The "Myth of White Privilege" Yields the Best Sentence of the Day


Inspired by Virginia Sen. Jim Webb's musings, it was penned by Adam Serwer over at The American Prospect (via LGM):

There are a number of things about SenatorĀ  Jim Webb'sĀ op-ed "The Myth of White Privilege" to dislike, starting with the fact that one of the awesome things about the existence of white privilege is that you can be part of a body like the U.S. Senate, which has a total number of zero elected black members, and write something titled "The Myth of White Privilege" without anyone batting an eyelash.

That's one of those, 'damn, I wish I'd written that' lines.
