In those awful episodes, a religious or ethnic minority group lacking such privilege would likely be collectively slandered and/or targeted with surveillance or profiling (or worse) if some of its individuals comprised most of the mass shooters. However, white male privilege means white men are not collectively denigrated/targeted for those shootings - even though most come at the hands of white dudes

But profiling all gun owners if perfectly fine.

Also profiling them all as "privileged" is acceptable in some circles too apparently.

Nabb1: Someone got paid to write this sniveling piece of drivel?


His name is David Sirato. Someone told me that somewhere in TFA there is a way to get a message to him.
