The saddest part of the elevation of white men (and women, for that matter) despite what is often subpar performance to profound mediocrity is that the world has been deprived of the very real contributions that people of color have made for the last few centuries. Subordinating these contributions to the subpar performance of whites — who dare show rage when success isn’t automatically ceded to them just for being born without pigment — has not just screwed over non-whites (90% human species) worldwide; it has deprived the entire world of true gifts due to white people’s inability to admit that many times, they just aren’t qualifying intrinsically and have garnered (fill in the blank) due to their whiteness. Isn’t it time to cede success to people who are showing intrinsic value?

White people see this backwards due to a flawed moral cognition (see Charles W, not C, Mills.)
