    Sure it does in modern America. Pack the government and make whatever laws you need to get over the past.

    Anyone remember EEO? I started work at the largest corporation on earth at the time, and had the interesting privilege of being interviewed and asked among other things why there were no blacks in our office. Funny as I was a neophyte and really only had the most obvious answer. No time gotta drop.



    Long talk but listen to first few minutes:

    "Racism" almost always conjures up visions of white suppression of non-white peoples. There is a long history of "racism," however, among "white" peoples toward other "whites" and among "non-white" peoples toward other "non-whites." http://www.anitra.net/activism/racism/index.html

    I noticed all of these spokesmen for white privilege are rich whites born into privilege who realize that they didn't need to work or be smart to get ahead in life, feel guilty about it, and want to express that guilt. Which is fine, just don't indict all white people against their will, don't project your own feelings and upbringing onto everyone.

    Well, the main reason a white person would really want to change it would be empathy, I would say. However, there would be plenty of people that would say they want to change it just to make themselves look better.
