"Being white, they feel as though their opinions should be the starting point for any conversation about any topic."
Is this a caricature and a generalization, or is it grounded in cold, incontrovertible fact?
I find it telling that you don't hold yourself to the same standard as you hold us white folks to. If we have no right as whites to give "color" commentary on your race, what gives you the right to post this piece, assessing our motives and our ethos--you presumably being black? Do you see the disparity?
