    This thread makes me sick to my stomach.

    When I read the diary I thought "surely that can't be what most white Americans are like. I like white people, almost all the people I interact with on a daily basis are white. And I assume that self-identifying, activist-minded liberals, the people this site attracts, are going to be that much better than the average person.

    At this moment, I hope that isn't true. The attitudes I've seen there, the utter blindness to white privilege I've seen in this threat, leave me with a sense of despair, of hopelessness. If well-meaning white liberals can be this bad, what's the rest of the country like?

      I had no idea so many of my fellow progressives here at DK were this clueless about the concept of white privilege (or even privilege in general). A lot of people here--supposedly educated liberals--have a huge blind spot with regard to this fundamental progressive subject.
