Bulls-Eye on my Back

I also know that I am a privileged middle-aged white guy and I have a giant bull’s-eye on my back. And, in a way, my acute sensitivity to my privilege and my status as a Fat Target keeps me safely tucked away, head down over my keyboard, out of range. When you know they’re out hunting for you and your kind, you tend to keep out of sight.

America is apparently okay with white males feeling something that they would never let a female POC feel. If turnabout is your idea of justice, I feel for you, but I respectfully disagree with your interpretation of the word.

“Two wrongs don’t make a right” is as true on the national stage as it is in the schoolyard.
