    Lol, very true. I have to work around people who think "if you ain't Dutch, you ain't much." And I'm not Dutch. There's nothing to be done about it except go all Hitler on them, and not even that worked on the Jews. Not that I want it to. Favoritism has to be lived with and tolerated, just as they tolerate me for not being Dutch or whatever.

    I found one way to undermine white privilege.

    I'm at a restaurant with about 80% black customers and I've seen two white bartenders, every other server/wait staff is black. I wonder how much white privilege I'm getting.

    black dudes tend to have "I want to fuck a white girl" syndrome because it's seen as taboo/off limits so you might get better tips than you would otherwise
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    In our school system it's actually Italians Catholics that get the benefits. The scottish/German/polish kids (mine) don't.

    And if you were talking to me about getting tips I was eating there.

    The Pearl in the Oyster

    In the rag and bone yard of my heart I would like a bit of this white privilege.

    I wanna be privileged. I want a sense of entitlement. I am sick to death of the egalitarianism of Oz where we are all mates.

    No, I wanna move to a black neighbourhood in the US and be the only honky on the block. I wanna condescend to my neighbours in the street. I want them to look at me as I saunter by. I want them to gossip about me. I want them to make up fantastic stories about me. I want to be the only pearl in the oyster - nonpareil!

    It's so great these white people are helping the coloured folk.

    White people are good people.

    It seems like a thin line between undermining and over-mining. If the white people are making a point of caring for the black people, aren't they in practical fact relying on (or perhaps just believing in) their position as dominant provider of culture and norms and health and safety and good manners and whatever else to do so?

    I just happened yesterday to be reading the part of Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes where a black character says more or less that, AND I THOUGHT I'D POST GODDAMIT!
