The whole concept of our society to be used to be to do your best and people will eventually recognize talent.
It’s one of those things that used to make our country great, now we seem to have so many qualifiers in addition to doing your best it’s enough to drive someone crazy.
The whole concept of privilege based on something other than your ability is absolutely ridiculous because to say that someone needs to recognize the fact that they are white for example really doesn’t have much to do with anything.
Or black or man or woman or anything else. The whole concept of privilege based on a racial or gender characteristic is like someone saying that just because you have this particular quality that you can’t be rich or poor or anything else like that.
There are lots of poor black families the same way there are lots of poor white families. That guy at the gas company with his hand on the shutoff valve doesn’t care one bit what color a person is.
