    We live with some very well educated, decent people who just happen to be Caucasian. From personal experience (no idea what this Chait guy's problem is, though I suspect it's similar) I believe it's simple intellectual vanity. "I'm a smart man therefore I can understand any issue." Understanding the feeling of racial oppression, subtle or overt, is simply out of the question for my privileged white neighbors. Nothing wrong with that imo. The flailing that ensues when they try can be a valuable, teachable moment for them if they're reasonable. Most aren't unfortunately. I wonder if Mr.Chait will be going forward. He sure wasn't on his recent TV appearance. I've learned to be patient. I'm Native American btw...mostly.
