Help me understand the concept of white privilege. I am white…why does that make me privileged? I grew up with modest means, went to college with loans and money I earned working. Same is true with my wife. We together made the decision, and corresponding sacrifices, to raise our family. We have gone through trials such as unemployment and underemployment.
How does this make me privileged? This labeling of me has to stop. I did nothing to cause your pain, nor did my family relations.
As a family man I refuse to allow people to paint me with a broad brush. This cannot go on. This position of white privilege is doing nothing to heal this country. Contrary it is further dividing us.
