    I've never said this isn't a racist society.  Ever.  And frankly, I agree with that whole "white privilege" thing.  You know nothing about me, and have no way of judging the veracity - or background - of the statement, but read my comment history if you want.  You'll not find anything saying otherwise, and if you dig deeply enough you'll learn just how much I do get it.  Asked and answered, as they say.

    What you will find, if you dig deeply enough, is my speaking out about this kind of crap in whatever form it takes.  There is a small subset of people on DKos who seem to feel it's perfectly fine to lump all "white people" into one large, amorphous "privileged" category consisting of nothing but racists.  The OP - at least in this thread - seems to be one of those.  That attitude is unacceptable from anybody, for the simple reason that it's utterly and demonstrably false.

    And here you are, defending the use of stereotypes by one group while saying it's wrong for the other.  How is that acceptable?
