    I'm actually split on this. I can see where Hillary would get a pass where Michelle wouldn't get the same level of pass.

    Does Hillary have White Privilege?

    I don't think it's as much about being white as building a network of corruption and influence. There are black leaders who have done the same. Michelle seems far too genuine and would collapse under the pressure of so many lies.

    So Hillary was given a pass that others wouldn't have had because she was "known for those kinda things".

    I can see that, because she also gets a HUGE pass on all the flip-flops.

    HER supporters don't care about her flip flops, all they care is that "D" she has.

    So is 'Dem Privilege' really any different than 'White Privilege' ?

    Hillary's got black privilege. She can fall back on negro talk and evade getting called out on it.

    With more money, power, influence and criminal experience, Hillary is too busy siphoning off cash for her offshore account, than to think about the concept of privilege.

    Part of this seems to be the star power or controlling access to the "popular one" She can do the negro mocking and it's overlooked because anyone that would have been offended is happy to even be considered a friend of the popular one.
    They kiss the ground she walks on.

    While MSM and authorities keep focusing to define which emails are classified or not in their investigations, isn't the big white elephant in the room is that Hillary decided to delete 30,000 emails of her 60,000 emails after being subpoenaed , then later erased her server after court ordered ? Then no one charges her of obstruction of justice...

    could that be considered *white privilege?*

    Well, that's far past anything that 'white privilege' would provide. That involves brain washing, having the 'goods' on important people, and making promises only you'll be able to keep.

    One hand washes the other. I'm thinking the Clinton machine has the goods on many important people. It's sad that so many people are allowing this to happen. Our entire system is based on having people of character in charge.

    Everything you need to know about the doofus who wrote the piece cited in the OP is right here:

    Ultimate Bernie bro: Meet the Hillary-hating Rand fan who felt ‘the Bern’ and fell in love

    It is quite obvious that H.A. (Goodman) is quite taken with the fetchingly self-described “Democratic Socialist” Sanders, who wants to expand the social safety net, provide free college tuition, allow everyone to enroll in Medicare and who wants to put people before profits.

    And since Goodman describes himself as “liberal Democrat,” it’s not hard to see why. It seems like a match made in BernieSingles.com heaven, where it modestly states: “Meet other people who understand the world.”

    But love can be fickle.

    Prior to Sanders jumping into the ring, H.A. was madly in love with libertarian government-hating, social services-slashing Republican Sen. Rand Paul.

    In fact it was only two weeks before his heart belonged to Bernie that he wrote: “I’m a Liberal Democrat. I’m Voting for Rand Paul in 2016. Here Is Why.”

    Sure Rand thinks giving people food stamps is just like “slavery.” And it may be true that Paul wants to give the Pentagon an extra $76 billion to make ends meet. And there was that time when Rand Paul said he would like to “repeal all of Obamacare.” Oh, remember when he was still running for president and he wanted to replace the 35 percent corporate tax with a 14.5 percent flat tax because cutting taxes on businesses and the rich creates jobs? That was soReaganBerniesque.

    But “Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good,” because only Bernie can “defeat the GOP.” Or Rand Paul.

    Hearts and vows are made to be broken…​

    She's played that gender and victim card so much it should be worn out.

    It's amazing that people will completely overlook policy and ethics just to see the first woman pres.

    Perhaps more so than first woman president is the continuation and acceleration of Obama's inept and dangerous handling of America. First women president is the same mechanism to strong arm the vote as was the first black president. Purely superficial.

    Ah, the old "attack the person who attacked the person" trick. Oldest trick in the book. Keeps the conversation away from the actual substance.

    In a "post-racial society", the only answer is surely "no"?

    But she's a Goldwater Girl. Shouldn't she be "R Privilege"?

    This is getting silly.

    I'm pretty sure it's a pentagram, and what you see as a "V" is just the lowest of its 5 points.

    So what you're saying is that she has a fivegina?

    You want to know what has real white privilege? I'll tell you. Cauliflower. I bet if it weren't white, we wouldn't eat it.

    Perhaps "see" was poor word choice, and "perceive" would be better.

    Think about the geometry of it. A pentagram emblazoned on a female torso, and where is the lowest point? And why haven't we seen Hillary in a bikini?

    OK, maybe don't think about that last one.
