35. Well done.
Thanks for your words. It's really important for those of us who have some form of privilege to at least acknowledge it.

I've noticed when it comes to issues of racism or sexism lately, there is a quick push back claiming "reverse discrimination". The only thing that does is diminish the validity of the initial claim, cloud the reality of the issues faced by the "oppressed" (for lack of a better word) and ultimately allow the perpetuation of the problem.

Basically, you will never fix a problem if you refuse to admit it's there in the first place.
