    5 the union brothers who died on the job described above) while the Boss profited.

    Yeah, they are were so very privileged. Right.

    What you are describing is institutionalized racism and sexism, not privilege.

    Get out your big hammer, write "privilege" on it and bash working class white men on the head with it several times.

    That should win over to our side right quick!!

      have it better than someone else.  I won't deny that.  But the incontrovertible fact is that white men have it better than a person of color or a woman in the same economic situation.  If you just want to mobilize white men and want to ignore the rest of the country then go right on ahead ignoring that fact.

      There revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

          under the guise of worrying about the working class.  The problems you describe are the problems of the working class, not just working class whites.  And the fact of the matter is that working class whites have it better than working class people of color.

            Stop lieing about what I said:

            .

            But I don't hold my fellow white poor and working class brethren blameless for this sad state affairs. They allow themselves to led around by that racist/sexist ring which the Corporate Powers have implanted in their collective nose

              that erases a huge part of the problem with racism.
