No. I think that the experience of privilege is distorting, literally, to the structure of the human brain. Studies have shown that white people cannot feel the same sympathy for POC"s as they feel for each other, as documented on CAT SCANS.

A lack of ability to feel sympathy for others is a profound warping of actual tissue in the human brain.

If this doesn't provoke a reaction, what will?

I believe that all people on North American soil who are not African American or Natives have one foot on the necks of AA and the other on the necks of NA/Indigenous.

It is unrealistic to send everyone back to the country from which they came. It is realistic to redistribute resources from the collective group who stole them to the groups which have been--and continue to be--deprived.

As a separate note, these studies on the behaviors of white people and their lack of expressed empathy for others continue. At some point we will have to ask, as a society, whether people with a portion of nonfunctioning brain should ever be allowed in positions of power.
