turns 150 feet away into 8 to 10 and coming right for ’em.

White privilege is my white ass, sitting safe and warm in front of my PC, urging restraint for the protesters, knowing as well as they do that all the peaceful protests in the world aren’t going to do a damn thing about institutionalized racism.
