The Wrong Way to Address White Privilege
Cohen’s piece, “Douchebag: The White Racial Slur We’ve All Been Waiting For” is a shoot-em-up piece that intends to leave no prisoners. Cohen flings “douchebag” indiscriminately at a range of personas, real and fictional. The only theme present in his name-calling spree is to appeal to the prevailing attitude of “if you’re rich, straight, and white, then fuck you”.
If it were only condemning denouncers of white privilege, he might have had something, but Cohen goes much further.
Name calling is for kids.
