If you like my podcast become a supporter at: www.patreon.com/wbtpodFrom the time I was born and until today, I have never experienced white privilege. From the day I was adopted and until today, I have worked so hard to build something. I never got any help to get through school. I worked hard in a furniture factory, working as a janitor, sanding desks and chairs for the dean of men. My parents were poor, they could give nothing to help me. People of color were able to get grants and loans that paid for their whole schooling, I got pennies to the dollar so I had to work to pay fro school. So I am not going to apologize for something that I have never experienced. I have never received a privilege, except to be alive and to try every single day. So when I see people kneeling down and apologizing for their white privilege, the "F" word comes in my head. Every single one of us that live in this nation are Americans. And there are some people that are stupid. Stupid people to me are the ones that take a word - race - and try and divide this nation with it. Politicians do this all the time and they use it to control people, divide, and to control. Worse people in the world. They talk about race, they yell it, they push it, and yet they do nothing about it. And the American people fall for year after year and yet it goes on and on. You and I, no matter what color you are, are human beings and Americans. It is you and I who will solve issues - not politicians. You and I are responsible to work on inequalities together. Politicians and government will just make it worse. You and I have a lot of work to do, a lot of conversations, we just need to work at it in our communities and work our way up.
