As far as i’m concerned, “liberal” is the most meaningless word in the dictionary. History has shown me that as long as some white middle-class people can live high on the hog, take vacations to Europe, send their children to private schools, and real the benefits of their white skin privileges, then they are “liberals.” But when times get hard and money gets tight, they pull off that liberal mask and you think you’re talking to Adolf Hitler. They feel sorry for the so-called underprivileged just as long as they can maintain their own privileges.
So this is pretty cool, I was interviewed by Rolling Stone today. No biggie.
an underrated moment
white man: well, if male privilege and white privilege exist, then how come my life isn't perfect? checkmate
