If a large segment of the population is offended by a racial label that is being used on them. Then stop using it. Just don’t. Respect their wishes.
Now for me.
I am not privileged. Not one bit. I was never given ANY advantage that had anything to do with my race. Not one time.
I was in my mid thirties before I ever made over 25k. I know what poor is. I know what it’s like to eat a ham and cheese sandwich without the ham. I know what it’s like to drive a rusty Pinto or a Pacer as a " family car." I know what it’s like to take family “vacations” for years in a hot tent. I know what it’s like to see a river of water flow through the basement of my 1200 square foot house every time it rains. I know what it’s like to hang clothes in the same damp basement in winter because the dryer broke. I know what it’s like to breakdown in the middle of nowhere and have no idea how I would get home. My wife’s friends would sometimes follow her home because they thought her car would not make it. I know what it’s like to go to night school for four years to get a two year degree while working for peanuts. I have surely not been privileged in ANY imaginable way. I got less than I earned. My race gave me NOTHING .
How you dare call me “white privileged!” You have no right. You have no idea. Call yourself that decisive term if you must. Don’t use it on me.
That Obama allowed to stand in eight years as President? There is no institutionalized racism. There is the occasional government employee who gets away with because they aren’t caught but it isn’t sanctioned under our laws.
And cheese sandwiches? Spoiled, it was spaghetti with my famous ketchup sauce in my salad days. Bologna was cheaper than cheese too. But mostly I lived on the leftovers on people’s plates in my dishwashing job.
