white privilege? I’m not sure what that is. My whiteness cost me the change for a cushy government or automaker job in the early 1980’s. They didn’t’t even have to be coy about why they wouldn’t hire me. “You white and male, once we run out of minorities that score under 66% against your perfect score, we’ll hire you.” “Oh, and don’t hold your breath, every one of the 3 million minorities that enter the country each year gets the same preferential treatment”.
My “white privilege” also earns me untold harassment from the “kind diverse” citizens of Detroit, every single time I have to endure working there.
