Recently I authored a piece in American Thinker titled “The ‘white experience’ and me.” The response was overwhelming and almost all positive. Two emails spoke about “White Privilege,” which wasn’t discussed in the article. The first email requested that I give the subject some thought before responding and not give a ‘knee jerk’ reaction. Both emails referenced the article “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack” by Peggy McIntosh, published in 1988. I had heard this article was the beginning of the term white privilege but had never read it. Over the next few days I read, reread and reread the article. My opinion and my response?
What a load of horse pucky!
