I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

This is an advertisement running in NYC right now.
And now a quick word:
Dear White Friends,
Whenever you tell me white privilege doesn’t apply to all white people, I usually point you in the direction of statistics like these.  Being white is basically giving you the privilege to live your life everyday and walk down the street without being stopped by the police.  This is just one of the many ways in which being white positively affects your life without you being conscious of it.
White privilege isn’t about actively seeking out ways to benefit from your whiteness, because you don’t have to.  The benefits just come whether you ask for it or not, and our conversations about race will go a lot easier once you accept that fact and move on.
Sincerely,
Black people who have nothing against white people but get tired of explaining the same things over and over.
