Only the weak, the powerless and insecure ask for "understanding....." Privileged, yes. But villainous? Let me be clear from the outset: White males — particularly those who come from affluence and are able to attend college — are at a tremendous advantage over every other demographic group in America. The entire American system is and for a very long time has been biased in favor of white men. White men — as a millions-strong group — have had it easier than every other group in America. That said: A lot of liberals are increasingly using white men as a punching bag these days. And that's not right either. When white men start whining about they're "individuals," you KNOW America is in decline!
