    Black Marjory Stoneman Douglas students want the movement to include their voices too

    BY ALEX HARRIS

    Eleven percent of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School’s 3,000 students are black, but you wouldn’t know it from the media coverage of the school’s horrific mass shooting in February or the gun control movement that sprung up in the aftermath. Black students gathered in Parkland Wednesday said they felt overlooked and underrepresented by both the media and their peers leading the charge for more gun control; and some of the solutions meant to keep them safer in the wake of a gunman slaughtering 17 of their classmates leave them feeling more afraid than before.

    At some point. We have to stop being distracted by Racism, and their call for "white privilege"
    Benefits they receive is mostly unearned, but we continue to give them more opportunity to further take us off course and message.
    I obtained a letter from a white guy that was written years ago. He was applying for work.
    The letter didn't talk of qualifications, or experience. It only highlighted that he was a good guy.
    For white america that still exist. Benefit of doubt, and passes on the ordinary things we get hampered by.

    Look at the structure of america, it is how it is set up.
    How to get out from most of it is to plan out some things to accomplish ( job, education etc ) and go after it.

    https://www.newyorker.com/books/page-turner/the-origins-of-privilege

    The idea of “privilege”—that some people benefit from unearned, and largely unacknowledged, advantages, even when those advantages aren’t discriminatory —has a pretty long history. In the nineteen-thirties, W. E. B. Du Bois wrote about the “psychological wage” that enabled poor whites to feel superior to poor blacks; during the civil-rights era, activists talked about “white-skin privilege.”

    But the concept really came into its own in the late eighties, when Peggy McIntosh, a women’s-studies scholar at Wellesley, started writing about it. In 1988, McIntosh wrote a paper called “White Privilege and Male Privilege

    Everybody has __a combination of unearned advantage and unearned disadvantage in life.
    Whiteness is just one of the many variables that one can look at, starting with, for example, one’s place in the birth order, or your body type, or your athletic abilities, or your relationship to written and spoken words, or your parents’ places of origin, or your parents’ relationship to education and to English, or what is projected onto your religious or ethnic background.

    We’re all put ahead and behind by the circumstances of our birth.
    We all have a combination of both.
    And it changes minute by minute, depending on where we are, who we’re seeing, or what we’re required to do.

    In order to understand the way privilege works, you have to be able to see patterns and systems in social life, but you also have to care about individual experiences. I think one’s own individual experience is sacred. Testifying to it is very important—but so is seeing that it is set within a framework outside of one’s personal experience that is much bigger, and has repetitive statistical patterns in it.

    ‘Landmark ruling’: A woman is sent to prison in South Africa for using racial epithet

    By Meagan Flynn

    The officers arrived to assist a South African woman whose car was just burglarized, but she didn’t want their help. Or at least she didn’t want the help of a black officer, whom she repeatedly insulted in a racist rant. In a video that went viral in 2016, she repeatedly called him the k-word, a South African equivalent of the n-word ...

According to the Sun Sentinal, which obtained copies of some of the letters, the 19-year-old is “being showered with attention” while being held at the Broward County jail, Broward County Public Defender Howard Finkelstein estimated that Cruz has received between 100 and 200 pieces in the mail since he arrived in mid-February. “In my 40 years as public defender, I’ve never seen this many letters to a defendant; everyone now and then gets a few, but nothing like this,” he told the paper ...
