  •  "so-called" (0+ / 0-)

    First of all, I was not unaware of racism. I saw it all the freaking time. I have commented in the past about how my dad is a racist.

    I was unaware of white privilege. I was unaware of some of the more institutionalized aspects of racism. There's a difference.

    And I actually grew up poor and mostly lived in communities that were racially mixed. So what? Anyone who can actually put the tag "so-called" in front of white privilege has no right to lecture anyone about being holier than thou.

    Time is of no account with great thoughts, which are as fresh to-day as when they first passed through their authors' minds ages ago. - Samuel Smiles
