FYI: I'm sure that am a choleric person.
This means that, even I'm trying to keep these tendencies of mine at bay, I will sometimes make a fool of myself by speaking without thinking first and going on rants about some things.

Fellow white people, please listen to this, a lot of the people around me have yet to understand it:
"You can’t renounce your class position. Privilege is not an accusation or damnation, it’s simply an observation about your class position. White liberals understand the concept of privilege as if it is an original sin and that is pathological"
