I find the statement and the people uttering “white privilege” tiresome. According to the aforementioned, my family and I are to be chastised for our parentage – isn’t that patent racism and/or bigotry?
If white privilege is the following, I am guilty.
• Came from a home with parents who remained married for 60-plus years and raised seven children;
• Parents living on a farm, went through bankruptcy and scrabbled out a living on a 1895 homestead;
• Tilled an acre of vegetables and fruits with a horse, raised beef, dairy, hogs, chickens for food;
• Worked from sunup to sundown tilling, seeding, harvesting, butchering, canning, tending animals;
• A home that cared for less fortunate relatives and neighbors sharing produce, time and energies in times of need;
• Parents who exemplified work ethics and disciplines while demanding as much from their children which led to self-sustaining independence;
• Parents whose home emphasized the importance of prayer and a greater power than any government program.
Try a I might, I cannot see what race has to do with any of the above. The successful journey from cradle to grave has much to do with character not skin color.
