  •  I don't think it's "white" so much as "privileged" (3+ / 0-)

    In the instance it's obviously white, but generally speaking, I think this is about a privileged group believing itself to be more morally and not just practically privileged than a non-privileged group, of whatever ethnicities or other groupings. I don't think there's anything inherently immoral or evil in "whiteness" itself, though, but rather in what certain privileged whites have done, historically, and believe themselves to have had the moral right to do.
