Rex Murphy is a White Privilege I Could Do Without

Rex Murphy offers us this pearl of wisdom in his latest National Post column:

"It is bitterly ironic that the anti-racist message has been reduced to this: You have all that you have only because you have white skin."

No Rex. You have all that you have because of your truly unparalleled talents as an apologist for the wealthy and powerful. No person of any race or gender can suck up to powerful interests with as much self-righteousness and ostentatious erudition as you. You are a sycophant extraordinaire.

You have no qualms with knowingly misrepresenting the white privilege thesis in your hard-won column at the National Post. It's true Rex, you cannot explain every single advantage that every white person has only by reference to white privilege. Therefore, white privilege does not exist. Case closed. That must really put the National Post editorial board and other predominantly white institutions at ease.
