"

We criticize North Korea for its prisons, when the US has more people imprisoned than any other nation in history. We criticize them for their elections, while our elections are widely viewed as corrupt. We put them down for their ethnicity, while engaging in genocide against our native populations. We criticize their lack of free enterprise, when our own system is now cutting off basic water from people in the name of profit.

In other words, even against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the United States of America looks like a clown. The shoe is on the other foot.

The United States prided itself on the idea that we were not like other nations – that the United States was indeed a land of opportunity, where not race or creed mattered, only the strength of character. But this was a comfortable lie we told ourselves, a fairy tale to make ourselves feel better. Now the world is pointing, and North Korea has pointed out that the emperor has no clothes.

White privilege

Forty-six million white adults today can trace the origins of their family wealth to the Homestead Act of 1862. This bill gave away valuable acres of land for free to white families, but expressly precluded participation by Blacks.

"how do I have privilege?"
