Well, thanks, I now feel like a terrible person just for having read to the end.

You realize you are now letting privilege talk get to you in just the way its supposed to, by getting into such a froth that you (appear to) make common cause with genuine racist creeps like this McInnes. The Ivy league as "Tidy Chinatowns", Hiroshima vs. Detroit... What was the "killed 50 million people" reference even referring to? The stink of it pours through the link like a sewage backflow.

On this subject, I think you've reached the WOPR point: "Strange game. The only winning move is not to play."

Yes, I know it was presented as satire, and that's how I judged it. Just go reread the thing. A series of savage Swiftian parallels? Or stuf like this: "We need to transform society to the point where privilege is not slanted in anyone’s favor." Har-de-har-har.

I guess I would have said that there's no hint of the latter at all... Not, again, that I think that "privilege" is anything like a non-ridiculous way to try to conduct a discussion of the relevant matters...but whatever...
