White privilege

May I recommend this essay by Tim Wise? My friend Fernio Iglesias sent it to me via e-mail and I found it online for you so I could share it. It's really startling and enlightening, and yet also so obvious I can't believe I didn't articulate this myself. Please read it, if you have a moment to get angry.

Talking about white privilege is one of those things that scares the living bejesus out of cracker-ass white people. I admit to being uncomfortable with the subject myself, which isn't really all that cool to admit as a bleeding-heart liberal. Whatever. Facts are facts.

Anyway, it's worth your time, that essay.
