White people feel they have "earned" their success, but how do you earn something when everyone isn't starting at the same level? White people are given a head start, and then complain when they are beaten to the finish line by someone who is probably faster, smarter, and better--and blame it on their race. It's just silly.
Pardon my many analogies, but white people need to learn to share, and stop whining about the few URM that get into a school ahead of us--what about all the other white people who got in ahead of you? Whine about them instead.
I am NOT going to get into an AA debate, but give me a break. Live my life and then tell me there is any such thing as "white privilege" for most whites. Economic privilege at best. Way to make a side's good argument look dumb.
