I Checked My Privilege, And It's Doing Just FineLiberals have a new word for what normal people call “success.” They call it “privilege,”
as if a happy, prosperous life is the result of some magic process related to where your great-great-great-grandfather came from. It’s the latest leftist argument tactic, which means it is a tactic designed to prevent any argument and to beat you into rhetorical submission. Conservatives, don’t play their game.- - Kurt Schlichter

The only social 'privilege' operant in society in the U.S. is that of being born here, the descendent of some immigrant or slave, rather than having been reared in some crumbling Euro-ghetto or third-world sewer on The Dark Continent.

For those heavily complected individuals that are worried about 'privilege' may I introduce the first "Marcus Garvey Transatlantic Canoe Race" between Daytona Beach and Malabo, Equatorial Guinea located in the Bight of Bonny.
Winner gets $1M gold, a cottage on the mainland and a bucket of privilege including citizenship in said country.

Screw Check Your Privilege. Check Your Fly. Then Check Your Altitude, if you're an airline pilot. Or Check Your Echo Sounder if you're a ship's captain. Focus on what's important.
