"Not sure if you're aware, but as white people, we aren't allowed to get upset when bad things happen to non-white people. Unless we're racist." by stevesmithis

Well, I’ll agree that some people seem to see things this way.  I’ll continue to post as I see fit, to take criticism when warranted, to give people who criticize me a fair hearing, and to either adjust my behavior or to reject their arguments as unsupported by fact.  I don’t honestly see how I can do it any other way.

  4. artifedex said: This whole “white privilege” thing is BS. :/ We can’t get upset over things happening to non-white people, but if we don’t interject somehow, we get chewed out as well. I don’t get it. So I do what I want!
