  •  From one more white guy to another: (7+ / 0-)

    You can't be serious, man.

    Everyone makes choices, but it is incomprehensible to assert there is just no alternative but to ride the white privilege gravy train and spend a lifetime profiteering on its spoils.

    American history and world history are rife with examples of white people who did more than just banked a shitload of money and occasionally donated to charities.

    Read. Talk. Consider what others have done to better the world and challenge the forces of ignorance, expropriation, oppression and injustice. Ask what you and those around you might do to further those struggles.

    Take risks and consider activist steps more dramatic and committed than throwing a few stray bucks at worthy causes. Good luck.
