Full Editorial: HereJEREMIAH GIBBS said:Privilege not only causes white people to miss instances of racism but it causes them to think they get to set the terms or parameters for what constitutes racism as well. For example; situations that can universally be understood as racist like a blatant hate crime, are “in bounds.” But anything that’s not as obvious is dismissed and those who attempt to shed light on less obvious forms of racism get accused of race baiting or, my personal favorite, playing the race card. Which essentially means that if it’s not obviously racist to a white person then it’s not racist.
Please have a read. It's just another post in the ever difficult battle to get Europeans and European Americans to understand the concept of white privilege, and how the recent issues going on with the NBA are major, but will still continue unless our country has serious conversations about race, ethnicity and culture.
This also may help those that use the term "race card" or "reverse racism" understand how it's the most white privileged thing to say.
Thoughts welcomed of course.
