I owe you an apology. I am sorry i called you a racist, and for my tone.
My suffering was according to God's plan. To make me a better person, I think...not a lot better unfortunately, but slightly. Plenty have suffered far more than me.
You are just regurgitating what you have been taught. But it's wrong. White privilege is a term that is as inflammatory and divisive as the N word. Never doubt that or wonder why white people are upset if you make statements about it. There IS no white privilege.
There is a disparity in opportunity, yes. Especially in the colonies, meaning places like Oakland, Richmond, Chicago, and Detroit. These are places where black people are grouped together by external forces as well as internal, and education and other infrastructure resources are particularly lacking in such places. I acknowledge that. But there is a far greater disparity between socioeconomic classes in this country than between people of different colors.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. preached equality between races for a long time without a problem. Then he began speaking about socioeconomic disparity, and he was quickly killed. Quite a coincidence.
I share his dream, Manley. I think he would be as disgusted by the term White Privilege as I am. It's divisive and puts us at each other's throats. It does not help us join in brotherly love.
I acknowledge that some white people have advantages you do not. But every person's advantages are unique and mostly based on socioeconomic opportunities, not skin color. Many white people have less advantage than you do. Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
