I have been informed by a loud group of people that I, as the only white male present, need to apologise for my white male privilege.
I have been loudly berated that I have nothing to be proud of, either by accident of birth or by any deeds I have done or actions I have performed.
My counter argument is that if society doesn’t permit me to feel proud for the accidents that dictated where I was born, what my gender is, what colour I am, or my social and economic circumstances, I don’t see why I should feel guilty about them either.
And no apology would ever be forthcoming.
That… went down like a lead balloon.
