  •  In the nation of India, traditional people (6+ / 0-)

    are being displaced for a highly destructive mining project that will destroy unique virgin land. This project involves very few people we would traditionally call white. Powerful corporations abuse the land and people of all kinds for profit.

    Of course, there's an element of white privilege that lives on in colonialist corporations like DeBeers, but human and environmental exploitation is a much more encompassing problem than that. It's even bigger than the problems with capitalism.

    Racial divisions are used by the powerful to divide, rule and exploit.

    look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.
