DC:

Admitting that white people are privileged is difficult because they “have an emotional stake in denying white supremacy.” Also, white people “vote in ways that actually are against” their self-interests “in order to enact policies that hurt” black people and members of other minority groups.

Such is an argument in a 2,423-word essay at the website Everyday Feminism entitled “Here Are the Real Reasons Why We White People Struggle to Admit That Racism Still Exists.”

The author behind the argument is Jamie Utt, a self-described “diversity and inclusion” consultant and trainer based in Minneapolis.

“I see my fellow White people so wrapped up in defending the idea that systemic racism doesn’t exist that we are unable to empathize with the real pain caused to people of Color by racism, both interpersonal and systemic,” Utt, who is white, explains in the essay.

And the way for white people to overcome all this is to hire a certain Minneapolis-based diversity consultant, right?

Coming from a man with those things in his ears, how could I not be convinced?

Did you see the story about Kevin Sutherland, the liberal political activist stabbed and stomped to death by one of his pets?

Saw it on OD. I’m not going to say he deserved it, but I’m not exactly shedding a tear either, now that we know what we know.

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
