And if, for some reason, this upsets you, or offends you … well, close your laptop, take a shower, and go to work, there’s still time for you to have a great day, too. After all, the deck is stacked in your favor: you don’t have to worry about working 30% more to earn the same wage as other white guys, or having the cops called on you just because you happen to be chilling in the wrong place at the wrong time. You’ve got that going for you … it’d be nice if you enjoyed it more.
