    that rises above white privilege. As bad as white privilege is this guy manages to throw the whole book of the reality of being African American and poor away. How in the fuck would he know anything other then what it's like to be middle class and white?  Why would he post something like this on ABL's blog other then pure unadulterated bigotry.  

    I grew up, upper middle class white. I had no idea what being black in America was like, to tell you the truth I still don't, never will. I  had parent's who had enough recourses to feed and educate me and allow me to develop on a level above survival. This dude is not only racist but a reflection of what is wrong deeply wrong at the core of our system.
