White Privilege Meets White Supremacy

AFRICANGLOBE - Giving up white privilege is simply not only the right approach, it is an approach that will lift us all. The appeal of Donald J. Trump seems squarely based on taking white privilege up a notch and to the next level; upping the ante on prejudices and an America that profiles and deports its immigrants, builds walls, and takes us backward to the 1960s and 1970s, when social unrest began to be replaced by an America that was for all the people, not just the chosen few.

What Shall We Do With White People?

Dear Fox News: Please Stop Using Asians To Attack Black People

AFRICANGLOBE - Bill O’Reilly’s attempts to use the success of Asian Americans to shame African Americans is shameful and historically illiterate.

That is the big lie that is keeping some African Americans from reaching their full potential."
