THE ACCURACY IS OVERWHELMING.
It’s scary how people overlook that most critiques of Obama begins with his non-native background (like that’s something Americans can really complain about) and yet people reject the position that he’s faced so much opposition because of his race.

Lupita Nyong’o was inspired to be an actress after seeing Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg in The Color Purple.
Whoopi Goldberg realized she could BE an actress after seeing Nichelle Nichols in Star Trek
fondulady asked: When people say, "color doesn't matter" it translates to me as "your oppression doesn't matter. I'm not going to recognize that your identity, cultural practices, and social experiences are something that you're affected by everyday."

A white student may feel discomfort when it’s pointed out to him how he has benefited from structural racism, but to compare that discomfort to discrimination is a false equivalency. Hurt feelings hurt, but it is not oppression. But hurt feelings can be bad for business. And a lot of powerful people think colleges should act more like businesses. When they do, students act more like customers. And our likely customers might not be amicable to discussions about structural racism. If the customer is always right, then the majority share of customers is more right than the minority.
