I don't see any white privilege, do you?

Now all of a sudden, weíre the bad guys. Ungrateful brown immigrant children demand soap and toothbrushes. Navajos and Cherokees keep bitching about how we stole their land (shouldíve had better guns, Chief!), and black people run around demanding reparations for slavery, like just because you were kidnapped, dragged here, forced to pick cotton for 250 years, then had to sit in the back of the bus, and still canít get a bank loan, well, thatís not my fault.

6. Yes, satire, as the opening line states

"Editorís note: This is satire." Open the link; it's a good read and will only take a few minutes. I didn't write it, but one of Florida's treasured journalists -- one of the really good ones left -- D.K. Roberts
