White privilege and unintended ironies

Leave a comment

This week’s True Community is a response to the culture that makes an article like Tal Fortgang’s possible. If you haven’t heard, a young Princeton student had an article picked up by Time Magazine. In it, he refuses to apologize for his white privilege, stumbling backwards through unintended and deeply unfortunate ironies. They reveal a lot about how elites perceive themselves.

I take a look at this problem from the perspective of a community college teacher who only teaches the underclasses. And I find many similarities between the Princeton kid and the community college kid.

Hope you’ll check it out. And please do share.
