Serena Shirley. Maybe you think the fight is over but your attitude proves it is not. Until we accept that slavery did evil and disgusting to the very souls of it's victims, that bigotry, sexism, and class-ism does this same kind of damage to it's victims. Until we acknowledge that slavery continues and we allow it (both here and in other countries) until all people understand and admit that such behavior as owning slaves is indefensibly wrong. The fight will never be truly over. I am so white that I almost glow, and have felt shame every time notice it for well over 50 years. At the age of 6 I lost a playmate and friend because the only hospital in the entire county was a "whites only" hospital. My friend dies because they did not approve of the color of her skin and refused her emergency life saving care.----- Few white people see or believe in the 'privilege' just being white gives them in life, but I see much of it and it shames me. ---- want to walk for a moment in a minority's shoes? Travel to where the very rich shop and try "just browsing" in a store, you will be able to feel how closely and suspiciously you are being watched and be offended at the implication that you are most likely going to steal something. This is a normal everyday shopping experience for many who do not fit into the 'middle to upper class, straight, white, christian' mold.
