Freedom is not a zero sum game

Report: Whites Think Less Bias Against Blacks Comes At Their Expense | TPMDC:
"It's a phenomenon that any observer of modern U.S. politics senses, but now we have a study documenting it: Despite all the evidence to the contrary, white Americans believe that African Americans' social progress in society is coming at their expense."

But privilege is. I am a white middle aged male. I am approximately as privileged in this society as it is possible to be. It will not hurt me to not have this level of privilege. Anyone that whines about loss of privilege needs to look in the mirror.
