White Privilege 101: Getting in on the Conversation
Learning materials supplied by the University of Delaware.
“[a] racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. The term applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the United States, regardless of class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality.”
I am guessing that Ms. Sholock is a true "something happened" believer of the Duke Lacrosse rape hoax.

Why am I not the least surprised that you make that guess, Mein Heir?

Actually, Shmuck, I'll have to agree with Heir on this one, as a Duke alumnus for two reasons. The first should be obvious (Duke lacrosse). The second is an infamous column in the Duke Chronicle from 3 1/2 years ago by Philip Kurian called "The Jews" (reprinted on the StandWithUs website at http://www.standwithus.com/news_post.asp?NPI=141 Currently the Chronicle website is offline.)
