How long before the Obama nightmare ends?

Fundamentally transforming America
 The Myth of White Privilege
Stephen Frazier
May 9, 2016
The notion of WHITE PRIVILEGE is nothing but an excuse for non accomplishmentarianism.

In TODAY'S world, if Whites or anyone else has an advantage it is not because they 
TOOK it, but because we let them have it unopposed. Our grandparents used to say that Blacks have to be twice as good to get half of what
Whites have gotten. Our grandparents lived during a time when that may have indeed been
true, but today is a new day, and the only thing keeping US from getting TWICE what we
have already is not White people or White privilege. It is US. White people don't have the time nor the need to focus on holding us back. They are too
busy making sure they keep moving forward. Besides, we do such a great job of holding
ourselves back and they can't do it to us any better than we are doing it to ourselves. We could be ten times as great as we are if we focus on achieving our goals without regard
to how they relate to White people. There are opportunities galore for Blacks to improve
ourselves in every way possible but too many of us seem to think we cannot move forward
unless a White man steps back. What a humungous waste of time and energy. Never before in the annals of history have so many done so little with so much.
