    Yeh, white male privilege.
    Some anecdotal evidence; a few years ago I was quite involved with a women who had attended some woman's college (sorry I forget the name) equal in stature to Vassar or Smiths program. And also likewise at the time not coed.
    One night probably because something similar and now an all too familiar item was in the news she confided to me that she didn't know even one girl from her alumni that had not been assaulted and or raped.
    Leads one to wonder if white isn't really some yet undiagnosed disease.

    Typically a racist, for sure :facepalm:


    As President Trump boasted of his administration’s accomplishments at a campaign rally Monday in Johnson City, Tenn., he also touted something he hasn’t done: replace Andrew Jackson’s portrait on the $20 bill with a likeness of Tubman, the African-American icon who ran the Underground Railroad that helped Southern slaves escape to freedom in the North.

    Trump notes Andrew Jackson 'continues to be on the $20 bill'

    The president pushes back against the drive to replace Andrew Jackson's portrait on the $20 bill with that of black icon Harriet Tubman.

    What Kavanaugh's Ugly Entitlement Can Teach Other White Men


    https://www.yahoo.com/news/kavanaugh-apos-ugly-entitlement-teach-120013006.html

    What Kavanaugh's Ugly Entitlement Can Teach Other White Men

    "No one is entitled to be on the United States Supreme Court," Democratic Sen.
    yahoo.com

    ...Despite what white men may have been led to think for centuries, they don’t have a birthright to positions of power. Alleged abusers like Kavanaugh may finally be facing a reality that has been far too slow to come: their privilege —their gender, race, class and pristine credentials — never should have, and perhaps someday won’t, entitle them to power they haven’t earned.

    :facepalm:

    Published on the progressive website ThinkProgress, the piece — titled “Brett Kavanaugh said he would kill Roe v. Wade last week and almost no one noticed” — ran afoul of Facebook’s accuracy standards and was demoted by the site’s algorithm so that fewer users would ever see it...

    Columbus Day Is A Monument To White Supremacy

    Columbus Day Is A Monument To White Supremacy

    I come from Laguna Pueblo and the Yuma Nation, and even in my small
    yahoo.com

    ...But one historian who knew Columbus personally, Bartolemé de las Casas, published A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies in 1552. He decried the brutality, describing how Columbus and the conquistadors disfigured Native slaves and fed them alive to dogs.
