US Senator Jim Webb: "White privilege is a myth."


From Wall Street Journal…

I have dedicated my political career to bringing fairness to America’s economic system and to our work force, regardless of what people look like or where they may worship. Unfortunately, present-day diversity programs work against that notion, having expanded so far beyond their original purpose that they now favor anyone who does not happen to be white.

In an odd historical twist that all Americans see but few can understand, many programs allow recently arrived immigrants to move ahead of similarly situated whites whose families have been in the country for generations. These programs have damaged racial harmony. And the more they have grown, the less they have actually helped African-Americans, the intended beneficiaries of affirmative action as it was originally conceived.

Pat Buchanan defends Jim Webb on MSNBC. Chris Mathews seems to think that even more affirmative action is needed and that blacks should be given preferential treatment over both whites and other minorities.
