    "Mine is living with white privilege in a downtown Chicago highrise with a doorman and a BMW in the garage. "

    must be stressful!

      "I just lost this fight that I picked in a very humiliating way so I'm going to rub your face in my privilege."

      Holy crap. Just... wow.

        You can refer to me as one of The Jones'.  LOL.  
        Does the fact that I have worked to achieve a comfortable lifestyle make you uncomfortable?  That's your problem.  My problem is engaging in discourse with people who would dismiss my point of view, and even attack it, because they're unable to articulate and resort to attacks.  And yeah, I'm quite aware of the smack-down my comment represents.

          You have not expressed yourself clearly. You have engaged in appeal to emotion. You have not presented facts. The folks you were responding to expressed themselves clearly and without undue emotional language.

          Your point of view is simply your opinion, not inherently worthy of respect. As you do not present facts, but rely on emotion and attack, your opinions are not worthy of respect, period.

          I have a comfortable lifestyle. I am not uncomfortable with your success, I am disgusted by how you represent your success and use it as a weapon to attack others. Your comment does not represent a smack down, but a disgusting stream of emotion laden, fact free verbal diarrhea.
