On “Woke” White People Advertising their Shock that Racism just won a Presidency
Courtney Parker West

A black person expresses shock, okay. A white person doing the same thing? Ignorance. This is the very kind of liberals-shaming-liberals rhetoric and trying to out-PC each other that drive people to vote Trump. Yes white people are privileged, and they realize that, but does that mean they don’t deserve to express their disappointment alongside their minority friends who are equally shocked? It’s true that a white person can never understand what it’s like to be in your shoe, because they can’t even if they desperately want to. Does that mean a white liberal should forever live with the guilt for being born white even though he or she stands and advocates for equality just as much as you do? Or you believe that’s not possible simply because he or she is white?
