What Privilege?

I have been, regrettably, blind to white privilege. I just don’t see it. I lived through the sixties and saw the dogs set on the blacks, the marches and heard the most vile vitriol from bigots willing to kill to hold on to their prejudice.  Now things are better.  Now I am hearing more about racism than I heard about in the sixties.  I am seeing no evidence of it. But the folks on the left seem to be able to see what I cannot. I hear things about “dog whistles”, and “white privilege” but cannot remember ever having been aware of these arcane methods of oppression. Is there a de-coder ring in this box of Cracker Jacks?

Search for the Privileged Snipe

I place white privilege along with snipe hunts and searching for big foot. I have been hearing about it for the last few years but I have not been able to actually find any white privilege…..or Big Foot for that matter. The subject of the vid is white privilege. The interviewees are black and the talk is intelligent..
