Thanks for these responses!
Some of these white guys are simply proving Tim Wise’s point with their defensive investment in extrinsic privileging.
Keep writing…Wise won’t need to do articles like this while these defensive postures continue. We know when we are hearing and reading thinly-veiled attempts at maintaining unearned privilege and decreasing the actual effort required to compete fairly.
But that was the whole point of white supremacy to begin with — decrease the need to work and compete with 90% of the human race by privileging a trait that required no effort. That decreases the competition by a factor of 9x — nearly logarithmic — guaranteeing that subpar to mediocre performance of whites would still allow for domination, regardless of the lack of intrinsic value.
Obviously, the investment in taking a load off continues.
