    The problem is that there is no white supremacy issues where the government suppress black people. If you think so then you are a racist.

    Regular White people problems now include your hedge fund being tanked by Redditors.

    Move to White Appalachia, where white people wish they had your problems.

    what a great world it would be only dealing with white man problems hahaha
    that’s such a reasonable ask lol
    especially to white people, who know exactly how “to get their way” by complaining.

    I grew up in a majority-Black city, currently live in a majority-minority city, and only in the last few months an *slowly* starting to realize how different things are in most of the United States is. Because you don’t think about it: the proverbial fish doesn’t know how to answer “What’s it like to live in water?” because it just is! It *IS* reality – you treat people with respect irrespective of race or ethnicity (or gender, et al.) because they’re *people*. Never sunk in until today (rough day) that somehow people didn’t see all people as “people”. I’m still a bit confounded by it.

    “That’s an amazing feeling.” Charles spoke volumes with that sentence. Here’s to hoping that that “feeling” can be spread to EVERY city, town, neighborhood… One can dream, right? ☮💖

    Hearing the south being described as the place for black people to be prospering and free from prosecution from the police is like hearing something out of a mirror universe.

    My one wish for all of us is to have the unearned confidence, and opportunities of a middle-class white man.

    Hope America finally comes to peace! ,, Ladies, gentlemen!, Sorry that my text is off topic! .. I am from Russia, I live in Siberia, I am 63 years old, I position myself as an Inventor! For obvious reasons, my know-how did not find popularity in Russia, in a country where the budget is 50% formed from fossil fuels, my invention is doomed to oblivion! I hope for caring business people who are not indifferent to the environment and nature. My PTO rotor (conveyor type) will allow you to obtain energy from water flow (rivers, sea currents) on an industrial scale, using my underwater power plants without a dam, will help you avoid burning: coal, gas, oil, atom … I am looking for a sponsor. … investor (non-proprietary), my address is: genapopovgena2018genady@yandex.ru …. It’s great if my message reaches the office of President Bidon, who cares for the environment!

    Regular white people problems? I guess bad hair days and 3rd degree sunburn sound trivial to you. Sniff. 😢

    “…the privilige of regular white people problems”? – Believe me, you don’t want to have them, they just make you feel empty inside!
