When “Life Hacking” Is Really White Privilege

If you seem to be “getting everything you want,” you should probably examine whether you’re getting it at someone’s expense, or whether you’re just constantly, in small ways, making the world worse.

As the culture evolves, people who benefitted from the old ways invariably see themselves as victims. Once you grasp the concept of privileged distress, you’ll see it everywhere: the rich feel “punished” by taxes; whites believe they are the real victims of racism; employers’ religious freedom is threatened when they can’t deny contraception to their employees — it goes on and on. ...

Supremacy itself isn’t hate. You may even have affection for the person you feel superior to. ... But supremacy turns to hate when the feeling of innate superiority is openly challenged. ....

[People experiencing privileged distress] deserve compassion, but [the actually oppressed] deserve justice. ... [we should] acknowledge their distress while continuing to point out the difference in scale. ... The ones who still want to be good people need to be offered hope that such an outcome is possible in this new world.
