Response to Rosa Luxemburg (Original post)

34. Disclaimer:

I realize that there are many Southern whites who have been heroes and heroines of the first order. Indeed, I gladly defend the South when a bunch of people up North throw rocks at it, pointing out that a place that made Kris Kristofferson, Molly Ivins, Martin Luther King and Jim Hightower has some potential, and that many of the worst bigots are people like Rudy Guiliani and Michelle Bachmann.

However, there a lot of people who think that as long as they are White, they have privilege, even if it is the privilege to starve, which is why it is no accident that Dixie's blue states have a lot of Latino Immigrants. The good news is that, even the almighty Texas will soon be Brown,and once Texas and California are solid blue, the game changes.
