Because I'm A White Male
Privileged? You Bet.
Did I know it? Not A Clue.
How Could I Not See That I Was One Of The Oppressors?
For many years It didn't occur to me to reflect upon the rudeness of my entitled behavior.
I am astonished by my ingrained attitudes. I actually consider myself to be a champion of equality in American society!
Most men of all races have yet to realize what unenlightened jerks we really are.
I know that I am still on the long road to awareness. It's a start.
