White Whine: Reflections on the Brain-Rotting Properties of Privilege

"White Whine: Reflections on the Brain-Rotting Properties of Privilege" is an article written by Tim Wise.
This and other remarkable examples of his anti-racist writings can be found on his website. Just google on his name and it should be the first site you see. I believe he is white - it's extraordinary how clearly he sees the problems faced by African-Americans.

On another note -

To the English Major who likes to criticize folks' writing: We're just pleased as punch to have you on the blog. All of us reading here have undoubtedly been hoping for someone to show us the way, grammatically speaking. And it's so pertinent to the topic of the blog! We all know that the only people who have anything valuable to say are those who win spelling bees.

(PS - Anyone and everyone can post comments here - so far, many of the most interesting comments have not come from the English Majors.)
