Take from whom? Rising up from where? Why is the top your rightful place? Would you accept this statement about “rightful place” as benign if I (atheist feminist social liberal) said it? Or if a young black man said it? Or a Muslim? Would you hear those words from any of us with calm acceptance, without anger or even irritation? Or do you belong to a special group that is privileged to state that their “rightful place” is above all others, and think that statement is not a declaration of the war you deny waging?
