I somehow stumbled upon this little gem. I couldn’t have said it any better myself.

Here are just a few highlights from the article by TOURE in vice.com:

– “Besides, blaming black people is as American as Apple computers.”

– “…the nature of privilege is that you don’t have to think deeply about your privilege if you don’t want to.”
