Of course there's always people who complain with the wrong point. The prospect of white privilege may hurt some egos and worldviews, but it is nevertheless true. Quite different from the assertion that white men are evil. No, evil isn't limited to any appearance.

The first segment could have been my autobiography. I would classify myself as high functioning. I ended up as the supervisor in most of my jobs although it just ate at me.
